Parked TQ544309 (near Waitrose) short walk south along A26 (all on pavement) to reservoir. 5 bar fence (easily climb-able) but fence was already down so negated the need. Trig next to building. Eady to find. Unfortunately some green graffiti on it.

Two possible gates to climb over, but chose the larger one. A quick walk round the building to the pillar and straight back out again. Road is rather busy but no one seemed to be bothered.

Located in a water company's compound on the side of the A26 in middle of Crowborough. Unable to view from the roadside as it's located behind a building. An easy gate to hop over then a hunt round in the compound for the trig. Pillar is in good structural condiiton, but its white paint job is peeling badly. There is a Marilyn close by, but not easy to determine its exact location.

Presumed it was in the reservoir compound. Easy access over wooden gate, then search around. Can't imagine what use it could have been sited here obscured by reservoirs, buildings and trees!

Easy find in water tower/reservoir compound, but had to pick my moment to climb gate to gain access as traffic busy. Original plug, but peeling white paint, green graffiti, and a rather forlorn TP.

I wonder if the trig used to be on top of the resevoir at one stage. Nice easy access. I see the grafittii artists have bagged it too and signed it also.

Bagged this whilst collecting my son from the nearby Cadet Training Camp. This is easy to whizz past in the car. The low wooden gate is easy to negotiate. What a nice change not to have to run the gauntlet of barbed wire! TP itself has been painted white and although looking a bit down at the heel is in good structural condition. No views that I noticed, but then I didn't hang around.

One of the highest rigs in this area and a primary to boot. Access is quite easy by climbing the gate which appears to be quite a regular occurrence judging by the worn state of the timber at the hinge side. Painted white with some graffiti. Plug with indented lettering.

Not any use a trig point anymore being surrounded by a builtup water resiouvor, building and hedge. But due to the radio mast its possible to see its location from afar and how it would of once been useful before (persubably) crowbrough built up around it.

Located in the grounds of the town's underground reservoir. Have lived in Crowborough all my life and never knew this was here. In good condition, although white paint has peeled off.

According to the map this appears to be located in the grounds of a water reservoir on the A26 main road. There is a thick hedge bordering the site and it is possible that the pillar is behind this.

I can remember climbing over a fence and the trig being next to a brick built building.

The white is the trig
The very very faint white area on the right is the trig. In fact you can only see it on the original !
