17/11/2011 - Posts and fencing seem to have been altered since earlier photos. Lots of dog mess about. Found a number of rocks without rivet. Measurements and sketch did not help. Returned this morning and found with CJO's help.

Took too long to find. It is located between two fence posts, up hill from the one that marks the bend in the fence. Its immediately opposite the red road sign on the opposite side of the road. Was covered in grass cuttings which confused us for a while since there are many exposed "small"-ish rocks adjacent to the fence.

Very easy to find now, just behind the fence, bit of concrete with rivet, really clear at the mo.

I was a bit pessimistic after seeing the two previous logs, but it is still there. Just takes a bit of rummaging around :).

A cold and misty day. Some views over the sand dunes but the place was deserted and all the local tourist places closed. Found the rivet with no trouble, thanks to the OS photo.

Brass rivet in a very small bit of outcropping rock at the end of the access road to Frith Beach near Presatyn. As usual, very underwhelming feature. So small that no one ever notices it, so it never gets disturbed. The tacky amusement arcades were still there, as I remember them for 50 years ago!!

Did this whilst attending the nearby event. Nearly missed it if it was not for others there.

First time I tried to find this last year, I was looking for something bigger which I now know to be a bolt. Easy when I knew what it is!

Isn't it small

Walked past it the first time (I got called back). This is a very small Rivet. Not covered at the mo so reasonably easy to spot. Cheers Tony

Bagged on the way back from the Welsh geocaching meet. A bit of a detour but I like the seaside!! Rivet not covered by anything so easy to spot right on the sea shore!

FOUND THE STUD QUICKLY, THE GRASS HAD BEEN CLEARED AWAY BY SURVEYORS WORKING IN THE AREA.

The Rivet is there honest! The tip of the geostick is resting on the rivet.
