Harrop Edge from GR: SE 09747 34856.Hippster25/01/2020
Harrop Edge from GR: SE 09747 34856. Access Permission from couple at house Greenland Farm, really friendly wanted to make us a hot drink. The field currently has two horses and deeply churned up. New summit position put forward being the OS surface bolt at SE 09618 34729. This is one metre higher than the highest natural ground around the covered reservoir and agrees with the trig point position from the OS six inch maps from the 1890's.ronaldo33325/01/2020

1 of 5 on 25.8 mile bike ride. Starting in parkside road, Bradford. Including harrop edge, chellow heights, idle hill, beecroft hill and owlcotes hill. Think I’m reservoired out today 😩The-Z-Man02/09/2018
Hopped over the gate and round reservoir and then onto top. Fine views.Campbell Singer08/11/2017
Parked by gates easy to access, went to top and round to back of reservoir. Also had walk up road. Well and truly reservoired out today on tour of Leeds and Bradford P30s.PeterD05/09/2017
Sorry walk up side of reservoir bank. Why aren't all the reservoirs open like this one?vegibagger26/06/2017

Possible to park alongside the reservoir as the summit (wherever it is) can be reached within a couple of minutes. The road summit gives the same height as the highest point behind the reservoir! Visited them both ..... in case ....moorsman17/02/2017
with K, walked from Cottingley via Chellow Heights.IanHHill13/02/2017
a walk around 2 TuMPs Harrop Edge & Chellow Heights (closest I could get was the golf course) & 3 trigs from Lingbob.joseph mitchell09/02/2017
1st hill of 5 today, on a route from the Victoria Hotel in Atherton to Halifax station. Got a gps reading of 306m on Back road approaching from the North and also in adjacent field bank next to house (gate was open and people were not about). Climbed over gate and did a circuit on the flat top and then did circuit around base before proceeding onwards towards Soil Hill.Dazingdale05/02/2017
Not a fan of covered reservoirs, but this one is easy enough to get to! Possible natural high point on the verge further up Back Lane?the_adam23/12/2016
Only 1 km from Egypt but No pyramid just a flat topped reservoir, climbed with Darren and the field behind. Egypt itself is surprisingly only 1km south where much quarrying took place in the18th C using the Elland Flags sandstone from the Carboniferous Coal Measures, not for building pyramids or the Sphinx but for providing stone for enclosure walls, mills and housing. However they did build the 'Walls of Jericho' -high retaining walls either side of the steep narrow lane to keep back the waste rock.Chris Pearson25/07/2016
Easy access for a covered res. Not even a keep out notice on the gate.ngthack08/11/2015
Went to natural top.catman10/02/2015
Bagged the reservoir top and had a walk in two fields to the amusement of a local.Dugswell205/10/2014
Easily over gate on to Reservoir Top Highest natural ground?Bramley11/04/2014
Another YWA covered water tank, seem to be common in these parts. This one has easy access though, and usual large flat top.Aye Jimmy17/03/2014
