Just another lost soul swimming in a fishbowl due to coastal erosion.

Impressive coastline, rapidly falling into the sea. Did not check the grid ref provided by Peregrinus June 2007

Tunstall pillbox but no pillar at base of cliff

No sign of it in its relocated site. Theres obviously been coastal erosion so it could be under a pile of mud somewhere. It could also be under a pile of large concrete boulders (see photo) that have been placed in 4 or 5 of the most eroded sections.

Under all this stuff?

messed up here by not reading the previous logs correctly and I only visited the original site so nothing new to add, interesting all the same, the road my sav nav wanted me to go down is no longer there.

Tide out - walked along beach from Withernsea. No remains found. Two previous visits - 5 July 1996 when the trig was approx 3ft from the edge and similar 28 Jun 1997.

Gridref: TA 31900 31150   FB Number: Not logged  Condition: Toppled  Score: 6/10

Standing upright at foot of 4m unstable cliff, 180m S of S end of boat yard. Waves were lapping round it so I was content to admire it from above; top of pillar missing. Oddly I couldn't find it Oct 2005 although it's easy enough currently. Grid ref based on my notes and Landranger. 11/5/08: Jon Rouse visited today, in good conditions, with the tide well out, and found no trace of the pillar. It appears the winter storms may have finally wiped it out. I was just in time...

Still on beach where Ianmac indicates but now missing its top and FB. I wanted to come back here as it is one of the locations we talk aobut as a family. When walking the coast my wife dropped me here and spen an hour in the laundrette on the caravan site cleaning up my youngest son who had thrown up in the car on the way from Scarborough - now there's a dedicated wife for you.

It's definitely missing from where it should be! We walked to where it should be and the only thing half way down the cliffs was an old pillbox. Chris (of the HEATHENS) said that she had seen the log which said it was on the beach near some caravans so we had a look at Tunstall but didn't go onto the beach because of the tide - so it could well be still there. We'll have a look when we are in the area again. It's times like this when you wish you'd taken full advantage of the info on this site. If I'd read Iainmac's log I would have looked a bit harder! OS give FB as S2469.

Visited the former site near Monkwith and the last reported position of the toppled column a mile or so down the beach - no trace of it. Maybe should have looked harder.

I visited as near as I dared to this TP's original location because the large cracks in the ground show what will be the next slip of the cliff face. I also looked for the pillar's remains on the beach below where iainmac reports it was relocated, but I couldn't find it.

TP6612 original location My GPS indicated that the TP was about 20m off the cliff.
TP6612 later location There was no sign of the TP below here. It is presumably buried in the sand somewhere.

The Trigonomy group has this one down as moved from 298337 to 318312. 298337 has definitely eroded into the North Sea and I couldn't find it at 318312. Will revisit.

This trig point was very near the edge of the cluff at about TA 3174 3166 - knowing the speed of erosion on the east coast I doubt that it lasted much longer.
