Accessed through the adjacent construction site. Pillar sits atop an old covered reservoir with a large new one being constructed adjecent. Several hair fractures and one a little more substansive on the rear face that looks as though it's had a repair at some point. An original centre cap is retained, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole open. Some moderately good views,

Contractors well on with building large new reservoir on SE side of hill. Well run site office where permission to visit trig pillar on old redundant reservoir given - partly escorted. Nice to meet with such helpful workers.

Another lockout managed to photo the top of the trig by standing on the bench near the res ,On the front side there are also signs pleading with local parents to keep children from playing or trying to access the complex.

Only managed to see top of it from the fence, perched on top of the reservoir, I'm assuming it's in good nick. No views to rave about.

Can just be seen from outside fence. Looks climbable but chose not to as very overlooked by housing.

Turned off the road down Nest lane but, like most previous visitors, had no chance of getting into the compund as any waterboard officials would long since have gone home to watch the cricket!

Like others have reported, this is very well protected, so it remains "unreachable but visible". Mainly called by to check it was still there. It is, so it can't be the one that's now at West Notts College. Missed the boat for intercepting the grass-cutting team to gain access to the reservoir compound, by the way - it looks as if the grass was cut just a few days ago.

In a very secure reservoir enclosure, with an even more secure horse field next door. Can just see it, and I attempted a photo in the failing light. Number suggests its an early member of the network, and its probbaly the highest in the county. (Dont ask about the Notts high point... its a very long story!)

You can just see the pillar, which is inside the reservoir compound, from the road. But without permission from the Water Company, you can't get in.
