    Hot at the bottom, cold at the top, has to be air, but cannot find the valve, any ideas?

    Are the caps at the top just plastic and pushed over the top of the bleed nipple for decorative purposes.

    Thanks for the feedback. The number of queries that get answered only to never hear back from the OP is quite disappointing. Hope it cures the symptoms....

    You will find that you need to bleed it slowly until water seeps out. Then wait 30 minutes or so and repeat, then repeat again. I have a similar towel rail and have found that the best way - with a few taps to get stuck air moving.

    only once did the trick, it's as hot at the top as at the bottom

    That's sounds remarkably like Mrs Eckerslike!

    My wife has the coldest feet I've ever encountered, luckily she didn't have cold feet when she said YES

    I was intrigued to see your upside down TRV. I assume it works, but haven't ever seen one before.
