    Theres one near Hunmanby Gap on Sands Lane just south of Filey. Its at the side of the road in front of some cottages. You can see it on google earth and it was still there last summer.
    Cheers Mick.

    Newcastle, county Down has one. It used to be on the central promenade but now its on the south end of the town close to the harbour. It is visible on google earth.

    Thanks everyone for the help so far. I have quite a number of images I managed to find on the net, unfortunately I cant post most of them as the images belong to other people.....but getting the location is great. Even narrowing it down to the harbour area (as Freds post above) is really helpful - sometimes I know a town has one, but finding it is another matter. Google street maps is really helpful, but even better are photos if any of you have them (thanks to Spotter for taking time to photograph the one at Scarborough)
    I know the Filey one very well as I used to go on family holidays there every year - its in pretty good condition and right on the promenade.

    Its also good to hear of any that used to be there, but no longer are. Mablethorpe for example had one for many years, then with a little 'development' it simply 'disappeared'? its funny how you dont notice these things for a while. Old postcards from the 60's and 70's are a good way of finding these (again though a location is very very helpful)

    There is no rush in finding out these, but perhaps if your on holiday and see one, take a snap and upload it onto the thread.

    thanks to all - regards Kev

    There was a red painted RNLI Sea mine at Butlins at Foley, it was located just inside the main entrance next to the camp shop.
    I enquired about it when it closed down and was told it was sold for scrap for around 30.
    I would suppose a few of the other Butlins sites that have closed may have had them.

    According to this site, there are 60 mines dotted around the UK, I would suggest dropping them a line to do the mine challenge, they will then send you a list of all of the sites.
    If you want a recent photograph of the one near the ha'penny pier in Harwich, let know.
