Walked over from Axe Edge – a lovely day, warm, blue sky and no wind. My parents used to have a caravan in the 60s somewhere round here that they came to at weekends in the summer – everything seems to have been smartened up since then and I can’t remember the tower. The tower was surrounded by a school party who were taking turns to climb the top so I had to wait about twenty minutes before I could view the bolt. Continued onto the active station Buxton.

Such fun. Been to this fab tower a few times. Never noticed the bolt until now. New route too, up from the south through a very boggy/smelly farmyard. (Descended due south and hit the blinding sun again.)

Well polished brass Bolt set into upper floor of Grin Low Tower (aka Solomon's Temple). 3 Rivet witness marks in battlements around tower, plus holes indicating prior locations of 2 more. Bolt is OS tertiary Triangulation Station SK39/T08 (Grinlow Twr); location according to OS database is SK 05398 71744. Also remains of lead plug (?), set into ground floor (not directly below the Bolt) marked by cross cuts. Excellent views all round, but very windy up here today!

Bolt on floor at top of tower. Three rivets located on parapet - assume that these are 'witness marks' to recover the position of the bolt in the event of damage. Nice views over Buxton.

Nice big brass bolt. I was here on a very wet day during a long weekend in Derbyshire. Solomon's Temple is an interesting folly, it was smaller than I had anticipated having seen photographs before my visit. Apparently it was a place people used to walk to from Buxton having taken the health giving spa waters.
