Parked in the lane, took the left of three gates, quick jog up the hard track at the field edge and as the track turns right, the trig is hidden inside a hawthorn hedge. There is a better view from the other side of the hedge, as it really is stuck in there. It looks to be in good condition, albeit with some minor damage to the top edges. The hedge makes a fine suit of armour!

Followed the same route as previous visitors. Walked past the pillar to start with and ended up in a field of excitable sheep who obviously thought that I was there to feed them. Found the pillar when I retraced my route.

Log #68. (106m). First visit 19/05/10. Attempted bagging this one while doing a 13km circular walk from Bardsey via East Rigton, Rigton Bank, Compton, Dalton Lane, Wothersome, Stubbing Moor & Pompercali/Hetchell Crags. The walk was excellent, but there was no legal access to the trig pillar. Revisit today and whoaa.... the gates to the field were open! Farmer in the field. Not a cloud in the sky, but the view to The White Horse shows the usual haze for that distance.

A reservoir trig outside the compound RESULT!! A very basic mast has been erected near to it, not sure what for though. A rather depressing location but we were rewarded on the walk back with a fabulous double rainbow.

Parked in front of Yorks. Water site. Walk around perimeter to left until you can turn right around back of site where trig can be found in hedge. Proper Trigofthedump! Great views can be had by walking all the way around the perimeter fence; views are worth a 7 but are no longer visible from trig. FB appears smaller than usual, like Whitcliffe at Ripon.

Still hidden in the hedge. Easily found but only with the invaluable information given by others. The area seems to be used for storage of chemicals and/or fertilizer and therefore not one of the most inspiring locations. However, the pillar is still there - what more could one ask for. Pillar is in good condition and has a plastic plug.

As per the comments made previously. It's in the next field beyond the (covered) reservoir. In the top left hand corner of the reservoir field there's a hole in the fence (see photo) taking you through the hawthorn bushes and the trig is sat in the bushes just on the left.
