Fair unremarkable location, and a tricky find even with the OS diagram (well, it was for me).

Found whilst driving from Cheshire to Anglesey; my first 'small rivet' find; luckily the area was clear of grass etc. so quickly spotted.

Parked just off the main road in a handy little cut-in then sauntered over to the junction to hopefully locate the rivet. As it turns out it was quite straightforward as the grass was short and the area clear, which I was grateful for on seeing the size of the rivet.

Picked this one up after collecting a nearby cache. In good condition considering the size.

Visiting two trigs and two Geocaches. The rivet was completely covered with soil and grass. Cleared the location and cleaned the rivet, easy to spot now.

An easy to find rivet set into the concrete surround of a manhole cover. Parking available on the minor road either opposite or adjacent to the manhole. Very misty this morning, visibility only a few hundred yards so no views to speak of.

Needed to kick away some grass and mud to expose it again. Moelfre Isaf trig pillar is visible a mile away to the east-southeast in a gap between the trees.

Nice and clear for us today after Phil's recent visit so able to spot this one straight away. Originally found as Maxiboo22 but re-logging to get all trigs under 1 account.

There's a story behind this one. Way back in September 2004, we were on our way home from an event up Snowdon, with a convoy of other cachers from Lancashire. At the time we all had PMR radios to stay in touch on the way home while we cached. We had finished caching and were going home in the dark when our tom tom went off to say there was a trigpoint by the road. After letting the others know, we all made a decision to stop and look for it. However, it was pitch black, and we had no idea what we were looking for. Even a nearby farmer pitched in to help with a torch. Since that day, other cachers from that night have always mentioned it (fondly or otherwise), and we always said we would be back there one day. At the time, we didn't realise the trig was a YOSM, but even then, it wasn't our chief reason for going back there, on our way back from yet another Snowdon event. We needed to get even with this tiny roadside rivet, and lay the ghost of that night finally to rest. To look at it you wouldn't think an object that small could cause so much consternation, but we finally got the bugger.

Took ages to eventually find this one. Kept kicking the ground and after about 10 minutes we got it uncovered. Lots of people driving past giving us a look.

At last I've got here in daylight after 5 of us failed on 18th September last year in the dark. Still needed the trowel but with a precise description of the spot it was easy - it helped now I know how small a rivet can be as I thought I was looking for something the size of a 50p piece.

Came to this one after reading the logs with diagram,tape and trowel but found quickly without.It is under a small amount of moss on a concrete surround of a large manhole cover on its far right hand side corner as you face up the A548 towards Abergele.We also had plenty of daylight which obviously helped.
