A lovely location but tricky to find as set lower than average in the ground.

From the passing place on the road its 30 yards from the fence and slightly over towards the left. Good views over the harbour and the town beyond. From above almost buried in the grass - only the top is visible, from below much more can be seen.

Easy to find with ianmac's picture showing the light on the breakwater and the warning keep out sign. Well proud of the grass in my visit.

Possibly missing or buried. No sign of the white marker pole anymore. Co-ordinates take you to a piece of bare ground in front of the the locked gates to the pier.
