It took a while to find as my GPS was saying the bolt was 23ft away!

A needle in a haystack. A better photo to show the exact location.

Yes, agree with jonglew and asbown, standard hemispherical OS bolt, vgc, also a smaller bolt 4m nearer to top of steps, at edge of drainage channel, slightly damaged and presumably not OS

Have to concur with asbown below, all the other photos for this bolt are not the bolt but of the residue of one of the railing uprights - sorry guys, you've been looking at the wrong thing. The actual bolt is the standard 2" diameter and of the usual bronze-like metal and is approx 2.5m in from the edge of the quay. I paced out each side the 'pseudo bolt' and can confirm there are bolt-like items along the quay-side at regular intervals confirming they are the remains of the old railings. The actual bolt has some oxidation, but imho should be re-classified as 'good'.

a bit of doubt about this one,I'm fairly sure my photo is of the bolt but other photo's show another closeby bolt which I'm not sure is o /s related,good views from both

bolt is slightly corroded in an eroded sandstone block. Located 50cm from edge of pier. the pier edge has been replaced with newer sandstone blocks. UPDATE: see 4 Aug 2013 this log incorrectly describes a metal bracket/bolt/fencestump as the trigmark. The actual mark is 2M from the quayside as has been described by subsequnet visitors

West pier bolt my GPS indicates the reported location of bolt is 1 m to the right. clearly small navigation errors can have big consequences

Noted the corroded bolt when visiting the 1GL Bolt bench marks on the lighthouse (NX 9689 1867) and the one on the Old Quay (NX 9679 1847) .
