Chance spot on roadside barn while driving past. West side of road. I was in trigging mode therefore not carrying any levelling data. At the time, I did wonder if G3000 was nearby, but now I know it is not. At G2999, the householder interested to know more about flush bracket. Its BM height value is 334.45m or 1097.27Ft above sea level and it was emplaced around 1954 when it was levelled. The flush bracket is in good condition.
