quarter inch rivet on SE corner of double telecom cover e side of road. Heading N, easiest to park in field access 100m N and walk back, ignoring first triple cover. A19 busy even on a drizzly early sat am

Got a bus out from the city centre (how ironic, from a bus driver..) to add a wee rivet to the collection. Walking over to Towthorpe next then make my way back to town.

BT manhole cover slowly being consumed by vegetation. Very unimpressive even for a rivet.

Not the best of the day! Constant traffic on the A19 makes this not a quality experience. There is a lay by about 200m south of the manhole cover. The cover itself is on the east side of the A19, gets a 2 cause it wasn't raining.

Easy once you find the manhole covers!

Log #54. (14m). #30 or 31 bus from Station Ave, York. Logged on 12.3km walk from Skelton to Towthorpe. Beautiful day, heavy traffic along A19. This trig at manhole covers to E of A19 & N of New Farm. Difficult walking to this with proximity to busy road noise, but if visiting by car, there is a lay-by just S of New Farm on E side of road. Nothing worthwhile here - no views, only a rivet that you need to remove turf growth to get at.

Rivet positioned in the corner of two manhole covers next to the busy A19 road into York. We were able to park in a layby about 200 metres away.

Rivet concreted next to a double BT cable access point at the side of the road, relatively easy to find. The A19 is an extremely busy road so take a bit of care when bagging this trig.

Last of light lost to a 10 minute wait at temporary traffic lights so without sketch drew a blank

Corner of surround to BT cover, E side of A19. Easily found but not terribly interesting.

I was staying at the nearby Ramada Jarvis hotel, so I took the opportunity to log this one - before breakfast! An uninteresting verge location on the busy A19.

The cable chamber Flash needed in the early morning half-light.
The rivet Located near the SE corner of the chamber.
