As Nordicstar. House still empty but gate is opposite a car repair place so a bit brazen.clivevilla10/04/2018
Top of reservoir unobtainable, and it felt like the highest ground otherwise was near the start of Woodthorpe Road or even across the other side of the B684 opposite it.Wheelsy07/03/2017
I walked along the road looking at the very top through the fence.Alancache21/10/2016
Passing through Nottingham took me close to this. Walked around, took photos of the gates, that's about it...Aye Jimmy20/05/2015
Having bagged 'new' summit thought I'd visit the old one on the way home.RHW21/12/2014
Another drive by where border runs along streets.arranc19/04/2014
Wet day, so had a bus ride around Nottingham. Good chance to bag a couple of locals. Have passed this location many times over the years.Richard Gunn08/11/2013
Definitely well guarded and fence mainly overgrown with laurel.destaylor20/09/2013

I was going to bag this one today on the way to the new bouldering centre in Nottingham but after a close inspection of the map, I am going to claim the hill on the basis that I have driven and walked as close as you can get to the top many times before when I lived in Nottingham in the late 90's early 2000s. A good friend lived close by in Carlton.RichieRambler20/12/2012
Probably been here a few times before about 40 years ago as a school friend lived close by. However this is the first visit since started Unitary top bagging - tops like this make me wonder why I bother.Hillsidenick28/10/2012
Walked all roundBramley05/10/2012
Intersting spot. Side road by house, Woodthorpe road, has lowish gate that can be climbed, house now empty. Allowed bag of top of reservoir! Hardly a triumph...nordicstar01/08/2012
I actually quite enjoyed this - I'm going to agree with R. Mackey and claim the Bread and Bitter as the top! A nice city stroll, and some definite ascent, if you walk up from the bus station like I did!DanHolme20/08/2011

Visited all possible gates to this well guarded reservoir compound.Dugswell230/01/2011
This is a pretty boring top, one that you can't reach truly thanks to a big fence. However it was close by so i drove up to it - job done, back to more interesting things now...Cap_Thunderbolt26/01/2011
the ground is definetly higher at the rear of the flats round the corner from the main waterworks entranceDARRENG07/07/2010
Ample parking on the side street opposite the gates. Dull top.The Team05/04/2009
I claim the top to be the Bread and Bitter pub by the war memorial - much nicer than the reservoir.Richard08/06/2008
Took high point by reservoir gate.Nice curio shop oppositeelectricratman02/06/2008
Houdini couldn't get into this one! Might be a better view at night.chris creedy26/05/2008
Unsatisfactory urban top bagged on a weekend of Nottinghamshire trigging while better half was at a conference in Eastwood.andy29/09/2007
As reservoir is inaccessible did a "drive by", putting feet down at traffic lights. Dire traffic & speed cameras throughout Nottingham. This top is wholly unsatisfying, & I'm not convinced it's as high as the M1 alternative - can't we ditch this one..?wheresthepath27/04/2007

Even the folk in the flats at 649 Porchester Road inside the railings can't get access to the reservoir it's fenced off so effectively. Also Severn Trent signs warn of danger of "deep water" within.signyred17/08/2006
