Spent 10 minutes trying to find this one whilst visiting the Common to do a geo-cache. Both found fortunately..... cache was the easier one of the 2. This was my first rivet so didn't realise just how small these things can be.....the eyes ain't what they used to be.

Probably the bizarrest approach to this rivet that there will ever be ! Didn't have a map, just GPS coordinate to follow. Couldn't find my way up to country park via conventional routes, so ended up taking a direct line from lower road along what initially looked like a path but quickly disappeared. Ended up climbing a cliff face 20 m high - nearly bottled it and went back - all for a rivet ! The most scenic one that I've found so far though ....

A surprisingly good viewpoint for my sole visit today, I thought Rivets were meant to be in boring locations

Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 8m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in decimal degrees (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N51.60213, W03.32747, 122m. Output E 308159, N 190089, 70m hence ST0815990089.

Not bad for a rivet! In a park close to a Gorsedd Circle. Its embedded in a rock near a bench so no digging required for once. I couldn't get the family excited by it though!
