I walked up after visiting St James church,knowing the OSBM Bolt was never on the Tank but on the concrete track as described on OS database.It was too grassed over at GR I think it is still there it just needs CJO to have a proper dig for it. OS description SD 6750 2938 BOLT NBM BOLT W ANG CONCRETE TK 231.112 3 'N' 1961 - 0.000 (see my log on Bench Mark Database) I disagree with jonglew's added comments to his log since my visit.Unless the tank was made of concrete which seems very unlikely,I therefore think TK means track in this instance not tank..

Parked at end of Paignton Rd. Narrow track between houses. Tank has gone, replaced by a toposcope. Seems from the 1968 1:2k5 map that the trig was also an OS benchmark, confirmed by the OS BM dBase which gives 'NBM BOLT W ANG CONCRETE TK', although OS used the abbreviation 'TK' for both 'track' and 'tank', almost certain that in this instance it was 'tank', as indicated by the mapping. So there is almost ceertainty that the bolt was lost when the tank was removed. CJO can stand down. Nice views though.

Inscription: "The Tank on Revidge, Blackburn, Lancashire: 50000 Gallon Water Tank built here at Hardman's Gap in 1897 by Thomas Frost to store water for the highest houses in Blackburn. For over a century it provided a platform for all to view the panorama from the sea to the Pennines. The tank is gone. The view remains"

The text around the topograph describes a 50,000 gallon tank built in 1897. It stood for over a century but is now gone - probably taking the bolt with it. The plinth is still present and grassed over. Excellent views towards Bowland and the coast.
