Bit of a slog to say you can see it from the road if you get the angle right. The track is now securely gated so it's a walk in damp brambly field edges. Some pleasant surviving stands of trees harbouring fieldfares.

Visited after arriving Kirkham on the 09.45 61 Stagecoach Blackpool bus from Preston. I spoke to farmer at field entrance asked if I could follow crop field boundaries to pillar,no probs so I followed boundaries straight to top & the trig. 6.70 Lancashire Day Ticket got me from Earby to Preston on the M1 & 152 Hotline buses,8 Lancashire Day Rider got me from Preston to Kirkham,another bargain day out.

Easy to ride/drive up concrete access road. Follow round perimeter in fields to view from closest possible point. The third reservoir top pillar today, all heavily defended with electrified fences and multiple CCTV

Atop a reservoir with considerable security. Walked in from the west. Pillar looks in good nick. Expansive views to the south.

Parked at the beginning of the track to the W then followed the track to the reservoir compound. The pillar has more security than the nearby Kirkham Prison!

Very secure compound. Doesn't look like your bog standard reservoir! Very wet under foot. Pillar is visible from road to the south if you want to save yourself a walk! At least its stopped raining now!

Looks good but as said before only visible from the bottom of the bank through the fence. Delightful walk to it though from the road to the west. Gorgeous Hawthorn blossom, beautiful purple vetch and glorious field of golden buttercups. And all the while to contrasty the peaceful ambience of the visual scene there was the incongruous loud traffic rumble as the M55 to Blackpool is immediately behind the hedge to ones left as I walked to the reservoir.

Well defended, with cameras and electric fence. I contemplated donning a rubber suit and using nylon rope ladders to scale the 4 metre fence, but decided to get my picture through the narrow mesh of the fencing instead. I approached from the lane to the east. Technically, it is unreachable, but I was close enough to claim a close encounter, I'd say.

the fence is now about 8 feet high with 4 feet of electric fence on top. Plus cctv every 20feet. Are we sure its a reservoir that its protecting and not a secret military installation

Couldn't quite get over the 6ft fence to reach the Trig. Feet got very wet whilst walking around the perimeter.

We approached this one from the East and parked on the little yellow road just before it goes over the motorway. You can see the trig from here and it is a fairly straight forward walk across the fields. The reservoir has got a 6 feet high wire mesh type fence around it but there is a pedestrian gate which can be climbed over without too much difficulty (no barbed wire on top). Not a very impressive trig considering it's a primary. GPS plaque, tarmac plug.
