    Greenock..
    Main entrance to Cemetery
    Fun fact..
    was once the largest Municipal cemetery in Europe...

    I've seen this mark before but it isn't on the database BUT scanning through some old OS maps online last night and saw it used in a 1857 OS amp..
    it is the B.M.76.8 mark...(the other isn't there)

    Spotted this CP boundary stone in Lympstone for the first time a couple of days ago. Apparently (according to http://www.dartmoor-crosses.org.uk/Devon_Marker_Stones/ED_Lympstone.htm) the inscription on this side reads WD [War Department] 1867, though I'm not entirely sure that's correct - looks more like 'VTD' from this angle, although that would make the V very narrow. On the other side is a much more modern CP inscription in inset lead.

    It's amazing what people pass on a regular basis without seeing things

    It's one of the benefits of having the aim of taking interesting photos that one looks out for novel things to photograph. I've long played such games with friends and have now started a public Facebook Group called "Devon Photos - Where Am I?", so am being even more alert to curiosities etc. that might have been overlooked by lots of people, as the 'reveal' is so much fun.

    I think they might twig that Devon hasn't got any 7000ft mountains...

    If there are any Devon-lovers here, the group is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2382366501798317/ - we've got about 160 members so far. It would work just as well for any county, I'm sure.

    I wouldn't be so naughty as to do that! I was actually walking to the river taxi when I spotted it. Don't know how I had missed it, because I have walked and driven past it hundreds of times.
    Click on the link provided for the exact location. It's actually right on the corner before you enter the dark arches heading out towards Bridgewater Place, the same side as the newsagent and burger shop.
    I have seen another one in town,on the bridge over the river near Asda house. Will bag it when I get the chance.

    Got "odd looks"when I was getting that one. Just aid I was with "The Benchmark Preservation Society" and the BT engineers became very helpful. Even going as far as removing some of the barriers to allow better access.
