although we went up to the telescope and could see onto the roofs, we did not gain access to the roof. fantastic views around though. all photos logged at TP14918 (Greenwich Observatory Time Signal Ball Centre)

Museum guide said roof had been re-roofed about 10 yrs ago, but there is still an unusual lead covered box on the roof which appears to be at the GR of the hydrant. Dateline is on the ground and crosses the roof..

Couldn't see the bolt, although there was a long queue to stand astride the Meridian which might have been covering it. Great location

Walked up here to get the panoramic view of the Olympic eventing...and to log the observatory. 'couldn't find it' not really true as I didnt really look...the observatory was open but almost surrounded by port-a-loos...nice!!! I peered throught the railings and eyeballed the meridian line etc...then back to the eventing via the facilities!

Great place, but no idea where the bolt might be.....

Must score high for interest as it is almost on the Meridian line!

The log by Oakwarden refers to the Flush Bracket http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm588 Without a plan or description the BOLT was impossible to find.

Was not there to find the bolt, though it was a big thing for me at the time to stand on the meridian.
