Attached is an image of FACELESS MONK.  Keep an eye out for him in BECTIVE ABBEY.There are 4 standard controls that will require a timed** proof of passage eg till receipt .  There are 4 info controls at SYRNE CHURCH AND CROSS(48.7k),BECTIVE ABBEY(64.5k),MONASTERBOICE (145.3) and OLD MELIFONT (152.8).(The info control at Bective will relate to the position of THE FACELESS MONK within the ruin).  Make sure to bring a pen.  The simple question will be on the brevet card and this is where you will fill in the answer.
