Easy find but watch where you park!! There are some very large lorries around on this piece of road.

After the rubbish had been cleared away.
The road junction is easy to find, so is the FBM.

Lovely walk up to this Trig. Wonder what the second pillar (circular) one is for about 100m away? It's got a spider in the top as well.

Did the math and the measurements but lots of loose earth has been piled up and vegetation has grown all over it. Only had a tape and GPS, next time I'll bring a petrol strimmer and spade!!

Somewhere in there!!

Finally found it. At the back of the BT manhole cover. 20p coin marks it on the photos. The ants were not too amused about the grass being cleared away!! Had to snatch the 20p coin back very quickly. Easy way to find the BT cover is to stand exactly opposite the big road sign. The Detchant/Middleton arrow on the sign actually points to where the rivet is.

The rivet and 20p coin.
Follow the arrow.......
