Drove past here today, I noticed there was a lot of work going on in the reservoir compound, I then spotted the pillar looking very different to my last visit. Popped into the compound and spoke the Site Manager, asked him what was happening to the pillar and was it likely to be going, he advised me that the work was all but done and that pillar was going to stay where it is now, he suggested it to be in the original location? I suggest it has moved slightly from the other images? Certainly been dug up . At least it survives!! I assume when Trigger visited it in June 2017 it was elsewhere pending its replacement.

couldn't find any where in the fence to sneak in but there is a weakness which I won't mention on here.

Northamptonshire. The gates to the compound were not locked. I think the padlock is broken. Hazy views today. Plug with slightly indented lettering.

Squeezed through gap in fence. Tight fit, felt very exposed running around the enclosure. Revisited the next day at 07.30 along with Mr Peregrinus. Nice to meet another loony trig bagger.

Access through hole in fence, at end of tunnel between hedge and fence from the mast enclosure metal fence end, bit of a sqeeze through, but you are hidden from the road - pillar located on top of resr. cover and in good condition, bit tresspassy, but accessable.

Saw it from the road, fence prevents closer access. Looked in good condition.

We parked in the entrance to the resr which is on the road that runs north - south. I managed to squeeze under the chainlink back towards where it joins the B5385. Somebody has cut the bottom tensioning strand which means you can pull the chainlink up a bit and crawl through. Pillar in good condition as previously mentioned. Plug with indented lettering.

I had a bit of a mood on so I was going to visit it and nothing was going to stop me. I accessed where wire fence joins the metal railings in NW corner between railings and roadside hedge - undo the loose wire ties and then squeeze through the gap. But here are lots of photos so you really don't need to.......... As you might expect cap et al in very good condition. 1000% = S4994

vgc, on resr in locked compound, white, FB just readable by telescope from road (grass on bank tends to obscure, recently cut). Subsequently revisited 2/11 via the Gap for a closer look. Metal cap, shallow letters.

I agree with Father Ted - I had a good look through my binoculars at the pillar through the railings and that was the number I came up with. The pillar is quite white-painted and stands on top of the reservoir embankment just off a lane junction. No real views from the road but I should imagine the pillar itself has quite commanding views.

To coin someone elses phrase this is another Reservoir Dog. It is on top of this small reservoir and well protected by barbed wire. I could not resist putting two photos of the flush bracket on the web site taken with a zoom lens. I have had a frustrating time playing with the brightness and contrast on photo editing programmes only to seemingly see at least two different numbers. The first and last numbers are 4 but the second could be 9 8 or 6 and the third 9 6 or 5. Who says the camera never lies. I think I am going to go for S4964
