Walked around the perimeter fence which includes GR given. As RHW states, ground inside compound is no higher and the fence was insurmountable as far as I could see with two men mowing the grass.clivevilla15/08/2019
From the northeast end off Underwood village, up the path through the wood, then southwest along the track by the reservoir and up the bank to the highest point inside the compound, and through a gap in the fence to the highest-looking points in the nearby fieldMariana Trench10/05/2018

From Underwood on path through the woods. Followed path around outside of reservoir compound. HP in pasture.PeterD08/12/2017

From RoW starting E side of resr, up thru wood, circuit of compound visiting both summits; ground no higher inside fence. Tony's HP SE side of resr is 65co not 70m, hence the 68 spot ht wins. Dropped phone on way up so no gr. Got down, eventually found phone thanks to nice lady in Tesco van who rang it for me. A car parked at resr gate with someone sitting inside all the time I was up there and gates open when I got down but saw no one up there.RHW16/10/2016
Thanks to jonglew for route and info.Dusty24/07/2016
Looked for path up from Underwood, through The Routs Wood, but new house construction at end of Willow Drive may have blocked off that route, may be a path by side of school. Eventually parked at reservoir access gates (ST 3911 8890), over low fencing, then through breeched chain-link fencing and along side of impressive large Tata Steel open reservoirs to 68m spot height in sheep pasture at SW side of reservoirs. Couple of mounds further SW contested HP, but settled for ST 38637 88588, a few metres SW of the spot height.jonglew23/06/2016
Parked car just on entrance to Underwood. Up path through woods and the alongside deep reservoir tanks, over severely damaged chain link fence to summit. The signs about trespassers seem to be generally ignored so access from north may be easier.Campbell Singer18/05/2016
Did 62 m top last week but cam back to do official summits which don't seem much higher. Newport completion.Adrian24/10/2015
Parked in Llanwern village, marked path through wood and across pasture.Ramblingpaul17/05/2015
From Underwood, path towards Llanwern then through woods to top. Went first to 68m spot height, then to SE side of reservoir where 1:25000 map shows small 70m contour at ST389885.Tony J17/05/2015
