In Wantage for trig intersected stations. Thought I caught a glance of a cut benchmark whilst passing, but turned out to be a flush bracket.

Seen this one many times driving or cycling past but had the opportunity to get a photo today. Building now houses the Orchard House Clinic. FB in good condition. http://maps.jochta.com/benchmarks.php?id=666

Building now used by Wantage Clinic for Osteopathy and Complementary Therapies and Neave House: Wantage Constituency Conservative Association whose entrance porch is further along the face which holds the FB, which is in good shape.

I've visited Wantage a few times recently on the hunt for this FB, but gave up on the suspicion it was gone. Annoyingly it isn't gone at all, I just hadn't looked hard enough. Oh well.
