The summit reservoir lies within the aptly named Reservoir Field, the property of Chark Farm. The farm also hosts 5 holiday lets. The farmer allows access to the summit field for the holidaymakers along a track from the farmyard. This passes through some gates, as far as the summit field, then along the field edge to the top. The summit is within 2m high fencing but appears entirely man-made. Found the highest accessible natural land within the summit contour which will have to count. I was stopping at Fenton Chy, one of the lets, so access was permitted.moorsman25/06/2019
From NE, natural HP could be pasture W of covered resr, or under the resr.RHW20/10/2018
Reservoir near stables with Iain Brown.Dugswell213/03/2017
Approaching from the north over field tracks, we reached the west side of the 100m square, man- made covered reservoir. It has a 2 m high secure barbed wire- topped fence around it. The buildings on the east side are apparently in use, though not investigated. It is obviously hard to say which is the natural HP given the construction of the reservoir, whose top is apparently the unnatural high point. We decided we had reached the nearest practical point to the HP and have accordingly ticked it.Denise 17/12/2016
Field edges from the N. Large covered reservoir tops summit within secure perimeter fence. Building on E side is in use as stables. We visited the W and N edges and concluded there was no higher natural ground. Skies glowing pink with sunset. Now down to Lostwithiel and train and bus back to Fowey.RichardM17/12/2016
