The 0930 tower tour, now GBP16.50. 1" bolt on apex of lead roof, visible R of CCTV camera (keeping stairs on your R). Deep datum point (54.49ft) is on nave floor near west (main entrance) end, big and easily spotted. Maybe return later for guided tour when rain starts

Expensive this one £16.50, didn't like the last set of stairs either, very close and personal! Not easy to spot this either, a bit of a leap of faith.

(847) No time to do the tour today, alas. But already thinking of returning to York soon, to fully explore the city centre. Nice to know, thanks to previous loggers, that the bolt is accessible.

Takes a trained eye to spot this one; even with photos as a guide it took me a while to be convinced I could actually see it.

275 steps to reach the top of the tower. The bolt is easy to see next to the CCTV camera. I was the only person taking photographs of the roof, everyone else was photographing the views.

Fantastic building, didn't go inside as was more interested in the cut mark and bolt at ground level in the south west corner facing High Petergate and the flush bracket '2423' on house wall opposite the west entrance.

£15 for a 1" bolt - good job the Bagging Assistant paid for both of us. The minster is impressive. We timed our visit perfectly for the start of a tour. The bolt is on the apex of the lead flashed roof. Looks little more than a smudge to the right of the CCTV camera. Can see many of the York trigs from here. If you want to see the bolt at any impressive size, bring your binoculars. Also at this station are a CENTRE and LIGHTNING CONDUCTOR, the latter destroyed 08/81. Go to Durham Cathredral to see a bigger and more impressive bolt - similar number of steps though, but a whole lot cheaper!

Bolt visable to the right of the cameras on the center span, (keep the entrance stairs to your right). Have to say i missed it and my friend spotted it! Stunning views on one of the best days of the summer. Datum in the west end easy to find.

The bolt should be in the centre of the tower roof but I didn’t see it through the mesh. Having not read the previous logs and not realising it was a current passive station I did not expect the bolt to still be in situ so did not request access to the centre of the roof. The top of the tower was reached by way of 268 steps in a couple of spiral stairways within the walls of this magnificent building. Despite wet and miserable weather the roof top gives views worthy of a primary station across the city and nearby countryside

Woman at top didn't know anything about a trig point, but pulled out an OS map which didn't show up anything.I guess the OS only use the trig point symbol when there is the physical presence of a column.

Couldn't get to see the bolt however this doesn't distract from the stunning views around York. I heard a rumour that the City Council do not allow any buildings to be higher than the Minster (They refuse planning permission) so it remains the highest and most visible point. York lies in a vale and is very flat for miles around.

On the OS PSD as a bolt (T1SE6052). On the lead roof of the Great Tower; £3 to take the stairs up the tower. The top has a covered walkway round the perimeter but I explained what I was looking for and, probably as it was a quiet day, the woman opened a locked gate allowing access to the centre of the roof.
