Parked in reservoir entrance and stood on high point tending to SW side of road opposite reservoir. Did look in field to SW and possible looked as high so walked to cross roads, turned left down Well Lane then left again on PROW through Clarence House Farm. This brought me to other side of field opposite reservoir which I crossed back to the van. From this direction field is clearly lower with HP other side of hedge.SteveSmith06/12/2019
A short walk along the verge after visiting Shandy Hall in Coxswold: highly recommended for the outstanding and very interesting talk about Laurence Sterne, but only open 2:30 - 4:30 pm Wednesdays and Sundayís.Nick Down128/08/2019
Probably did this one Easter 2009, definitely have now!tim74729/01/2019

Out of car to walk roadside verges, then to nearest wood for a dog walk, with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL26/01/2019
Parked on verge for lunch... enough saidN.Morters25/10/2018
HEMA Amateur Radio Activation. If able to, itís better to visit by foot or bicycle, otherwise there is little sense of achievement! Plenty of footpaths and forest walks nearby and some nice views from the summit next to the reservoir.G0DEB55916/08/2018
Another easy tick. Just my sort of summit.Newton Maximus20/07/2018
Seeing as it was gone eleven that I arrived, the nearby bus shelter was very well placed for that night's doss.Alex C17/04/2018
Roadside HP. Had a wander round to bag the 3 trigs on and around the covered resr. I couldn't possibly admit to accessing the compound - but if I did, it would have been up and over the easy main gates, it was a quiet Sunday morning and not a soul was stirring!jonglew11/03/2018
Underwhelming. Parked at gate and bagged indistinct snowy ground next to high secure fence. Refurbishment work ongoing inside but no one there today. Interesting skies- bight aquamarine strip beneath with cloud.Denise 02/12/2017
Nice skies.RichardM02/12/2017
Easy parking on wide verge by gates to covered reservoir. Got out of car & walked 20yd SE along grass verge, crossed road & walked back 20yd along opposite verge which appears to be slightly higher. (S)gerrybowes02/09/2017

Claire would have been appalled, except that I failed to tell her that this is a hill and I don't think she realised. She was slightly confused by my getting out of the car while she turned it around.Pete R24/11/2015
Jen was also as excited as Liz for this one. Water enclosure impressively guarded now. Sealing off old trig location for the ladder-less.nordicstar29/07/2015
I found myself with nothing special to do in York so came and bagged this top which is, errmmm, nothing special.clivevilla28/07/2015
Liz was appalled that she'd had to detour for this.jimbloomer08/07/2015
With Ali Beck and only a second outing for my 'Portatrig' of Ben Vane fame, specifically for a photo call. Appropriate as Yearsley used to have a trig.vegibagger20/05/2015
Easy visit to verge prior to exciting descent of Sutton Bank on road covered in snow and ice.catman18/01/2015
Parked at road bend south of Ampleforth at SE 58458 78265 near recreation area. Took track south by fields to wood, by bridge over river and up to fish pond on the abbey's estate. Then followed path on its east side and track through forest up to a pool. Then up to forest road WSW to road, then south-east to summit on road next to resrrvoir just south of crossroads. Returned the same way. Done while on retreat at Ampleforth Abbey.Man of Kernow121/06/2014

Very pleasant drive to the top with Liz, followed by a cream tea at Nunnington Hall nearby. It doesn't always have to be strenuous...DanHolme28/08/2012
On way to Claire and Steve's wedding. Not a lot else to say about this one!simon and co19/07/2012
With Duli. I thought she'd like this one as she moans about climbing big hills. She moaned that it was completely pointless. I can't win. Might be time for a new girlfriend.Wycombe Wanderer12/05/2012

Nothing to recommend it - quiet I suppose.destaylor14/07/2011
No sign of trig, and sturdy fence has been erected. Had a walk around the fence and took the highest point to be near the locked gate.The Team05/03/2011
Parked beside res. No trig. Highest point seemed to be on the road verge.chrisbien04/03/2011
There is some redevelopment work going on at the resevoir and it looks like a surdy fence is going to be installed. I was lucky today was the temporary fence proved less challenging.Father Ted23/01/2011
could not find the trig, think the reservoir extension has been built where it used to be.DARRENG18/09/2010
