Found it after a bit of screwdriver prodding with the help of previous photos. Only a couple of cms down. The first of the triplet.

Evidently buried again. Was looking for a way up the nearby summit, but seeing 3 trig symbols on the GPS (I'd already been to the FBM) I thought I'd have a look. Got the rivet OK but no sign of this; lacked the motivation to get the trowel out of the car - well it's only a bertnsen :-)

Not an easy one to find and would need some digging, couldn't feel it under the surface and didn't have a trowel.

Found with the aid of the photograph as it was completely covered. Just wish I had printed off more photos for the rivet and read previous logs more carefully.

The second of the three, this one found after searching through the grass cuttings! Right by the side of a busy road with a blind summit.

Being in the area I couldn't resist calling in on three different trigs so close together!

Near the route I was on so as three trigs so very together it was too good not to miss. Grass still short, screw missing, but someone has tried to rescrew using their own.

Bernsten, buried in verge on roadside, just in front of the Gwynfryn road sign. The old Wrexham FBM is across the other side of the main road, and the Gwynfryn bolt is a bit further down the lane. They'd cut the grass, so not much digging required
