I see its in the database as Destroyed so I guess it probably is but I didn't get into the fenced compound. The nearest I got was 40 meters away and that was by parking in the Hartshill Country Park car park and walking along the attractive ridge towards the reservoir from there. As the path began to drop away I took to the woods. At the top I could see over into the reservoir. My picture was taken from about 55m from the former trig point, the fenceline got me within about 40m.
