    Local thought it to mark the house of someone who either done wrong or diseased, a 10 min lesson and sent on their way knowing..

    I'm not 100% sure about the bolt on the dam wall. There's another one on the eastern end as well.. Not had a chance to research it yet, though.

    Aren't bolts placed on dam walls to be checked regularly for movement,
    I've came across one locally and this bolt wasn't in the OS database...
    nothing showing on a quick Google search though...

    You might be right there. I've not had the chance to check properly yet.

    Sywell Reservoir. I was wondering if they were movement indicators as well.

    I noticed this BM on the corner post of the cemetery on Towcester Road a couple of days ago as No1 daughter was driving past on the way back from town.
    I rode there today to grab a pic.
    I thought there must be summat on a wall like this, but only just spotted it!

    A few finds on today's ride from Great Brickhill, Nr. Milton Keynes.

    DSC_0561.JPG

    The first, a non-curly GR postbox, at the entrance to Greensand Walk, actually a bridleway, therefore, rideable (on my Trek Fuel EX9) :okay:

    DSC_0562.JPG

    A barely discernible BM on the Red Lion pub.

    DSC_0565.JPG

    And, finally, a rough BM on Great Brickhill church.

    One I Missed the other day, coming back from B.R.I. to the city centre, so I went back.
    Only an E R, not an E VII R as I first thought.
    CAM01170.jpg
    Saint Mary Magdeline Church
    CAM01172.jpg
    Access to the second showing, wasn't possible. Building work and locked gates. "My door is always open..."
    CAM01174.jpg
    Shown as a Trig Point
    CAM01175.jpg
    As is the chimney
    CAM01176.jpg

    V R wall mounted postbox.
    CAM01177.jpg
    CAM01178.jpg
    Opposite the Shytell Road(Genuine) sign.

    Unable to find it listed, so I've to assume that as there's nothing there anymore it's not been included.

    Johnstone again, in the pouring rain..
    1 chance find and the other was one from 5 looked for...
    Bridge below NCN 75 cycle track (I assume Sustrans volunteers have cleaned the area around the bridge and run ups to the cycle track as I've looked here before)
    NS 4355 6369 Johnstone, Old Railway (Bridge), Wall.jpg

    In the town area
    NS 4235 6296 Johnstone, Graham St, Wall.jpg
    Looks like its been scratched with one of those old beer can openers
    (hands up who can remember then)
