Cycled from Watchet, as others have reported probably destroyed when steps were rebuilt.

The steps looked new in 2005 at time of the first log here, and they still look pretty good. But still no sign of the bolt.

Stopped by on a dull and damp day. Sea didn't look very inviting.

Somerset. It was an overcast day with the sea looking churned up albeit calm.

On the way to Devon for a few days. Called in here just for the sake of completion. As has been said - definitely gone. RIP.

Visit this area for a walk on the beach and a ride on the steam train. Had a good look around but no sign of the bolt - but worth coming for the walk and nearby secenary.

Was walking a series of caches based on Pill Boxes along the sea front, so wasn't that disappointed. It's only a stud anyway.

I suspect this one has gone the same way as TP0282. The OS sketch quite clearly puts the bolt on one of the top two steps, but I could see absolutely no sign of it when I visited. The steps look very new, which makes me wonder if the local council have rebuilt them and removed the bolt in the process. However, I'm not 100% sure it's gone. I would appreciate it if someone else could visit this one and confirm that it is missing. Until then I'm logging it as possibly missing. I'm afraid there aren't any other trigs within 100 yards (unlike TP0282), but there is plenty of space to park beside the promenade, and a beach, albeit a stony one.

Steps The bolt should be on one of the top two steps
