A bit of a box tick joining the miserable list with Boardmans Reservoir as seen but untouched, highlight was probably the little pony in the field below. Completes the trigs in the area with Werneth, Hollingworthhall, Mossley Cross and next stop Hough Hill all visible through the murk.

Trig point is clearly visible on the reservoir bank but is not reachable due to one hell of a fence.

The company who own the reservoir have fenced off the entire resr including the trig. I couldn't get to it when I went looking but I could see it.

Sight but not touch wonder if United utilities let people in sometimes? No answer from their 3 phone numbers at the gates on the south side.

Once you're in the estate you can weave around the streets tracking the route of the bridleway right up to where the trig is. It's well fenced off on top of the reservoir

Easy to get close to, but impossible to get right up to. This pillar sits on the reservoir side behind a high fence and up on top of the dyke. Even so, from the ground it is possible to look up at Hartshead Pike and Brown Edge

Had to mark the score down just because I was unable to get up to it due to high fence and barb wire top.

Private. United Utilities. Securely within reservoir compound. Not willing to attempt daunting perimeter fence - high, barbed wire, CCTV. Pillar visible from bridleway off Barmhouse Lane.

Another fortress location - did a full circuit of fence but no apparent weaknesses.I have an alternative theory - maybe the fences are to keep something in not us out

Approached from south west - very big fence including land to north west of reservoir. Foot tunnel under the motorway is passable if heading for Newton Station.

Blimey! Just what's in that reservoir that it needs hundreds of yards of 18ft fencing topped with razor wire? I decided against attempting to reach the pillar for fear there might be a PBR Streetgang on the water ready to give the order to Almighty. Visible from 20 metres though.

Reervoir now surrounded by high fencing, as is the area to the north. The bridleway now goes from the trig point to the bridge over the motorway, following the motorway. Pillar can be clearly seen and looks in good shape.

bit awkward to get too, but it is reachable. the barbed wire fence is strong enough to support your weight no problems. nice reservoir too. however there is construction work going on at the moment so the bridleway following the side of the reservoir has been diverted northwards and now follows the motorway.

Godley Res Trig nice res, pity about construction work currently going on

Fencing doesnt look a problem normally but currently the FP is diverted to allow what looks to be pre building work on the next door field. Another view only for now

Reservoir was surrounded by a wall with barbed wire on top so I didn't venture inside but it was clearly visible.

We approached from the west. Barbed wire fence OK after the hedge dies out. A bit exposed. Tarmac plug.

Barbed wire was not a problem, it has its weakness where you can get over without climbing on any wire- a no no. On the edge of the reservoir, and definitely S2759. Concrete plug replacement. Slow trip over from Mellor, bagged the Werneth Low Clem en route. Lots of plovers (lapwings) on the edge of the reservoir.
