Continuously symmetric solutions of the Adler-Bobenko-Suris class of discrete integrable equations are presented. Initially defined by their invariance under the action of both of the extended three point generalized symmetries admitted by the corresponding equations, these solutions are shown to be determined by an integrable system of partial differential equations. The connection of this system to the Nijhoff-Hone-Joshi "generating partial differential equations" is established and an
