Just a utility marker this morning
At Holcot cross road.
Whilst out to see Tornado this morning, I happened to spot a mark on 'Roman Ridge Bridge', on Ridge Road, as it becomes to the north of Peckfield Bar
Oddly (to me anyway) it was on the capping stone, not on a vertical surface
Circled here, & photographed in the same direction as my photograph
On my way to a certain rugby event in Edinburgh
and 100 m from the actual stadium (Murrayfield for those wondering) I found this on a railway bridge
and of course, I enjoyed the game
Seems to be one or two not on a vertical surface round here.
What's the difference between a Traversing Point & a Trig Point?
One of each, less than 100 yards apart, on the map. I think I found the Traversing Point, not the Trig Point(Now covered by spoil from when the nearby houses were built.
Nice BM on Wykes Barn in Bozeat. Not sure if @biggs682 has bagged this already?
Similarly with this next one..
BM on the bridge over an abandoned railway line on the B526, Horton the to Hackelton road, both on today’s chilly ride.
Yeah think i have , should have popped in for a brew
Glorious sunshine but cold wind so a short bike ride to gather local cut marks to engage with this thread.
First one is a cut mark on a crumbling culvert under the B660 at Gt Gidding
2nd one is opposite end of the village on a bridge over the upper end of the Alconbury brook
Last is a cut mark on a roadside farm building in Thurning.
In Wykes Barn, or your gaff?
Nice finds.. That first one is going to be history soon!!
You could try Wykes Barn but not sure what your chances are but i meant our gaff
did you go around to Bozeat church to see the strange marking

I’ll hold you to that offer, ta
Nope, I didn’t. No churches today, just roadside finds.
Not quite Benchmarks but very geographical.
Does anyone remember the slogan "Thurleigh NO! NO! NO!" from the mid 1970's when Thurleigh airfield was being considered as a candidate site for the third London Airport. Well on a bike ride last summer I spied this
In Keysoe Row on the B660 the faded remnants of the anti airport campaign slogan on a typical Bedfordshire black barn. The house holder gave the impression that she hadn't really taken any notice of what it said especially when a sweaty lycra clad oik was trying to explain that it was living history!
The question is, are there any more barns left with this slogan as I seem to remember it was a widespread campaign in Bedfordshire.
Something else to spy whilst looking for cut marks, flush brackets, trig pillars, OS bolts and fundamental bench marks and other roadside markers.
That's not Jim Trotts Barn?
Did you cycle to Murrayfield ?
