Ordnance Survey Benchmark

You may have seen one of these before on your travels. This is the one on All Saints' church here in Milton. It's an Ordnance Survey benchmark, a type called a "cut mark" one, i.e. it's carved into the stone.

Spring at Milton Hall #3 Reprised

You may remember that I took a photo of this gravestone in Milton Hall last month. I said at the time that it would have worked better with some side illumination to bring out the writing and today turned out to be the day so here it is again with the sun in just the right place.
