Unclear if OS 2 chains was measured from the Church or churchyard entrance. If the former, then SW angle of house at 24 Main St was possible location. No sign but maybe gatepost was a later addition. Presumably replaced by 3GL G3621. Also noted that 2298 appears on 2GL Wolsingham to Hexham - re-used or duplicate number? Cut BM with bolt noted on church.
