Parked at end of the minor road. Good path to a Southern Water covered resr compound. Easy gate to negotiate. Pillar retains an original centre cap, lightly indented lettering; RHS sight hole open. Fine downland views all directions except S where resr obstructs views.

Can only get within a couple of metres as it's behind the reservoir fence

Beautiful views across to the Seven Sisters from up here. The trig is fenced off but you can get to with 2 metres of it.

1st of the day from Telscombe YHA, setting out late due to earlier rain. Cycled up lane then bridleway. Sited just inside reservoir compound.

Parked in Telscombe - lovely old village apart from the horrible and very visible detritus spreading up the Downs from the Stud Farm - and followed path from road end. TP in enclosed reservoir compound, just off path, with no obvious way in, and although FB readable and plug visible, this has to go down as 'unreachable but visible' - particularly as my presence was attracting wary looks from the many horseriders that were around. Grey, misty and cold - which was a shame as there would otherwise have been good views down to Saltdean and up onto the Downs.

A non-touched tick. Other walkers around, and no obvious entry into the compound. The tight squeeze seems to have been closed.

First trig during weeks holiday in East Sussex. Located inside reservoir fence - did not attempt access. Looked in good condition.

We parked at the end of the raod after Telscombe and took the bridle path to the resr. I couldn't see any way a bullock could have got into the compound apart from through the gate (see Saginanivalis' log). I managed to crawl under the fence on the west side diagonally opposite the pillar (tight squeeze!). Very nice area. Plug with indented lettering.

Located just inside a reservoir fence (too high to climb) Pillar is in good condition and there are good views all around, nice quite location and only one Private Property sign to miss ;-)

Could see it from a distance, but somebody was working on the fence right in front of it, so I'll have to take Alan Grove's word on the Flush Bracket.

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, in resr compound, presence of bullock inside suggested there could be a hole in the fence ? Fine view

Located within the compound of a covered reservoir near the village of Telscombe, high up on the South Downs. The pillar is sited a few feet inside the surrounding fence, but fortunately the Flush Bracket is sited such that it can be clearly seen.
