I approached via the FP from the north after parking a little further west along the road where there is a very wide farm entrance. It took me a while to find the couple of loose railings but they are still there and I am still just about slim enough to fit through the ensuing gap.

Pillar sits atop a covered reservoir with nasty fencing surrounding it, however mickandshane's tip still valid almost 11 years on although brambles on inside of the compound make it a little awkward. Original top cap is retained with indented lettering; rear sight hole open.

Thank you mickandshane. The railings are still easily moved to gain access.

We took the footpath from the north. I didn't fancy doing Tarzan impersonations (still a bit hungover) so looked for another means of access - and there was one! When you get to the reservoir cross the first stile and then about half way between this fence line and the southern corner of the resr there are a couple of railings which are undone at the bottom (the vegetation has been squashed down a bit on the reservoir side). These can be slid to one side and 'hey presto' you're in! Even Shane managed it! Don't forget to slide them back afterwards. Plug with indented lettering.

approach from NNW good parking opposite footpath found overhanging branch then spotted farmer feeding the sheep. Looked unsuccessfully for discrete access to no avail so settled for 10m away.
