Bolt is buried deep in bramble bushes and I didnít have the tools to cut my way through. Will have to return in the winter when the vegetation has died down.

TP0437 Bolt is located 4 m from the road edge.

Wide, very rough and brambly roadside verge. 1" bolt several inches down; found quite easily once realized a previous visitor had left an old car window frame over it (or was this by chance as no mention on T:UK?), which I replaced, also leaving the block uncovered. Measured it at 4.2m from roadside - almost, but not quite, in line with the 2 gully grates on either side of the road; and now 4.35m from the leaning fence.

1" bolt in block, 6" down in soft brambly verge. Very nearly in line with the two road gullies, not in line with fence post which still has its pine nail. OS sketch still good ie 4.2m from road edge and 3.7 from fence post with nail. Nearly didn't bother given time of year and previous logs but found quite quickly once alignment understood

1" bolt
view in line with bolt. Blue screwdriver marks centreline of nearer road gully
trig location spade marks the trig; fence post behind, gully in front
pipe nail in fence post

Had the sketch with me together with the trusty trowel. However, the almost total lack of rain for 10 weeks in this area had made the verge rock hard and the vegetation was up to my knees and so, although I made one or two attempts to penetrate the soil where I thought it should be, I didn't have any luck. Needs to be visited when the verge is soft and preferably after the grass cutters have been!

Slightly half hearted attempt - my first to find one of these - with the Junior Cipollini's while Mrs C put her feet up on Mothers Day. We were in the right area - the sketch is straightforward - but even at this time of the year the verge was covered in brambles and we didn't have the right tools (a plastic beach spade only !), and didn't realise it was so buried - as per the previous log. Revisited Jury's Gut (TP4140) while we were there, on a lovely sunny morning.

Well buried! I had to dig down about 8 inches to find this one - Take the the OS sketch with you for this one, It's exactly where it says.

Another bolt buried under heavy foliage. Probably best viewed in the winter with the help of a metal detector.
