Bagged as YSM380 Giants Grave. Parked in the lane and followed the route uphill. A wee baby trig with OS benchmark and rivet is close to the main pillar. A steep walk for almost all of it but it was a lovely sunny day. If you are interesting in logging it it's: Rivet: Giants Grave RIVET: RIVET SUR STO 0.9M SE HEDGE (ODN 242.9348m, AGL 0.0m).

Must have passed this BM a good few times, but never recall seeing it before. Anyway, looked for it this time, but hardly needed to do that! Mini-pillar stands 0.4m agl with rivet and deeply cut arrow both on top surface. Approx 50m WSW of trig pillar. Photos at:

Actually a very nice example of a rivet rather than a 1GL Bolt - OS give the grid ref as SU 1654 6317. It lies a little to the W of Giant's Grave Trig.
