Ordnance Survey New Forest Height Benchmarks     

I have managed to locate 9 New Forest Benchmarker Posts plus one at Stagbury Hill Furzley Lane near Bramashw.    


All 10 are with in the cattle grid system of the New Forest where Horses and Cattle can roam.


As one will see, I have found the inspiration to locate these after travelling past the Longslade Sway Benchmarker a number of times towalk my 5 month old puppy Jemma.     Jemma has checked out a number of posts, and enjoyed the views of the Forest whilst looking for the Benchmarkers   


Most are high up and at the tops of hills.      I hope you enjoy the pictures.     There are more Benchmarkers possibly just outside the Forest boundary, which, I may try to locate.
