Benchmarks

Submitted by on Monday, 18 November 2013No Comment

I have found listed a total of 62 Benchmarks within a 5km (3 mile) radius of home – I’ve decided that this is probably far enough to cover all that I can sensibly see from my window (In reality I can see further than this in certain directions – and nowhere near this far in others, so it’s a good compromise)
I know there are more benchmarks than this but this is the list to be starting off with.

The map reference links take you to the OS map on Streetmap.co.uk
