Long gone but great walk from Seawick to Lee-over Sands then former trig location then back to bag the SIB Colne Bar.

OS record this destroyed 1955, which fits in neatly with the sea defence construction of 1954. However, the nearby Bolt on a pillbox was computed 1960 and that's also gone. Odd timings for that one.

No trace - presumably buried under the sea wall/bank. OS archive says theres a Bolt nearby - couldnt find this either.

1st of the day.Walked along the sea wall from Seawick/St Oysth Beach (this came as a bit of a surprise the place was heaving -- I was expecting a quiet seaside hamlet). Trig is definitely missing,probably when the sea wall was heightened/strengthened.There is a disused coastguard station inside the sea wall at Lee-0ver-Sands,its only view would be the sky!The two replacements are on raised foundations outside the sea wall. The OS database shows the trig as 'Destroyed 06/55'. Trig is still shown on my 1 inch Sheet 150 B Fully revised 1967. Obviously things moved more slowly in those days.
