Well, what can I say? 3 rivets found: one on the summit rock - it was slightly obscured by the cairn, which I dismantled looking for a bolt and re-built to one side leaving the rivet clear; the other 2 found on nearby rocks to the south paced out at 5m and 9m. OS describe this as a Bolt, but it's been changed on T:UK to Rivet, so perhaps it is a rivet, perhaps it's the rivet on the summit rock. That's where my money is.

Up from caravan site path easy to lose and theres a big wall to climb twice! Two rivets found could be a buried block somewhere fine views. This was a wainwright outlying top Newton fell summit,done after the lambrigg fell close to the M6.

Well I found the two Witness Rivets but found no Bolt. I'm sure it must be here somewhere. Rivets 21ft apart.

Rivet in rock on which sits the cairn. However, there is a SECOND rivet in another rock a few metres closer to the wall. Didn't have time to get a GR for that one though.

Saskills Rivet by cairn, GR taken for this one.
Saskills SECOND rivet in nearby rock - but which is the correct one?!
Saskills Rock by cairn and rock on right both have rivets.

approached up hill from south-west on footpath through caravan site. By a cairn, nice views over reservoirs, with Old Man in the mist. Noise from the busy road below the hill very audible.

I agree with dal the small rivet being the only visible evidence of this being a trig,

OS name Saskills. Station number T046 in Secondary Block SD47. Listed as a Bolt - I found a slightly damaged rivet on the NW side of the cairn. I couldn't see a Bolt, although it could be hiding under the cairn. It is not unknown for bolts and rivets to be mixed up. So on balance I think the rivet is the mark, and I have marked it as Slightly damaged. When the convention changed from marking all trig marks to just pillars on 1:25k maps, clearly they overlooked removing this one. Sodden walk through thick bracken from the reservoirs. Sorry - no photo, I left my camera behind. Grid ref above is from the OS.

The OS map shows ther to be a trig point at this location. Wainwright's Outlying Fells book, page 55, shows trig point no column. The location has a cairn of stones on a rock outcrop. Views from here are lovely.

Parked just off the main road outside a caravan park once through the park easy route upto a wall, which the top is wrong side so needs negotiating, OS map shows a trig point but all I could find is a small rivit in the rock near the cairned summit
