Army Reserve Centre and HQ 7th Military Intelligence Battalion. OS records the Bolt destroyed October 1953, possibly after building had a new roof. It would have been located on the highest part of the building, shown in centre of my photo, most likely a water tower. There is a cut benchmark on the S face of the building.

A comparison of building footprint on the Old Maps 1952 1:1250 map, which shows the trig point, and Google satellite view shows that the current building is the one that carried the bolt in a position at the north-east corner of an elevated section visible from the ground. The OS records it as destroyed, possibly indicating the roof has been resurfaced or wall coping stones replaced.

Ground view
Location close-up Old Maps indicates the bolt was on or close to the nearest angle of this elevated section.

Building is possibly still on the location. Probably old enough?
