(2353) Good work by ted. It would appear the rivet is no longer. This seems to be backed up by others who have had a closer look.

Details from the OS archive at Kew and a follow-up visit to the site. The Yearsley rivet dates from July 1965 and was installed as a replacement for the trig pillar. It was placed on a rectangular concrete slab, approx mid-way along the NE side of the reservoir. A letter, dated 9/7/65, refers to a distance of approx 57 metres from the pillar whereas an observation dated 20.7.65 put the rivet at 61.137m from the pillar. The pillar was subsequently destroyed when a new reservoir was constructed. A letter, dated February 1968, confirms the demise of the pillar. The original sketch, dated 29 July 1965, shows two hatch covers aligned to the SE edge of the slab. Whilst there are still two covers at this location, they now occupy a different position. The OS record for the rivet was updated in April 1970 to record the position of four witness marks, as shown on the revised sketch. From this, the dimensions of the slab are estimated as 2.885 by 1.711 metres with the rivet at a distance of 2.246m perpendicular to the SW edge of the slab, 0.638m from the NE edge, 0.496m from the NW edge and 1.216m from the SE edge. The smaller hatch cover therefore appears to be on top of the rivet. This suggests that the concrete slab may have been replaced or, if retained, that the rivet was lost when the hatches were reconstructed. (postscript) The rescaling of the OS documents on upload has resulted in a slight loss of detail. Please let me know if the originals would be of interest.

GR led me to a hatch cover approx centre of the NE edge of the covered reservoir. There were some bumps and irregularities under thick green paintwork, but nothing that look as though it may have been a rivet. Jury's out on this one.

Stopped to look en route to York. Didn't feel like jumping the fence to find out if it was there!

If its still there its inaccessible on the reservoir which is well defended behind a tall fence.

No way to determine if its there or not, certainly no pillar.
