Cebtre; Flagstaff seems to have a vane on top and no flag but I guess it's the mark. Bolt not investigated

Quick run up the hill whilst waiting to board the Scillonian III. St Mary's Church, rebuilt 1834, Grade II* listed. OS records 3 elements for this station: Bolt is unknown; Centre is... the centre(?); and Flagstaff is present. OS also lists 2 benchmarks for this church, a cut and a bolt, only the cut mark found.

Staying at the Chiverton Farm Campsite at Rosudgeon and came to Mousehole to walk back along the Coastal Path to Penzance. We saw the Church and took the attached Photo. The Flagstaff is in good condition.
