    I can't remember bagging those. I did get one on Kettering Rd, & one opposite St Giles Church several months ago..

    One on the church in Marton, near Congleton. I believe it's the oldest timbered church in the country.

    Today I was in Knutsford again and thought I'd try to get to the bottom of whether the one I posted previously on the church tower was a bench mark or not. It wasn't as I found a clear one on the wall facing the street below (junction King St and Church Hill). The tower in the background is the church tower.

    Goodness @Bobby Mhor and @biggs682 you've both got very good eyesight! Those would be easily missed.

    I have been trying this out..
    as I said on previous post..
    3 from 15 checks:ohmy:
    but that's another two nearby town/village completely checked...

    That benchmark took me ages to find as it's on a gate post in the middle of nowhere and i dismissed the gatepost 2 or 3 times
