I can remember looking for this one back in the 80ies when i Live on the top floor of QEQM. I was the loudest Radio Am in Portsmouth at the time. Even though I only had 2w of power. So for old time sake I tried to find it. But its def gone. Only a bin to mark where it use to be. A lot of around here has changed since i lived here! Just wish I had some John Foxx to listen to while cycling around here.

Bike where trig should be. QEQM tower in background.

Thought we would stop and take a picture before the area changes again, as the quay is due for demolition in summer 2016 as part of the same coastal defence works that led to the destruction of TP0793 Aerodrome in July/August 2015.

OS records destroyed December 1964 - sea action at a guess from its location. It's spot is at landward end of Great Salterns Quay; concreteed over and now used as a parking area for twitchers and lovers by the seems of it.

All I could find is a conc base 10m W of road, S side of sluice, which may or may not relate to trig. FB was S1715 (OS). I made a point of visiting, as it's on the Low Trigs England list (by county) - one of the more obscure lists which has come into my hands. I've just one more to visit for compleation …

This pillar was probably destroyed when the pier was constructed for the Gravel Dregging Company,early 1960's, possibly being redundant and in the way! The Gravel Company was relocated when the creek was reclaimed, using waste abd materials from the redevelopment of Portsmouth. The original site of the Company's dock was probably in the area now covered by Moorings Way School. On some OS Maps a trigpoint is shown on the Eastern Road/Great Salterns Campsite, which is now diused and non-operational, in the vicinity of SU 675 021

I can't work out why this pillar was removed. It was not in the way of any thing (see photo) - just vandalism!

Why was it knocked down?
