    Nice haul! I found quite a few on the bridges a while ago. Not sure if they’re the same ones, but mine may have been nearer to Northampton.
    That bolt is interesting. Which bridge was that on, do you remember?

    Evening @PeteXXX

    I think it was on the road that runs down from Grafton Regis, Theres another bolt further around the arch of the bridge but I'd have fallen into the canal trying to get the picture ^_^

    Sometimes, the quest is tricky... or downright dangerous!

    Many of the bridges along that stretch have flush brackets.

    Would that make it harder or easier to end up wet!

    You're fairly safe! I've got a big circular hike planned for next week which takes in that stretch of the canal, so I'll see what pickings there are.

    Too cold and frosty for a ride this morning.

    Spotted this benchmark whilst driving through Wollaston on an errand for my parents . It's on the Methodist church .

    You could end up having to explain what you're doing, to disbelieving police officers!

    Afternoon, folks.
    I've been based in the frozen East of Jockland.
    Bagged quite a few marks on my travels, I'll post a few when I return back to base.
    Hiked back up Kinpurnie Tower to bag the mark I never knew was there the day I bagged the trig point:rolleyes:
    Keep warm darn sarff:smile:

    Back at base..
    Topical one this
    Dundee, Perth Rd
    It must be spreading north
    NO 3663 2996 Dundee, Perth Rd, Wall.jpg

    Three from other 13 I got..
    Newtyle, Kinpurney Tower ( a reet stiff ascent to get this one)
    NO 3225 4173 Newtyle, Kinpurney Tower.jpg

    Newtyle
    There is a CBM here
    NO 2913 4118 Newtyle, Coupar Angus Rd, Gatepost.jpg
    Newtyle village
    NO 2988 4141 Newtyle, Commercial St, Building.jpg

    Now searched the village and some of the outlying bits,
    29 marks and 20 found although more than a few marks are faded badly due the local stone used to build. An 'old' village which helped.
    3 out of 4 1949 marks still prominent funnily.
    Edit to add. The tower one is 1949 but is just outside the village and much higher.

    A plaque on access shaft into a coal mine on the delivery road to Coalville retail park....
    Probably a very long, dark drop under this!!
