Long Description:
This Cut Benchmark is located on Vineyard Road in Wellington, Telford. It can be found on a brick wall on the north side of the road at the junction with Crescent Road. It is a rather poor example of a Benchmark as the OS would rarely cut the datum line into the mortar of a brick wall. However, it's at the correct grid ref, and matches the description of a mark described in the OS database. It was originally levelled in 1966 at 96.646m above Ordnance Datum Newlyn.

Waypoint: B29760.

More details can be found on the Ordnance Survey Benchmark Database (www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm59174)
Type of Trigpoint: Cut Bench Mark

Condition: Slightly Damaged
