Did not investigate bolt, but found benchmark and curious inverted sundial (probably a re-build with stone inverted when re-used).

Flagstaff with flag flying and vane on top. Bolt not investigated.

Vane on flagstaff with flag flying Poor photo (Brisey's is better) but first time I've seen a flag-flagstaff-vane combination. So a FS can have a vane (they often have) and still be a working FS.

I photographed the flagpole and church tower whilst visiting to log the benchmark on the NE angle of the church.

Snape church tower The flag staff is just visible with a limp St George's Cross flag.
Flagstaff Showing the flag was rather tatty.
