Ordnance Survey benchmark

Location: Tockington village, built into a garden wall just west of the village centre and the junction with the road to Almondsbury.

Date recorded: Friday, 23 May 2008

Type of milestone: Inscribed Stone

Notes: For much of the year, this milestone is well hidden behind a layer of creeping ivy. It bears many similarities to the next milestone on this route (at Olveston), so it is quite likely that the word "MILES" was inscribed below what is now ground level. The benchmark symbol was probably originally below even that – if so, it must have been recut in its present visible location at a later date.
