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.

200 yards from my old abode in Cliffsend Grove, and just up the road from The Sportsman pub.

Nice boat. Looks like a lot of work went into it.
~Here ya go~

Anyways.. It's in Moulton village, on Overstone Road, opposite Prince of Wales Row.
