Only one benchmark today on the Old Montague Club in Weekley .
I've got a feeling I've done that one.. End of the wall, on the downhill West out of Kelmarsh?
Embarrassingly, this benchmark is just over 100 yards from my house! As it's on a 1970's bridge, built when the housing was developed, I've not even looked at it on the 1,653 ish times I've ridden and walked over it..
Hey ho.. Here it is, now
Nice wheels Pete.
Ta.. They certainly go round and round!
I did wonder
Early morning ride out stopped off at Royd Moor view point. I've gone past a few times but never been inside.
1000 sq mile view, 1080 ft above sea level. Built with 125 tonnes of stone
One near by village I often go though was home to Nicholas Saunderson scientist and mathematician known as "blind professor" (1687-1739) who over came hardship and disability and went on to hold the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics at Cambridge. (other holders inc Newton, Babbage and Hawking) Just show anything is possible.
Going to give one away now
I spotted benchmark on this bridge (Castleford - Woodlesford - Leeds) this afternoon, when driving back from a friends on WaterGate (side-turning hidden, to the other side of the bridge
So having a few minutes to spare at the terminus in Guiseley whilst driving the 33's i had the opportunity to bag these before setting back off to Leeds.
Bradford Road,Guiseley......Opposite Lennox Leisure on a mile marker.
Close up,with rivet.
A little walk further up Bradford Road, Guiseley is this.Rather worn but still just about visible.Is it a BM or a utility marker?
A closed Bank, of one origin, or another, presumably?
We also have (had!!) a 'Counting House' pub, in Pontefract
Sadly, it's now closed & left to rack & ruin
I do believe that an enforcement order of some kind has been placed on it, as barring the Castle, & Churches, it's probably the oldest building left in the town (as locals disagree with the stated dates, & reckon in parts it goes back to the mid 1400s)
Circa 2004 picture, I think?
Looks like a utility marker
Old GPO marker. Missing the numbers/letters combination.
Took a hike up Dumyat (near Stirling) yesterday to do a SOTA activation
Beacon, no doubt to warn us of smelly, lice-ridden, unkempt invaders from the south
Benchmark is on the other side of the bridge, but at 'my side of the road'
The Station was up the access-track (as it is now) immediately to my right
North Eastern Railway, in the early 1900s
