Scruffy concrete res in a scruffy compound by side of road - long gone. Didn't get in to look for the bolt - my wife was in the car watching my every move. Any hint of fence climbing brings swift rebuke

Expected nowt, found nowt, therefore not disappointed! One mark for the very odd long vehicle now parked in the compound.

Revisit to check out the Bolt. The Trigonomy verdict is that this is a new bolt not a pillar bolt. I guess the pillar went when the original structure was rebuilt (or the earth and grass stripped off). Bolt is near NE corner, 1m in diagonally. The OS trigs archive says nothing of destruction so I guess the pillar went in late 1980s / early 90s.

No pillar but replaced with a bolt to be found on the co-ords on top of the resvr NW corner furthest from the gate.

Not even a nice pretty reservoir to look at

This is a dismal place on a grey wet January afternoon. I agree with lackofluke. The map shows the trig in the compound, which contains the concrete reservoir surrounded by a crushed stone parking area. There is nowhere for it to hide.

1:25K mapping clearly puts this one in the reservoir compound by the road junction. You can look through the gate and walk around the woodland surrounding the compound and see that the pillar is not on either of the four sides of the reservoir. By climbing on the gate, you can see that the reservoir itself has a flat roof and that the pillar is not up there. I can't believe there's anywhere else a 4ft high concrete pillar could hide in there, so I'm going to stick my head on the chopping block with this one and log it as definitely missing.
The reservoir My GPSr suggested that the site of the pillar was on top of the reservoir, about 20m away from the gate.
