Apparently it was thrown in to the sea when they redeveloped the harbour years ago.

Here’s another in Cornwall.
The oldest part of the town is composed of mainly granite buildings clustered around the towering Bodmin Beacon atop a windswept hill to the south of the town. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert, a local town dignitory born in Priory House. It was erected in 1856 in recognition of his service in India. The area around the Beacon was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994 with woodland and traditional hay meadow.

Here’s another on his grave.
