I have logged it as inaccessible as if it exists it is under the newly tarmacced surface.

The site has now been developed as the Harbour Arm and is attractive and worth a visit (although the old harbour station and railway remain an eyesore) , access to lighthouse and bolt location on Friday evenings and all day at weekends. We must assume that the bolt is still in place, buried under the new tarmac surface which is now the seating area of the lighthouse cafe and bar.

Re-visited on a very cold, bright morning. Tide was in and spectacular rolling waves were crashing against the tunnels at (completely submerged) Sunny Sands. We had the pier to ourselves - no anglers today. My GPS, showing an accuracy of 4 metres indicated that both the bolt and the lighthouse should lie at some point slightly south of where the centre of the lighthouse actually is. The upper deck of the lighthouse - level with the pier walkway, has been recently (2011?) resurfaced. There is a slight hump in the bitumen which may conceal the elusive bolt. I am still undecided, the one on the lower level within the yellow triangle looks quite convincing to me.

Griefmiester is correct in assuming this one is (technically) inaccessible - the end of the pier has a locked gate and the lower access, via the old rail track, has one too. Fortunately, one of the Harbour officials cycled up as we arrived on site and opened the gate for us, he was aware of the bolt on the lower level but didn't know much about it. The bolt in question has been marked with a yellow triangle and bears the legend FLH which I presume stands for Folkestone Light House ?

Wasn't sure how to log this one - this is on the end of a deserted pier (see log for lighthouse) the end section is fenced off, so technically it is "inaccessible", however the Bolt is visible a few feet from the base of the lighthouse with a yellow triangle around it - what do you think?
