Next to the reservoir, an easy walk from the car park to the E. Went on to Dunley Hill, the top of which was slightly harder to locate!

Found it thanks to tips from others. If you go to the front of res enclosure and walk upwards you will find it by turning off at the concrete markers. As others have said it is covered in moss and has original plug.

Arrived at the car park nearby but couldn't go into it due to height barrier. Camper van over 2m, so parked carefully in the road. Nice walk up to the trigpoint. Activated the trig for Worked All Britain amateur radio net.

The final day of our 6 day hill & trig bagging tour of SE England. Parking nearby in a forest car park, the trig is not located on public paths, but the whole wood seems to be common access land with a multitude of paths. Short distance from the trig is the HuMP, Dunley Hill. Pillar is in good condition, if a little mossified, plug intact. No views due to forest location.

I parked in the car park to the north east and followed tracks and paths to the pillar. In good condition and still retains an original metal indented lettered plug. Nice woodland location.

There's a line of concrete markers with ES WC║ probably making a pipe from the reservoir? If you look back to the reservoir where they cross the track, they point roughly to the trig.

Yet another pillar deep in a wood. Fortunately next to a small reservoir, so follow access track, then around far side. Attempting to hide further with a coating of moss!

Set off up the path from the nearby carpark. Got to the reservoir compund and assumed it might be in there. Only with the help of a passing dog-walker did I locate it! It's very moss covered but with traces of paint. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. Sightholes closed. No views whatsoever.

In a wooded area a few meters from a water board fenced off area. Very quiet. No views. Whatever did it triangulate to.

Bagged this by a short deviation from my 'North Downs Guildford to Dorking' section walk. Very mossy, and no views at all. The Reservoir fence is also most unattractive! Me. 226m

Cameras balanced on the ground don't show views!

Circular walk from Shere, found after a very steep but fortunately short climb up the side of the North Downs. Next to water storage reservoir, in good condition but totally surrounded by trees so no views

Located in a wooded area. GPS lost interest due to heavy tree presence. A search eventually located the pillar close to a reservoir. Nearby is a square pillar marking waterboard property.

Good condition, still shows some signs of paint, although very mossy. Beech trees now obstruct any view to nearby trigs!!

I took up skiing because of this place! Walked a length of the Downs in deep snow after a job interview. Saw tracks and was inspired. Middle of a rather lovely wood used for big orienteering events. As a confirmed hillbasher who is not supposed to appreciate this sort of stuff, I have to admit that there is some cracking walking in Surrey.
