Wandering through Bristol-Warren, RI

As mentioned in the Waymarking post, I was in Bristol, RI, to see a friend of mine participate in an eco-event there, and, afterwards, I did waymarks and benchmarks. This entry is about the benchmarks.


439, LW0559 – This one was found by a former gas station building that is now used for law offices. It will be interesting to see what the building is used for in future visites by people. The mark is likely protected enough.

B29 – LW0569 – This vertically mounted disk is near a water tower. The marker itself is on a rock. Nearby, both by the road and in the plot of land around the water tower, there were temporary survey stakes and plastic ribbon planted. They must be updating the pipes. The water tower is a BM itself as LW2313.

BR001, LW5523 – This one was below the grass, but it wasn’t that hard to find. The view of the harbor from here is nice!

441, LW0562 – This one was by both an old burial ground and a grand entrance to the Colt State Park. Look for the bulls!


Methodist Church, LW2309 – This is an old white church steeple in downtown Warren. It is still a Methodist Church and appears to still host an active congregation. There were several displays at its front entrance.

Warren Town Hall Cupola, LW2308 – This town hall is one of the most impressive ones I have seen. Below the cupola is a relief that has much detail.

Others were attempted but not found for various reasons.

By this time, it was raining and dark, so this was the last stop of the day.
