By Keith for HCU3A. It's under the paving stone - I've seen it in the past, pre the new set of steps

Some concrete slabs have been placed on top of the rivet took some tools but a first class job has been done so unable to budge them without damage.

At some point since 2016, a set of steps has been built from the motorway to the bridge. The area where the rivet used to be, as far as I can tell, now has a paving slab over it from the set of steps that has been built. Impossible to tell whether the rivet was removed when the steps were built, or whether it is sitting underneath the paving slab

Easy spot on N parapet of M6 bridge. 1/4" rivet set in concrete 1.6m from E end. OS sketch handy but not really needed for this one. Unsure why OS call this a Surface Block.

I had already seen this several years (10?) ago while walking Cheshire's footpaths, I found out about this off the internet while searching local walks.

Took a few mins to spot this as it had become covered, a little trimming and it is now clear, well at least for now.

Rivet on north parapet, 5 ft from east end. Not that easy to spot.

Surface Block located on bridge - not sure how this is accessed, i would like to see a tripod over this one! - completly uninteresting location.

Difficult to spot as there is no marker, found it on the second attempt after clearing the vegitiation, not the most impressive of survey marks

Eventually spotted this on my second attempt, had to enter the coords into the GPS to spot it as it was over the barrier, I had not looked there. Now my journey on the M6 will never be the same as tomtom will no longer beep at me as I drive past this point.

This is tricky to spot as all the earlier indicators have disappeared. Not the most scenic view.

Unusual location. It was dusk, but I reckon the paint is even more faded.

This is my first bolt! And walking distance from my house! But I have to say that it lacks any charisma! I'd have thought something a little more ornate would have been in order!

Easy, no vegetation as the rivit is on the edge of the deck of an overpass on the M6. Lots of noise, the motorway being drowned out by hungry sheep reacting to my diesel engine pulling up outside their field. The real meals on wheels, a landrover, turned up sonn after.

Cranage, the rivet.
