Grabbed on a walk round the Orme. Found using previous photographs.

I walked back to this one from Creigiau Cochion before returning to the car park by the tram terminal. A very easy find as it was already exposed, unlike some rivets and surface blocks. Great view south across the Conwy estuary.

Walked over from Great Ormes Head. Thanks to Meirion for this easily found never had to use the macro setting on my camera to get a photo of a trigpoint before. Great views back to Conway in the evening sunshine. Better views than Great Ormes Head.

Rivet in concrete block. I dont normally look for these, but its not far at all from the summit of Great Orme. Path leads straight from the road, not far from the tram station, and its beside the waymarker just as it descends steeply. High score for the great views of Snowdonia.

Meirion gives you all the information (and photos) that you need. Would score a little higher if the weather had been clearer. NCOF!

Recorded as a block in the OS database. The trigpoint is a small rivet in a concrete block. It is located right in front of a wooden waymark post. Some excellent views of Llandudno and Conwy Bay. No height is recorded in the OS database, my GPS gave a height of 190m.
