Remains (of structure not bolt), I scraped concrete in immediate vicinity of GR but bolt was presumably on roof of observation post, OS say destroyed 12/77.

OS records both Bolt and Centre destroyed December 1977 although a fair bit of concrete in a recognizable form exists. I hunted around for my own satisfaction, but all very overgrown - nothing expected and nothing found.

Some concrete here but no bolt. Would guess that 'Bop' was 'Battery Observation Point' and that this was a replacement for TA43/4. Continued to Spurn Head; surprising how close the ferries get in passing.
