    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.

  8. 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

    Found it!!!!

    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"!

    I am Lance Doperstrong! Did not the regular deliveries of jiffy bag packages give the game away?
