Large water tower, once dominated the landscape before the urban sprawl of Broadstairs and Ramgate surrounded it. OS lists 2 components: Bolt - not investgated; and Flagstaff - not seen, presume destroyed.

Large water tower. Some telecom gear but no flagstaff.

Easy drive by of watertower but no chance of checking on the bolt without a parachute. Need to put the condition as probably there but unreachable

The photo doesnt do it justice, the water tower is massive. Google earth shows the bolt on top of the tower ;-)

Found the water tower no problem - the OS site suggests bolt to be on the top of the tower, think this is a non-starter, unless you work for the Water board.
