Is it possible to see anywhere or is it hidden away?

Hi all, same question as Pod really - any update as to the location of the buff on the field please?
Am driving to Cambridge with 3 colleagues on Tuesday and was wondering if I would see it as I was driving past.

Many thanks

If you go into John's field you can see it from there, tucked behind the Ospreys as you look from the trailer.
