Photograph of the stonemason`s benchmark on Kirkapol Church

Colour photograph of the stonemason`s benchmark etched into a foundation stone of Kirkapol Church. Although eroded and difficult to see, the upward-pointing arrow is in the centre of the photograph. The benchmark is exactly where the Ordnance Survey map of 1878 puts it.
