Cheeky little rivet on the concrete support for the canal bridge. Lots of maintenance work going on so area cordoned off.

The rivet isn't much to see, but the area itself is interesting with a canal and a bridge.

Virtually invisible against the background. Historic canal looks good for cycling along.

very small. Swing bridge was closed to allow passgae of boats. This gave enough time to find the rivet, on concrete slab.

Tricksie little blighter to spot with no guide as to where it is, but spotted it in the end we did. OS sketch is available, but this was an unplanned stop. Approx 1m from railings and .8m from wall.

Very hard to spot the wee thing but we found it in the end - probably due to the fact Gerry had uncovered it and described where it was!

Have you ever hunted for a rivet in the snow. Pretty difficult but got there in the end. Phew.

I thought at first that this point was somewhere in the well manicured grass alongside the lock, and I didn't dare do any excavation and started to leave. On checking the diagram I realised it was in the concrete above the steps.

TP0039 My GPS marks the spot.
