Church of St. John the Baptist
Broad Street, Brinklow Village
(near to Coventry)
In the photograph above, you will see a white arrow
that shows the location of a chiseled horizontal
mark that surveyors have made in the stone
to serve as an elevation reference.
It is difficult to see above - it looks like an
arrow pointing up to a line and I believe it dates back to 1856.
The church is much older than that.
Below is the benchmark at the Council House, Coventry.
When I noticed the benchmark on the
Council House, Coventry, I
hoped wondered if I had
discovered a secret coded message of sorts. Of course, it was
nothing like that. This benchmark in Brinklow is the
second one I have found. I'll show you the 3rd tomorrow.
In the meantime, enjoy the view from the churchyard
(similar to the one I shared on 1st April.)
Interestingly, this church isn't the only church around
here to have a blue door.
