Parked a few mts downhill from Highfield House where there are no double yellow lines. Over gate into reservoir land. Unsure as to what is or is not man made.Campbell Singer05/12/2017
Penultimate hill to complete Kirklees Co. Train from Nottingham to Barnsley then another train to Huddersfield but got off at Shepley. Tracks, lanes and fp's skirting Shelley to Royd house (stopping for soup and coffee at the -Three Acres'). Continued on road to enclosed reservoir. No problem in climbing over to explore covered top and nearest natural high point beside fence plus also visited crest of road. Great lighting today and view of the impressive mast with a deep blue sky background. Took lane West opposite destination...Round Wood hill.Dazingdale26/11/2016
Seen the transmitter from the M1 on many occasions. Contraflow road works by the actual top at time of visit, was able to park by locked gate and access reservoir top.PeterD26/10/2016
Like others parked near transmitter and walked along road.catman01/07/2016
I'll say I bagged it because I walked over the crest of the road then back again - be nice if we could get in there but the padlocks were emphatic looking (and asbestos survey signs unwelcoming). Ice cream in the car park - not needed as I was cold enough just getting from the layby and back.briandavies17/04/2016
Parked at viewpoint then bagged the high point of the road and covered reservoir with Smudge.Dugswell202/04/2016

On the way home after seeing the mighty Rams win at Huddersfield.Mark Sims24/10/2015
Large parking area due north of the main transmitter. The highest point however, is a short distance further along the road. It is the area around the covered reservoir.moorsman14/04/2015

Triggy day on 30th anniversary of getting shot.vegibagger28/02/2000
Clem bagging on drive back to Sheffield from work course in Leeds. The UK's tallest free standing building. 1000feet of concrete (330m) still standing after 45 years, broadcasting TV and radio.,unlike the previous even higher mast which came crashing to the ground in 1969 - missing the few buildings. There is a lift inside ( and ladder in case it breaks down) and indoor viewing gallery near the top. Would a smaller mast on a higher hill have been as effective?Chris Pearson01/03/1996
