When in the Outer Ring Road/Harrogate Road roundabout area on January 11 2019 I went in the grounds of the nearby St John's Church, Moor Allerton. Having never been there before I walked round the outside of the nice church and by chance I happened to spot an otherwise hard to see benchmark (BM) on the church. I have now found a BM is recorded there on an 1893 1:2,500 map in the Old Maps UK website, so it is very old. It does however not look to be badly eroded so perhaps it is the original BM that has been recarved at some stage? The first photo is a close-up of the BM and the second shows its location near the base of the buttress.
