08/04/2010 Couldn’t really miss this one, next to the Knavesmire and opposite the gateway to Hob Moor. Fairly clear mark, pretty sure that this hasn’t been moved to make way for the cycle path.

28/03/2010 – Nice clear mark that was thankfully above the height of the damp proof course. I think the grid for this one is slightly out and should possibly be SE59895084.
