No it was a bit wild. Pitched up for the night. Great views from there.

A couple of BM's I spotted on my way to JoG in 2011 the first is a button on the bridge over the Ribble at Walton Bridge just south of Preston Map ref 552287

the second is a bench mark on a cast iron plate unfortunately I can't remember the exact location other than it's on the A6 north of Kendal roughly between Leagate Map ref 541006 and Hollowgate 548032 on the way up to Shap

Percussive maintainance, if it don't fit, hit it with the hammer.

A benchmark on the side of the Post Office at Newburgh, Lancashire, nice to see it marked on

a turn of the 19th/20th century map, the old hand measured maps have an impressive degree of accuracy

when you compare them side to side with a modern aerial view.

I am highly fascinated and intrigued when I come across “stuff” that has been made longer ago my country ( Canada ) has been known to man.

The area now known as Canada has been inhabited for thousands of years, even the arctic I understand :wink:

Looks a bit like stone to me, could you cycle by again to check? Diolch
A benchmark on wood would not last long :?
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
We love safety cameras & STOP signs

Well done everyone. A superb haul, and dare I say it much more fun than chasing the CUK checkpoint things... :lol:

Found one on a route I've been using regularly for a few years and never noticed before - it's not in a good place to stop but I'll endeavour to get a snapshot of it in the new year, hopefully without being mown down!
