Re: CUT BENCH MARK

Having recently noticed that a Bench Mark (BM) was marked on a 1953/54 1:1250 map at the junction of Infirmary Street and City Square on the then GPO building I decided to see if the BM was still there (it is not marked on a same scale 1961/69 map nor a 1964/70 map I saw). The BM is still there but I nearly did not see it as it is worn and a bit damaged looking. I would never have randomly spotted it without knowing it might be there. I took these photos on June 28 2017. The first is a close-up of the BM and the second shows its location at the corner of the old GPO building.
