Destroyed 01/92, rushy area, after a fine frosty ascent of Baton Bing. BMs in immediate area seem gone too

Log #273. Formerly located to north of reservoir complex. Not much to see in such thick fog. [ExP-200/MiP-17/Rev-2/BM-15/IS-30/Other-9]

Trudged across the swamp to the nearest spot indicated by the GPS about 3m away. It's about 40-50m north of the reservoir enclosure. Views around are of...not much. The bing interrupts the view to Black Hill Wester Bracco and the reservoir destroys any views south. Pillar could have been removed simply due to being utterly nae use! Bing looks like a good viewpoint though!

Yep - looks to have been North of the newer reservoir. Good view to the nearby Bing but no sign of the pillar.

Shotts Reservoir ..was about a hundred yards thataway! :D

Work took me to the nearby prison, stopped by for a keek but the trig hadn't mysteriously reappeared....

I'd confused this with nearby Drumbow Reservoir, so spent some time puzzledly looking for a non-existant trig. My GPS also indicated to the north of the enclosure, but no sign, despite whole area having been set on fire recently, clearing vegetation.

The map shows its on a circular reservoir. Now behind the fortifications there is a rectangular reservoir and no pillar. Striking bing nearby.

Second visit; last time walked around reservoir and no sign. This time with GPS which peculiarly seemed to indicate a spot about 50 metres N of reservoir with no sign.

FB No. S3617 [OS]. Covered reservoir appears to have been rebuilt, no sign of trig. Unlisted (OS) by 1993, confirmed gone by 1995 [GRP]. Still mapped at 1:25K. I believe this was on a circular covered resr, now demolished.
