Top secret trig!!! Don't think the ladders would be a good idea anymore.

It can't just be water that's in there. The trig point is visible and a photo of the F.B is possible. But no one around today to turn off the power so unreachable it is.

Rode in on access track from SW, then walked security fence perimeter to nearest possible point. Facing FB but eyesight not good enough to read at this distance! Passed two active beehives nearby.

An ordinary trig but with Fort Knox protection, hence high mark! Very fortunate in that gentleman from United Utilities was working on site in outer compound and allowed me access to the inner compound, which meant temporarily switching off power to electrified fence and alarm systems. He mentioned that his boss had allowed access a year or two before to another (presumably Earby Rambler).

Fence has grown since my last visit: 4m electrified fence around the resr itself, enclosed by the older pointy steel fence. Several CCTV cameras. Took the scope up and got a decent FB shot - guess thatll have to do.

Unable to reach the trig because it is in a fenced area, but it is visible from the perimeter fence.

As others have said it's behind the fence. Looks to be in good condition but unable to read the flush bracket no. without binos.

Got as close as possible, but the steel fencing prevented getting the lat few feet. Couldn't make out bracket number as I was squinting into the sun!

Very high security for a reservoir. At least the pillar is safe from vandalism behind the fence. It looks in good condition.

Another one of my local trigs :) Didn't risk being impaled on security fencing, so this could be rates as a semi-bag. Visited during mountain bike ride, suprised it's taken me this long to visit. Also ran into Ken Morley (Reg Houldsworth from Corrie) on canal.

did a full circuit to weigh up the best way in and decided it was the east end where a gate is tied to the deadly fence-assured my exit by slinging a bit of duck board under the fence for the later escape at the same point.


not too promising...
looks better...
but railings...
the way in!
