Looked for this whilst waiting for a boat to St Agnes. Didn't find it straight away due to not knowing exactly what I was looking for. Eventually found it just under a metre from end of the wall on the old quay. Don't blink or you may miss it!

Visited on a trip to St Mary's to pick up this trig point, and the active station at the airport. The trig point is located on the old quay, a spur off the main quay in Hugh Town. It's easy enough to find using the OS location sketch. The trig point is a 'centre' - a punch mark with cross cuts in what I'd guess is the sawn off stub of a mooring ring set in the surface of the quay. In good condition.
