Roadside verge parking due E. Field boundary, scrubby woodland (where farmer dumps all his rubbish), field boundary. 3 sides have metal railing fencing, one side has barbed wire. However, the gate is open in the railing fence on the W side. Reservoir was constructed 1929 but appears to be disused now. Pillar sits atop the NW corner. Original top cap retained; LHS sight hole open. Good panoramic views.

Parked opposite Crags Low House. Up farm track to end then across field to trig via gate gate through old metal fence. Straight forward if somewhat muddy. Sheep obviously thought I had something for them as they accompanied me all the way over field, and back.

Followed the footpath through the trees from Rosleyrigg then over a fence to the southern side of the reservoir. Reservoir surrounded be 6' metal fencing on the E,N & W sides so best coming in from the south. OK views but fields sodden.

Over gate from footpath to a gate in top right hand corner. Through wood and over three barbed wire fences. A gate gives access to the disused reservoir compound.

Access via wood and very wet fields, several fence crossing, went back via gates. Reservoir long disused.

Short walk to Res. Cut string on gate to gain access and was tied in a bow for next visiter!

Access was simple thro field to N of plantation, with a mildly tricky fence to cross to reach the reservoir compound, which was too difficult to access so I didn't bother. Good views south to the Northern fells of the LD Nat Pk.

Interesting trig on a reservoir, old pumphouse nearby, decent views, brass center still present, access requires fence climbing

No padlock in west gate, and in any case, the iron railings do not run along the southern boundary of this enclosure, only a standard wire and post field fence. Tertiary station pillar completed 23rd April 1952 costing 21.0s.0d. Column in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces 278 west. Vented through north sight hole. Photographed 26/05/2010, GRP.

Nicely protected; the gate is locked again but a Trig-Samaritan has left a wooden gate against the security fence to allow access ;-) Nice view with only the NorthWest sight open.

Unplanned visit on the day.Approached from the east via the wood having to clear fallen branches to cross the stile.Plodged across the first field (amazing how a sloping hillside can still be waterlogged) got to the top corner and a barbed wire fence.I could see the trig but there appeared to be another two fences to cross so abandoned and went with Unreachable but visible.

We parked directly to the west and I walked across the fields. The trig is in a small reservoir compound with spiked railings but the gate was open so access no problem. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
