    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 :tongue:

    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.

    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?

  11. 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?

    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
