A quick bag on a south to north journey. Parked in the wide bellmouth of the quarry road just to the east of the trig. As recommended by Nick&Rosie, walked back to the track leading to Middle Whitehill and wandered up it to the trig in the fenced compound. As previously reported, gate is down so entry was easy. Fine views.

There are a number of tracks in quick succession that run south from the road apparently towards the radio mast, the best one to access theTP is the one furthest west with a sign for "Middle White Hill". The gate into the reservoir compound has been smashed off its hinges, so no jumping over barbed wire required at present! Good views on a picturesque snowy afternoon...

Pillar within covered reservior enclosure, low fence but gate open. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved lettering. West sight open. BsM flush bracket faces 331, NW. Pillar completed 12th May 1946, costing 6.14s.0d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NZ29/28 in the Newcastle block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1969. The trig point was last maintained by the OS in July 1978.
