Drove right up to the reservoir, did realise it was over the gate so initially went round the field entrance, climbed the fence bagged the trig and then over gate to car. Easy first bag of the day.

Parked at the start of the track up to the mobile phone mast. I could have driven all the way up, but I didn't want to risk being challenged by the farmer. Pillar is inside the compound but easily accessible if you're prepared to hop over the gate, or the wooden fence from the field side. Good views back to the S/SW.

Foolishly drove right up to the reservoir gate with MarkA in the transit. Should have reversed back down but instead got bogged down trying to turn around. Whoops. Luckily a farmer drove up in his tractor and towed us out. He couldn't keep a straight face even when mentioning the trespass word. Nice chap, even declined my offer of a fiver to get himself a pint.

First one of the day on my way to the birthday bash at Cold Ashby. Relatively straight forward access to this highly visible pillar. Parked at the junction of the lane and track to the mast. Followed the track, hopped over a gate and there I was. Pillar is in good condition and retains an original plug. Wide ranging views.

Just to say that I passed by again today - and amazingly, the field adjacent to the reservoir had a large number of young lambs in it!! LAMBS? On December 21st??? Is this another by-product of global warming??

We parked at the bottom of the track that leads up to the mast and reservoirs. Easy timber fence to climb over. Plug with indented lettering.

Quite easy access, even at the dead of night! Lathama's report needs no embellishment.

This one is in a small field of small reservoirs, slightly below their summits. It's all intact with the original plug with slightly indented letters. There are very deep, almost '8' shaped holes under each lug. West sighthole open, the others closed. A fair amount of paint on the S and W faces. Concrete base projecting about 6" above grass level. Fair views over agricultural terrain, especially SW but reservoirs obscure views NE. And, yes!! There is the ever-present MPM about 15 yards SE of the pillar.
