Found rivet after a bit of a search under some grass at the edge of the concrete it sits on. Had a spot of lunch on location whilst enjoying the view from here.

Visited in a walk around the edge of Bryher. The trig point is a small rivet in a stone block, set at roughly ground level, and now partly covered by the surrounding turf. It's easy enough to find using the OS location sketch. However, I couldn't find the associated rivets shown on the OS location sketch, used for benching in the trig point. The previous report (Trigger happy, May 2008) refers to storage tanks on the site, implying the trig point was destroyed by the tanks' construction. However, the trig point is located between these water tanks and the 'monument' on Watch Hill (a odd breeze block structure, perhaps a day mark for navigation). In good condition.
