A short distance N of lost pillar. Didn't spot the stud discovered by Jonglew. Dug for an hour but no signs. Still a substantial area of west side of bunker roof covered so still possible to find something. Total self isolation, not a soul in sight throughout visit

Managed to find this just in the dunes just above the beach, 100 yards west of the wreck on the beach. Buried with only the roof visible after big storms

jonglew's object at S edge most likely a witness mark as wouldn't be possible to set up an instrument over it.

Spent 2 hours removing accumulated sand, soil and vegetation form the roof of this pillbox. The task is not complete, I estimate a further hour+ to complete the job. However, after a very short space of time a rivet was located 6cm in from the S egde of the roof (2.1m from E edge), but as this was not a bolt continued to dig until I wore down the patience of Mrs G and nephew Andrew! I throw down the challenge for the next visitor to complete the task to determine whether the rivet found is indeed the bolt, or if a more genuine bolt can be found! In the meantime I will log this as 'Good', with the 'bolt' having been found.

Pillbox buried in the dunes. Part of roof clear of sand and vegetation. Therefore I think the Bolt will be in condition. Hope to return and clear the roof area and confirm.
