First night away from home since October, and hence opportunity of bagging another pillar. A hurried breakfast at Whitby YHA and caught the 8.45 train to Nunthorpe. A short road walk, turn on to the bridle way, up bank and view through security fence.

Revisit- original log deleted. Entry into compound is now more difficult as the magic portal has gone (fence repair - replaced vertical slats). Climbed fence at side gate- gloves recommended. Visited on the way back from Eston Nab. Getting dark when at trig - lights of Middlesbrough very nice and the views of Eston Nab & Roseberry topping were excellent. Went on to Nunthorpe Railway St.

Second of the day and another soaking. I should have done some research on this one first I think.Walked the fence perimeter and saw no damaged sections on what must be one of the best reservoir security fences. Just managed to make out the pillar through the mist despite being only a few metres away.

From bridleway to SW leading into Flatts Lane Woodland Country Park. Couldn't find a safe way into reservoir compound, but hadn't read previous logs. Took photo but unable to read FB number from this angle.

Nunthorpe Reservoir Zoom shot through fence from SW, can't read FB.

Parked at bottom of the lane and walked up to the padlocked gate ! Tried to squeeze through the gap put could not quit get through, so I walked round the fence to take a photo of the trig and then I found another smaller locked gate that had some handles sticking out on both sides and I managed to climb over the gate to get a close up picture of the trig, but it wasn’t easy as im not as young as I used to be.

The Trig ! The trig all locked up behing the bars.
The Trig ! After scaling a eight foot gate at the west side of the compound I managed to get to the trig.

Well there is a loose slat but I couldn't get through the gap and I thought I was a thin bloke. I had a try at jumping the side gate but chickened out.

Split panorama covers 135°; south to SW and NW to NE, remainder lost to surrounding trees.

No chance of getting over that fence. Failing light but lonely trig visible in its cage. Views out to the north over Tees Valley towns & industry, quite pretty when lit up at night.

Yorkshire. I made my way into the grassy field on the left of the track and got right up to the reservoir fence at the nearest point to the trig, it was about 20 yards away.

Parked in the parking area of Flatts Lane County Park and followed paths through the woodland. Inside a fenced compound, no access possible but could see the pillar.

Another reservoir dog to quote another trig bagger. I approached this from the west up a track from the main road. The trig sits on top of a well fenced reservoir but can be seen by climbing the nearby hill just to the south of the reservoir but the chance of reading the flush bracket number with anything short of a Jodrell Bank sized telescope is limited.

This is on a reservoir belonging to Yorkshire Water. I gained access as I was using it in a nearby survey. The correct place name is Godfalter Hill
