I spotted this benchmark (BM) on January 7 2020 on a building at 14-16 Swinegate, next to Blayd's Yard (on the left in photo 2). I had known there might be a BM there but had never seen it before so it was a surprise that I did as I was only casually looking. The BM is however very obvious so I don't know why I missed it before! I've found there was a BM there on an at least 1891 map so I wonder if it is the original or recarved at some stage. The first photo is a close-up of the BM and the second shows its location on the central stone column of 14-16 Swinegate (currently a building to let that was itself a letting agent!).
