approx 1m from the higher edge of the top. On the other arm of The Cobb, there is another survey bolt near the mast with the lettering 'survey marker' on it.

1 1/2" dia shallow domed bolt set into top of The Cobb, approx 7.5m from end of the wall, 1.2m from N edge. A little bashed about, but otherwise good.

I believe that the bolt shown in Trigger's picture and described as slightly damaged is not the correct one.

Visited on a very sunny day on a family holiday in nearby Charmouth. Found with aid of previous logs. Nice view of Golden Cap.

Visited on walk from Sturminster Newton, Dorset to South Brent, Devon. Found easily due to previous notes. Golden Cap in background. Lyme Regis very animated as it was Lifeboat Week. (My first bolt.)

The bolt was found near the end of the famous harbour wall of Lyme Regis. The 1Ĺ inch diameter bolt has a few minor nicks on its surface but is mostly polished quite smooth and otherwise appears to be in good condition. I couldnít resist looking for it during a day out at the seaside with the family. The trig looks over Lyme Bay to the south. The town is on the hillside to the north with the seafront and harbour below. Golden Cap soars above the Jurassic Coast of West Dorset in the east with the Isle of Portland in the distance to the south east. Some nearby cliffs of the Triassic Coast of East Devon are to the west with some distant peaks of South Devon on the horizon in the south west. The Cobb is a Grade I listed structure and the buildings on it are Grade II listed. The surrounding coastline is a World Heritage Site. The Cobb features in a Jane Austin novel and in the film ďThe French Lieutenantís Woman.Ē

Station T174 in Secondary Block ST11, Listed as a Bolt, Computed 1953. There were quite a few bolt shaped holes, but we came across a slightly bashed but polished Brass Bolt, just over 1m from the north face of The Cobb and about 8m from the end. Cant be absolutely sure it is the Bolt (given the number of holes), but seems an excellent candidate.
