Just got to another at lunchtime, and I've spotted one that should be close enough to a road to claim, which I hope to bag this evening on the way home.
All were accessable on footpaths, even though one footpath had been ploughed and planted on! The one today I had to hop over the gate to get within the 100m circle to claim, but I wasn't caught doing it.
I may return to the one that I could not get to first time, as I noticed a footpath heading towards it from another direction, but as it's a quary and bird sanctuary, I didn't push my luck.
I presume 'posted' means fenced in? Over here farmers do get protective about 'their' land. However, there's a new "right to roam" law, and the old "Tespassers will be prosecuted" signs could only apply if criminal damage, or burglary, could be proven.
As I used to walk overhead lines, I'm used to hoping over gates and then pleading ignorance and having to talk my way out, appologising and promissing to read the wayleave or easment properly next time.
