Access via wood and very wet fields, several fence crossing, went back via gates. Reservoir long disused.

No string on the gate today but nettles and thistles were literally a pain

Short walk to Res. Cut string on gate to gain access and was tied in a bow for next visiter!

Access was simple thro field to N of plantation, with a mildly tricky fence to cross to reach the reservoir compound, which was too difficult to access so I didn't bother. Good views south to the Northern fells of the LD Nat Pk.
The plaque on the reservoir compound ....which says: \"Bicton Rural Watersupply, Royston Reservoir, Taylor & Wallin, Civil Engineers, Newcastle-on-Tyne, 1929, Contractors David Thomson & Sons Ltd\"

Went to the trig from the west.The gate was tied with string.It was tricky to undo, but it was well worth it.

Interesting trig on a reservoir, old pumphouse nearby, decent views, brass center still present, access requires fence climbing

No padlock in west gate, and in any case, the iron railings do not run along the southern boundary of this enclosure, only a standard wire and post field fence. Tertiary station pillar completed 23rd April 1952 costing £21.0s.0d. Column in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces 278° west. Vented through north sight hole. Photographed 26/05/2010, GRP.

Nicely protected; the gate is locked again but a Trig-Samaritan has left a wooden gate against the security fence to allow access ;-) Nice view with only the NorthWest sight open.
Rosley Resr ..access by the wooden gate ;-)

Unplanned visit on the day.Approached from the east via the wood having to clear fallen branches to cross the stile.Plodged across the first field (amazing how a sloping hillside can still be waterlogged) got to the top corner and a barbed wire fence.I could see the trig but there appeared to be another two fences to cross so abandoned and went with Unreachable but visible.

We parked directly to the west and I walked across the fields. The trig is in a small reservoir compound with spiked railings but the gate was open so access no problem. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
