Shepherds' Cairn
Roger Morris has informed us that following his intervention the Shepherd's Cairn on Plenmeller Common has been accepted by Ordnance Survey as a 'memorial.'

Ordnance Survey's E Mail
I am writing with the outcome of the investigation into the marking of a feature on our mapping at approximate grid reference NY 7495 6109.

Our technical team have looked into this, and per our specification have added the text ‘Memorial’ to the existing description.

This will appear in our large-scale mapping from its next release in April and on our 1:25 000 mapping, both digital and paper, when it in turn is next revised.

Well done Roger!

Roger now intends to approach Northumberland C.C. to put up a bladed sign/ finger post sign from the road. The absence of any indication of its presence on the ground hasn't helped the awareness of the cairn's existence.
