County Durham. Had a really good look but can't find it. There is no evidence on the stonework of where it might have been positioned.

Could not see FB (should be on W face at N end of E parapet?). Note that BM 101.95m on MasterMap is presumably the cut BM on E face at S end of W parapet.

Doesn't seem to be on either face - could be buried beneath road surfacing. Bridge old, maybe not 2GL vintage?
