Next to covered res. Also visited trig. No crop.ngthack09/09/2015
Found a previous bagger's whistle on lanyard caught on the spiky hedge gap. Funny to find evidence of others playing this odd game. Picked up a million or so grass seeds stuck in my socks wading over the summit reservoir meadow and across fence to edge of wheat field but stopped as no runnels led to trig.Chris Pearson30/07/2015
Parked in a small area downhill from the access gate to the reservoir. There is a gap in the hedge uphill from the gate. A short solo walk to the alleged high point.bolton24/07/2015
Went through gap in hedge about 25m south of reservoir entrance and then up access track. Went over to look at the trig in the field but didn't fancy tramping through the farmer's crops.Wheelsy13/07/2015
The 8th of 9 county high points todaymcallmar08/04/2015
From NW, parked in layby, entered R of resr gate, came back along ridge to mast and down to field gate, easier. Natural highpoint probably under resr (undefended) towards S edge, 'official' spot height is at fence.RHW21/12/2014
From gate at side of road. Path a little overgrown in places to get to top. Not bad views for little top.bolieve16/08/2014
Park at entrance to reservoir. Through gap in hedge 25m to south and through trees on feint path in grass to summit bu edge of reservoir. Didn't bother with trig as lower, but would have been easy to bag over fence from reservoir compund.Hillsidenick31/05/2014

From Whitwell Common.Richard Gunn09/09/2013
From layby just S of Harthill village. Gap in hedge has gate and track to communications mast. Short distance away is covered reservoir, highest point seems to be between this and a fence towards SW corner. Some distance away to SE in field stands TP.Aye Jimmy13/05/2013
Like others, went through hole in fence. Felt like trespassing, so quickly went on top of reservoir mound, and quickly down again.madaddo30/04/2013
Gate firmly locked - metal fencing goes a few metres in each direction. Gaps in hedge or from the gate to W of trig.destaylor20/12/2012
First top done with Greg and George (4 and 2) and the high point of my home town. From the lay-by over the gate and a 5 min walk to the top. Good views for a small hill.Daddy and Greg14/10/2012
On way home, parked at Water Board gate (just). Big fence, hole repaired. Down road 200m to gate into filed, new mown corn. To trig easily (as well mown) and then into back of reservoir compound over low fence. Cut back round near to way in through hedge.nordicstar12/08/2012

Nipped up on the way home through break in fence.Glenelg23/03/2012
I too walked through the hole in the hedge by the lay-by. Loads of beer cans and rubbish on the top - must have been a party. Rotherham must be taking notice of this site as the potholes had been repaired!simon and co08/02/2011
Bagged the trig first then very easy access from cultivated field to south side of reservoir complex.Dugswell230/01/2011
Summit in water board compound access, by hole in the hedge just beyond the locked entrance gate.citygent19/01/2011
parked by reservoir gate - gate open so walked in - on way back spotted man in van leaving and locking gate - had to find gap in hedge to get out - suspect I might have been trespassingPhil M13/01/2011
Pothole in the layby is really bad, my car went over it with a real bang. Shame about all the rubbish dumped up the pathway as well. Good view from the top.The Team05/04/2009
Ditto chris creedy.Nice reservoir.electricratman02/06/2008

Came through spinney just North of the reservoir. Fence comes to an end.alwaysinshorts06/03/2008
good views and a trig what more could you want from a topjohnfwoolley22/12/2007
Walked up track thru the gate north of reservoir entrance and thru hedge at the top. Easy and very nice views from top of reservoir, higher than trig point in next field. There are now 2 potholes in the layby!!Nick16/12/2007
Got to top of reservoir easily but thought trig had gone missing until I spotted it's top just sticking out of the nearby cornfield.signyred10/08/2007
