There's not a lot to say about a rivet, except that it's still there, and in apparent good condition!

Search quite hard for this but couldn't find it - pesky thing! Will re-visit again over the next week now I've looked at the photos on this site a little closer. Returned today, 3 Mar, and found the rivet easily enough.

New signs have gone up near the rivet. The entrance is nice and wide with plenty of room to park. Good views across the valley.

Easily found within a painted triangle on the concrete approach to the driveway of the Barbury Castle Estate. Large fields of rolling downland pasture are to the north and east; a line of blossom laden trees head along the path toward Rockley Down in the southwest.

Our very first rivet! Took a little while to spot, but mainly due to the co-ords being about 65 feet out. Took new readings using a Magellan Meridian and a Garmin 60cs (Which agreed for once :D)

This was our first rivet! The location of this one made it quite easy to find, although we didn't expect it to be so small, the views from the location are great on a clear day.

Driving rain and darkness beat me, even the halogen from my bike couldn't locate what should be an easy find.
