By repaired wall, next to lay-by. Agree with Ted, but we also had a look at the exposed bedrock to the north of the wall and there is nothing rivet-like on those either.

My GPS today favoured the (N) verge, 10m E of gate. Prodding found a few stones, nothing worth digging for. Much prefer Barbrook.

Verge between the 2 cars so my GPSr reckoned - not that I found it

Agreed nothing apparent here - without more accurate information i suggest this would be a challange to find.

The co-ordinates actually point to a large rock on the moorland just behind the wall by the layby. I parked in the layby and walked through the gate onto the wet moorland behind the wall and had a look at the rock which has lots of craters but no rivet. I had a cursory look at the wall and the long grass on the layby side of it as well but found nothing. I agree with ted and feel it is likely to have been destroyed and replaced by Barbrook (TP0195) 578 metres away.

Got out of the car and had a bit of a look around even though I wasn't expecting to find anything.

Owler Bar is listed as a rivet in the OS Passive Station database with station id C1SK2877. There is no sketch or photo. The coordinates point to a location on the N side of the B6054, a little over 500 metres SE from the Barbrook surface block (C1SK2778). Both locations correspond to a grassy verge between a layby and drystone wall. Spent a while probing the rubbish-strewn site but nothing found and no roadside markers evident. Owler Bar was last visited by the OS in 1997 whilst the record for Barbrook dates from 1999. Given the proximity, it therefore seems possible that the Owler Bar rivet was destroyed with Barbrook replacing it.
