Parked in Darnley Drive (TN4 0TH) . Trig is located in grounds of Great Bounds service Reservoir (South East Water) tall France and landlocked gate. Walked round perimeter looking for an access point (I'm not adverse to a bit of fence hopping), but being only 5'2" tall and the fence about 4 1/2 foot high it proved a bit difficult. I neglected to bring a step ladder! Trig visibly I the grounds when I stood on top toes looking over The fence

Viewed through the trees from the path. On private land so may return for a fence-hopping assault. Bagged the hill and windmill nearby.

Followed mickandshane's advice - used marker post for a leg up. In quiet residential area, so at dusk

I hopped over the fence with the help of a water board marker stone - ground is higher on other side so return is no problem. Pleasant spot for a reservoir. Plug with indented lettering.

Located in the reservior compound, access not a problem, just a hop over the fence. Pillar in reasonable condition, a bit rough around the top edge. This was not apparent untill I look at my pictures as this was bagged after dark.

This trig is still there, with its plug. Located in a water storage compound. Its not possible to see the trig from road, i must of looked silly walking backwards and forwards in front of compound and then jumping over the fence (at my own risk so the sign says!) just to emerge 30 seconds later to disappear off again!

It's there OK. Located in the grounds of Darnley Drive Reservoir in Bidborough. Intact but very tired looking.

Although it is not clear from the maps, this location is a small reservoir in an up-market residential estate. The front of the site is bounded by yet another thick hedge, which prevents any sighting of the pillar, if it is still there.

In Reservoir enclosure so no views, but stupendous ones nearby!
