(1662) A 3 for the price of 1 bag. Cheeky parking (permit required) down Grosvenor Avenue. Soon reached the tower's location, though the ground was boggy today. Tower viewed through the compounds fencing. Bolt inaccessible.

Water tower is extant with an array of telecoms masts sprouting from everywhere. Access to bolt not sought.

The OS trig marks database lists the bolt with a height of 103 metres whilst the Landranger map gives a nearby spot height of 83 metres. So would assume the bolt was placed on the tower roof. Comparison of the coordinates of cupola and bolt indicate that the latter was on the E side. No way of knowing if its still there.
