YSM118 Swanbridge D2 T1. A nice wee rivet on the wall. Not easy to spot at first, the OS sketch definitely helped. Put on our new high visability vests for this one. Then took a walk over to the island to bag the earthcache. A lovely spot for a YOSM. Mr U2 left me lying on the wall whilst he pretending to take a photograph and then he went and hid behind the car!

#333 P#244 P2016#44. The diagram we brought certainly helped to spot this wee rivet. Doned the hi viz for this one. A lovely spot. Took some time to visit the island and do the earthcache.

This took an age to find as we did not have the coordinates to begin with. Once we had them even though it was dark no issues here. Also logged as a YOSM.

Revisit on the way for a festive lunch with friends at the pub, nice walk around the coast from Penarth.

Parked (and had a couple of pints) at the very nice pub to the west. Nice views over the Severn, with Sully island (which is a SSSI), flat holme and steep holme visible too.

Took a while to find as this is roughly the same texture as this rivet is about the same texture and size as the surrounding concrete!

The trigpointing equivalent of a micro geocache. It inspires me about the same amount, but I was here on a trip to Sully Island, which was fun.

The rivet blends in with the top of the sea wall, especially when it is wet - as it was on our visit.

Swanbridge Trig Point (rivet) The rivet is just above the GPS and slightly larger than the yellow spot on the top of the GPS.©write and mane
Swanbridge Trig Point (rivet) in profile The rivet is about a quarter of the GPS length to the left of the GPS. Sully Island is in the background.©write and mane

Ditto previous comments from Father Ted and Rhayader_wanderer. Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 8m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in DMS (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N 51o2359.3, W 3o1147.4, 9m. Output E 316862, N 167432, -42m hence ST1686267432. Curiously, altitude recorded by me is way off the reported height by the OS website.

On the sea wall and easy to overlook. GR is close to spot on

Poshandbecks got close but not quite. The rivet is on top of the actual sea wall. I only know this because I used the OS diagram and picture. A mile down a country lane to the seafront overlooking Sully Island. I walked past here on my England & Wales coastal walk many years ago it was good to come back.
