Was an effort just to see it through the hedge. There is a lot of ground work going on there with warnings of deep excavations, and after a close call the night before with an open manhole cover, I though Id give the fence on this one a swerve.

Visited during an evening bike ride. Pillar enclosed within reservoir compound by fence and hedge. A slimmer man than me might squeeze under the gate (pillar not visible from here), but I didn't want to chance shredding my clothes and where would I have left my bike? The pillar can't be seen from the road due to the dense hedge, I managed to burrow through a load of nettles and a thinner part of the hedge to the fence and could just make out the pillar about ten feet to my left, that was as close as I was getting though. Looks to be in good condition.

Below is my first attempt at this trig, can't believe it was over seven years ago. Was in area visiting my brother, same one, he'd be 62 the following day. Trig is reachable if you want to risk the barbed wire on top of the gate or are an anorexic limbo dancer below. 31/3/11 Out on a walk with my brother (who is not a trigger but enjoys the search) who actually spotted it first. We walked to the E side of the compound and looked in, it is on the south side right next to the fence, a metre and a bit W of the telegraph pole. Vegetation in front and in the fence is gradually covering the view of the trig up but we got a glimpse. Shame the fence wasn't built 2m further back. May come back at a later date to get to it. (Gave score of 4)

Didn't fancy climbing gate or fence. Could see back of pillar from field. Found a gap in very prickly hedge and nettles on the road. A crawl on my front and was tantalisingly close but for the chain link fence but was able to read bracket. Looked in good order. Now suffering a bad case of nettle rash.

Best not visited at this time of year - hedge is now very thick with brambles and nettles, and we could get only the merest glimpse of it thanks to CJO's directions - certainly not close enough to read the FB without tree loppers and seceteurs. [FB for logging purposes only].

Parked by the gate, was unable to find a way through the thick hedge this time of year, so lay down and slid under the main gate, bit of a squeeze. Pillar good condition located a few meters to the right of the gate.

4/6 Decided to have my sandwiches in the entrance to the reservoir when I was disturbed by a Severn Trent Water Board van. As he wanted to drive in, I pushed my luck and asked if it would be alright to photograph the pillar. After a short while he said yes and I got access. He said they did a weekly inspection of the fence, so others have been quite lucky.

Bit of a grey day spoiling the view. The trig in good condition is still safely imprisoned in the reservoir compound. Number easily visible on plate facing road.

3 of 9.I was only really able to view the trig through the fence from the adjacent field to the north .The hedge is now so thick that I could only just get the merest glimpse of the bottom of the trig using the wooden pole as a reference.Reasonable views to the east.

Technically unreachable but visible. Pillar inside reservoir compound, but visible through hedge and fence. Crawl through the hedge needed to photograph FB! Pllar appears to be in good condition but could not check the top.

At this time of year, it's a much more difficult crawl in the bottom of the hedge to see this one. Fortunately, no-one passed by as I did this! The condition looks good, but I couldn't see on top of it. GR is the hedge bottom, to 10m only.

Difficult to see close up as it's behind the hedge and Water Board fence, but just managed to get enough gap to zoom in on the plate.

Not the most auspicious spot for one's 400th trig but they all count. Snowing like the clappers at this point. No leaves on the hedge so could see the pillar easily through the fence. Original plug. All three visible sightholes closed. No paint. Possibly there might be some views in better weather but it was a much as I could do to see the car on the other side of the lane.

Could not get to this pillar, but we could see it. From a distance it looked to be in good condition.

Impossible to get to - but all details visible through hedge - if you can crawl far enough into the hawthorns and peer through the chain link.
