Parked on Bryn Bragl. Over outer and inner security gates. Walked part way round reservoir perimter inside the fencing, then up and over the top. No knowing now where original high ground was, but assume reservoir was built on it.jonglew05/01/2017
From Princess of Wales hospital. Walked around as much of reservoir as possible. High point possibly fenced within school grounds to E of reservoir.welshyboyo09/12/2016
As per Dusty E side of resr, also minor summit in school playing field nearby could be slightly higher. Unclear where natural HP would have been and whether inside or outside compound. Head over summit rule invokedRHW24/10/2015
Managed to walk all the way round reservoir compound. Highest point I could find was to the east of compound adjacent to Primary School playing field at SS92228048. In the houses on Rhiw Las it gave the impression of being lower but I am happy to be proved wrong.Dusty05/07/2015
