A seen before benchmark at the top of the mad mile and turn left is moonshine gap .
Goodness @Bobby Mhor and @biggs682 you've both got very good eyesight! Those would be easily missed.
Who said that?
I've passed the previous two days marks many a time..
See the link on the top quote..
I have been trying this out..
as I said on previous post..
3 from 15 checks
but that's another two nearby town/village completely checked...
so I can keep my eyes on the road although there are many not on the database.....
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
That's on my commute...
It sure is
Cut bench mark on a railway bridge beside Goostrey station, Cheshire.
Junction of Keighley Road & Beechwood Road. In it's origional brick tower/box.
Found on a Renfrewshire country road...
As I said, eyes like a s**thouse rat!
I just stopped in the immediate area,
got the phone out, opened Chrome and this page HERE
clicked on the GPS symbol and voila!
Luckily, this one originally was .4 metre above ground level but its been built up since they measured it.
They ain't always there...
I looked for another three in the area which weren't there anymore...
I've counted close on 500 Bench Marks within a mile of the town centre that have disappeared. Either lost to development or simply covered over. The latter may reappear one day.
Have a gander in your local area. See if you can work out where the should be.
The symbol now used for Trig Point was in olden maps, a mark for a high spot....
Black is a present day trig point...
Using the picture in the post, and the link, head North on the lower road and you'll see the bench marks displayed. Head South on the top road , less than 50 years old, and you'll get the church.
Whole post quoted because I was being lazy. From there he can explore his local area using the link.
