Easy to find on kerbstone near South end of layby (especially with the sketch & photo from the OS website). The layby was full of cars as the local residents were all at home on New Years Day.

Very close to lampost 85!!This looks like a slightly raised rivet.Area covered in snow so unable to tell if this is actually the bolt or not.

This is a rivet in a kerb stone, recorded in the OS Passive Station database as C1SD8626. They refer to it as a bolt but, within my limited knowledge of these things, it looks to be too small for that (I'm assuming that the rivet is the station itself and not a marker for a buried item). A sketch and photo are available in the OS database. Easily found roadside location above Bacup; could be included in a visit to the pillar on Thieveley Pike.
