Parked at the cemetery entrance (SJ 4890 4795) - benchmark on the wall to side of the main gates. Took a track leading along S side of the burial ground, then field margin to the impressively large new covered resr with its high security fencing. Looks like the top of the hill has been excavated to partially bury the water tank. Circumambulated it, all ground inside seems lower now, couldn't really identify an obvious HP. Walked out along N side of cemetery, through a residential area, to the B road.jonglew23/11/2018

After running Whitchurch 10k and thought it was a good idea to do this one on a Sunday. Parked by cemetery and up track as others. Walked around the perimeter. It is difficult to believe that this level of protection is just for a water supply.clivevilla08/04/2018
Circled the reservoir perimeter fence with the permission of a water company employee. NE of circuit seems hp. En route to Old Trafford.Campbell Singer30/12/2017
Cycled from Cholmondeley Castle, via Hampton Post. Onwards to Norbury Hill. This is the most protected hill summit I've seen, strong high fences and TV cameras everywhere.Minto20/08/2017
Gravel track leads to no admittance gated resv. Another fairly forgettable jobbie.stig_nest18/07/2017
7th and final hill of today,the 1st part, Ridley to Tilston, included Ridley Bank, Peckforton Point, Bulkeley Hill, Harthill and Round Hill. I then caught the 41a bus from Tilston to Hampton Heath and explored Hampton Post before dropping down towards Malpas but I took Mates Lane then Bridleway South veering off to climb new set of steps and then I walked all the way around the perimeter and recorded 134m on my gps. Route finished at the Hough B&B.Dazingdale25/02/2017
From SE as others, walked round fence, ground NE side of resr by broom bush seemed slightly higher but essentially the hilltop has been levelled for resr construction, no higher ground inside fence.RHW19/02/2017
As others up the gravel road. No one about.Alan Caine27/12/2016
Walked up gravel service road for reservoir. Guarded like Fort Knox with 15 ft fences with 4 or 5 electrified strands on top. Looks as if building work was going on, but luckily managed to walk around compound, as no workers present on Saturday morning.David Evans03/12/2016
Malpas Service Reservoir's track past cemetary and large house. Walked round the enclosure, all looked much the same height to me, took a reading near SW corner nearest masts.Aye Jimmy14/01/2016
