Any idea what the green plaque is for?
I knew I should have taken a pic of it! Nowt special; just a plaque put up by the council to commemorate the original architect (1865), Charles Phipps, and an honourable mention of Frank Matcham for his remodelling in 1897.
Should we declare war? @Drago
Damn the man to Hades!
A BM on Abington Park Old lodge's on this morning's Santa Run
He'd never last.
Heading down Sutton-in-Ashfield, or Newark, tomorrow with SWMBO
She's doing some consultancy work down there, but still not sure which offices the meeting is at
Should be quite a few nice BMs/features in Newark (been before, but not for at least 10 years)
S in A will be a new place to me
A few cut bench marks from various trips I've had recently
Firstly two on opposite sides of the main entrance to Winchester Cathedral
There was another on Staple Gardens in Winchester, which I thought I had photo'd, but I can't find it, it was just below this sign
Then one on a church in the main street (Derby Street?) through Leek.
One on the arch over Eastgate in Chester, just below the fancy clock (second pic)
Another on Chester Cathedral, with an Xmas star in the background. I was taking a photo with my wife in the background and a passerby asked if I wanted a picture taken with the both of us in the photo, I said "don't be silly, I'm only photographing the bench mark"!
Dropped her off, at KIngs Mill Hospital (S in A), & drove over to Newark
Was there for a while. & kept looking, but never saw any benchmarks
One bench took my eye though, it was in the Castle grounds
And, this on Church Street, near junction with KirkGate
First new to me benchmark this morning and first for the Falcon .
On a house in Risely ,Bedfordshire
I know the Newark in Illinois, 800 people, up by Sandwich. Mentioned on the plaque.
Makes it all sound like his own idea.
I am Lance Doperstrong! Did not the regular deliveries of jiffy bag packages give the game away?
