The Walls of Derry - the Benchmark Circuit

I visited Derry today and walked the wonderfully intact walls.

As ever, my focus was on that bit of the wall 10cm above the ground and I was soon rewarded.  I haven't seen an OSNI benchmark for a while.

I kept my eyes peeled for more.

And there was another one.

And more.

This part of the wall faces towards a Loyalist area (read the sign).

Every so often you find a hairy one.  [I'm referring to benchmarks here].

By this stage my sister-in-law noted that I'd even got her looking for these random cuts in walls.  I am a benchmarking missionary.

I found seven in all.

I bet there are more.  There's a part of me that wants to rewalk the walls and see if I've missed one.
