Altitude 10m Very easy to miss these - went over the spot several times without noticing it but got it in the end.

Stood in the howling wind and rain to try and spot this wee rivet. Quickly spotted it on the kerbstone.

Easy spot, just in from end of the kerb on minor road running parallel to A590. Filthy weather.

Called to see it on way back from bagging Cunswick Scar (Wainwright Outlying Fell). Took a bit of time to find as I hadn't got the details from previous trig pointers with me. I parked on the minor road up the Lyth Valley beside Dobsons Garage and crossed the dual carriageway but if you are approaching from the east you can pull in on the access road to Sampool Plain, turn left immediately and it's on your right located on penultimate edging stone.

Access by crossing the very busy road. Rivet about as interesting as usual; i.e not much. Rain returning.

Easy find. Not in the least bit interesting,its a rivet after all! As i was passing on my way to the Western Lake District,i thought it would be a bit rude to just drive past an easy bag.

Only four attempts. Eventually found with aid of OS diagram. Its one metre from end in curb stone. Pink surround gone. Passing traffic noisy.

Cannot get any easier. A rivet in a kerbstone with a bloody great pink arrow pointing at it. Just ahead of the thunderstorm, so a gimme - hills are out right now, so no Arnside Knott today :-( Decided to have a meal at Wilf's and sit the storm out before some evening bagging.

Our first 'non-pillar' trig. What can we say, it was a rivet in the ground?
