    The original Ordnance Survey 'Complete Bench Marks' file HERE
    Once unzipped it is a 47 MB file,
    I use CSV editor to open (it takes ages to open), but my main areas NS and NO, I copied and pasted and created separate files as it makes life easier.
    I searched for Overstone on my OS mapping

    Be doing good as these marks are mostly 60 year old:okay:

    here is what I copied out of it
    Overstone.jpg

    Looks like I missed one at the top out:blush:

    Go get them:okay:

    200 yards from my old abode in Cliffsend Grove, and just up the road from The Sportsman pub.
    I lived in there as well :laugh:

    I almost went in the Sportsman for a coffee. T'was cold and a headwind-ish out. Frozen hands at the Hugin but they warmed up on the way back with a slight tailwind....and snow for a couple of miles. Just 15 miles but glad I did it, hands and feet really suffer in the cold.:okay:
     
  11. Nice boat. Looks like a lot of work went into it.

    Pretty certainly not a benchmark! More like some very old graffiti. Not sure if I'm seeing things, but is that a date to the left of the arrow? 18??
    Anyways.. It's in Moulton village, on Overstone Road, opposite Prince of Wales Row.
