I've looked for this trig point on several occasions, but had not logged it as I hadn't used a GPS to check the exact location. On this occasion I used the OS Maps app on my phone to get to approximately the right location on Shipman Head Down, about halfway between a prominent entrance grave ('chambered cairn' on the OS 1:25 000) and the high point of the down (42 m spot height). There was no obvious rock of sufficient size for a bolt, so I'm happy to accept the OS 'destroyed' indication.

Obvious triangle of rocks in heathland would seem good spot for a bolt in block but hard gritty ground not good for probing, metal detector app inconclusive. Token effort only. Lovely sunny day.

Had a look around for 10 minutes with RHW on a lovely summers day.

OS records this as destroyed May 1974. Spent no time searching for it as there are no rocks of any description now above ground level. Next!
