Church of the Holy Trinity, Grade I listed, 14th and 15thC. OS lists Bolt, Flagstaff and Vane as components - latter 2 present and correct on tower roof; no access to search for the Bolt. Nice 1GL Bolt and inverted CBM lower down on tower's W face. Nice to see the RAF Ensign flying from the tower roof.

On an amble around Skipton. Tower vane still intact, BMs still visible but FB 1466 now has a broadband box hiding it from sight.

Holy Trinity. Two bench marks with bolts on SW corner of tower, both have inverted arrows and one is quite faded with a lead bolt. FB 1466 on perimeter wall. Magnificent vane.

Skipton Church Tower Vane Vane and Flagstaff both visible trigmarks. The bolt is inaccessible.

Here bagging the nearby Flush Bracket (1466). Also found the unusual bolt on the tower wall. Lovely old church situated at the top of the High Street.

Station SD96/T068, consisting of flagstaff, vane and bolt, all with slightly different OSGB36 references. These were all computed to 3rd order in 1986. I have opted for the vane in this record as this is clearer than the flagstaff in my picture. I visited the church to log the 1GL bolt on the west face of the tower, not to be confused with the bolt possibly still extant somewhere on the top of the tower.

Skipton church from The Bailey Vane and flagstaff are visible. Flush bracket 1466 is on the wall beside the left-hand post.
