Visited again this time armed with a Garrett Probe. Found old rusted metal tool and old cans but no Bolt. Suspect this one may have been removed!

Revisited. This time I found 2 witness Rivets at SO05790917 and SO05800916. 5m apart. Did not seem to help as they were not located in the correct alinement to the position of what I assumed to be the correct location. Large flattish rock at apex of high ground. Uncovered more of rock but found nothing.

SO11 T042 Bolt in rock. On high point south of cemetery wall. These 19th and early 20th century quarries are associated with the Dowlais & Ivor Ironworks. Found only a witness rivet.
