2" bolt set into promenade; white cross on the tarmac is fading but still a good indicator as to its location between the 2 bench seats. Start of a pleasant walk south along the flood defences.

A 40 mm round headed bolt is embedded in the tarmac of the promenade of Severn Beach to the north of Bristol. It was computed by the OS as non pillar trig ST57 T242 in 1967. There is roadside parking next to the bakers in the village. The bolt is high lighted by a fading painted white cross. The site looks across the muddy estuary to Wales. Industry lines part of the opposite shore and Welsh Hills rise up on the skyline. The nearby Second Severn Crossing dominates the view upstream. Downstream the dock cranes and windmills of Avonmouth and the wooded slopes of Battery Point can be seen. The Severn Estuary is a SSSI and the bakers sell a tempting range of cakes and pies as well as some rather tasty home made French bread pizza slices.
