Do you ever wonder what "regular"folk think you're doing? rivet doesnt sit all that proud from the rock its affixed to.

Took a while to spot this one and had to consult several pictures on TP:UK. It's the same side as the Bernsten if this helps anyone!

Found as YOSM 677. Another roadside rivet that revealed itself after careful looking as the block seems to have been damaged by a gang mower.

Rivet in small rocky outcrop W side of road: wasn't sure what to look for but prodding the grass with a toe turned it up in a minute or two. No luck with the Berntsen though.

Found at the second attempt this time armed with photos. I had looked at this stone last time but failed to spot the rivet as I was looking for something bigger. It's looking shinier than the last photo as I think the grass cutter has been over the top.

had not looked properly at the pictures before i went and spent a good 45 minutes looking for the normal rivet and block, was going to log a "could not find" until i saw the pictures and realised i had wasted more time, the stone was in clear view but i never went to look at it as gps was showing further down the lane.

Out for a day at Erddig House, so couldn't resist a visit to this small place of pilgrimage, with three trigs in 50 metres! Found this one easily because the grass had been recently cropped! Fiar S views.

Being in the area I couldn't resist calling in on three different trigs so close together! This was the most difficult to find, it took at least 30 seconds!

Near the route I was on so as three trigs so very together it was too good not to miss. An easy spot as the grass is short.

On side of lane embedded in a piece of rock buried in the verge. Very ad-hoc! Grass recently cut, so find was not too difficult. 30m from Wrexham FBM and Wrexham FBM Aux 1. Roack may be huge, with just top bit showing?
