Buried under lorry load of shingle and shells, presumably dumped to shore up the sea defences. After numerous false starts we eventually locate it and dig down to the foundation block and FB. From the SE edge of the collapsed concrete semicircular gun emplacement walk 3.8m towards the LHS of the 1st floor window in the wood clad wall. With luck if you dig you'll strike the concrete foundation - its about 25cm lower than the top of he bank.

Returned with improvised prodder and hit lucky. Dug out a fair amount of recently dumped shingle to reveal the toppled trig, not moved from previous photos. The concrete plug base is uppermost and the trig leans down hill at angle of 56 degrees to the boatyard fence. It's 14m North of the boat yard fence. The plug is c 1 foot below the level of the adjacent grass. The concrete defences seen in the photos aided location. Flushbracket is luckily facing up and we just excavated till we saw that. Recovered with thin layer of shingle but the shingle is generally unstable. Disproportionately delighted with our find (in pouring rain!). Parking adjacent but we sailed.

I had read that this trig had been exposed by recent storms. We are down here from the North East for a family visit and had to make time to visit.

Drove down to have a look at the newly reappeared pillar! Very close to the compound, I walked further down expecting it to be nearer the coffee van! Donít ask me why! Sad to see it toppled, would be lovely to have it reinstated

Lying in shingle just to seaward of bank, 14m N of boatyard fence, GPS suggests 4m SE of its original location. Someone's made an attempt on the FB but the concrete's very sound. Happened to be close to high tide when I arrived, luckily didn't matter. Great find! I dug out the top surface, spider intact, centre cap gone as previously mentioned. Something jammed edgewise into the hole. A local came over as I was digging, said he's there regularly and it's been visible for a few years. We agreed it would be nice if someone lifted it out and replanted it in the bank ..

Thanks to Me and My Mum for spotting this one. Walked from Fratton Station to the seafront then along the road, where the fencing ends on your right the pillar lays toppled just under the bank close to some other pieces of concrete. Has it lain hidden since 1945?

Supposed to be a trig free weekend. However saw at 7.30 this morning about it's reappearance, so made the 2 hr journey here. Hopefully avoided the speed camera on way up else this could prove to be a very expensive bag. Lovely to see it though.

Toppled on a tidal slope. Head down towards the estuary. Top fully buried in shingle. Hand dug out the shingle to reveal centre cap missing. Reburied for now, needs spade and trowel to fully dig out. Below the top layer the shingle was well consolidated so trig has not moved position recently. I suspect a heavy tide may re-cover this trig in shingle.

Previously visited this back in January 2016 and like everyone else logged it as destroyed. Thanks to the action of the sea over the last few years it has now been uncovered lying on the shore very close to its original position!

Nice spot. Had a pepsi and a hotdog (shared with aforementioned starlings) in true grockle fashion, so that's what the score is for!

Certainly nothing here, looks to of been in the corner near the boat yard, or possible just inside? lots of concrete around, nothing trig looking. great views today.

OS records destroyed October 1945, yet such is the lure of trigging that here I am 70 years later visiting the spot where it once stood! It is a pleasant spot on a sunny day though; lovely views across the entrance of Langstone Harbour to Hayling Island; an ideal lunch stop and some bold starlings to share it with. But no sign of any trig remains. Was it sea action that took it? OS archive will probably record the reason for its demise.
