(951) Easy enough to find the general location thanks to previous logs, but couldn't find the bolt. Verge well maintained, but the ground was rock hard, and stoney, which gave some false readings, along with breaking my trowel! Will give this another go when back in the area - hopefully after some rain has softened the ground...

1" bolt in centre of large block. Located oak tree next to posts of old road sign then used CJO directions - probed and dug out block - thanks.

Got it at last. Thanks CJO. Just the car boot sale to endure now.

Thanks CJO for the log and photos of my problem bolt. I didn’t have the sketch but realised the importance of the alignment with the tree. I think it was the depth and lack of digging equipment that defeated me (and the queues of traffic going to the market). Will try harder on my next visit.

Sketch spot on. Dimension from tree and road critical. White paint still on block. 10cm deep, 1" bolt. For What's the Point - the key tree is in the background. It features on the inset on the OS sketch as "young tree". And for those sketchless - the key dimensions are: 3.52m from the tree (in the photo), 3.85m from road (tarmac edge) and 1.67m from the hedge (centre line).

After the success of ‘The RockKnocker’ and my previous two unsuccessful attempts to find this bolt I thought I’d have another try. I was expecting the bolt to have been left exposed but I found little evidence of ground disturbance. A limited amount of digging with a small trowel in the likely areas drew a blank. Although the photo of ‘The RockKnocker’ and his Rottweiler is charming, a view of the bolt would have been more useful. The brown Skirkington sign has now disappeared (or gone to the local didie camp) but the posts are still in position. Unfortunately this failure means that I may have to endure another visit to Skirlington car boot sale on my next trip to Bridlington – possibly equipped with a spade but without canine support.

We enjoyed this one, took long screw driver to find concrete and trowel and Rocky the dog for digging.

This is my second attempt at this one. Parked in Skirlington car boot market and headed for the verge carrying the trigpointing spade. This must be the biggest car boot in the country and the road had a stationary line of traffic queuing to enter the site so my digging caused some amusement – a chap in a pickup truck shouted some comment about not finding anything there – I said I was after worms – he was the quite helpful suggesting I tried further along the road where there was some damp ground. I did find worms but no sign of the surface block even though I had copies of the photos from the logs with me. The verge seems to have been disturbed with what appears to be loose tarmac below turf. Good luck if you try to find it – you may need measurement from the sketch map.

Grass in very good condition and well looked after. So only prodded about and dug a few small holes. No luck.

Sits about 15cm under the soil, found only by standing on the shoulders of giants. Thanks TED, Brisey. Had to park on verge near to caravan park entrance which is also the access to TP7130

My Missus by the Bolt Hope this is of some help...happy digging!

Buried in the neatly-maintained verge. Location as per the OS sketch, measuring from the twisted trunk of the young (oak?) tree and from the road edge. Unusual (non-OS) ground marker on same verge opposite depot entrance.

Ground hard and lots of molehills about but at least I was looking in the right place. Previously looking several hundred feet away !

Found it quite easily with the aid of the OS diagram and my long screwdriver. There's a new sign located in the hedge gap shown on the OS diagram inset.

TP0361 location. A bit of excavation was needed, left exposed.

Second attempt to find it and failed again. The verge looks to have been remade, quite soft in places, and theres a newish manhole nearby. May be gone. The fb number is for nearby pillar.
