Big Fish bagged this one whilst on his way back from Birmingham Airport, a lovely sunny peaceful day, no problems with access or time. Parked up in the gateway and then popped over the gate.

Easy bag. Trig is visible from the track with just a quick hop over a small wooden gate. If you look closely at my photograph you will see my car and the gate in the background

Parked in the lane to Willesley church. I hopped over the fence and got a couple of photos and a fix – I’d just vacated the site and a Severn Trent Water van arrived – I thought I might have triggered some security device – there were warnings about – so if you make a visit make it quick. Continued to Packington and Ashby. Returned via the Ivanhoe Trail. Not a recommended route unless you like muddy fields – stay on the paths within the forestry.

Hopped over for a quick bag

Easy hop over the gate but I'm sure it will be replaced with a 6ft fence in the future like all other Trigs at Reservoirs. The Cabinet is still beeping.

An interesting location, but no views and traffic noise as others have said. Still just a five-bar gate to climb over. Some beeping coming from one of the instrument cabinets but I don't think my presence caused it.

Easy to find, and quite interesting as the trig is sat on top of a water board reservoir. Not sure if you are allowed access to this one but a quick hop over a padlocked 5 bar gate and a short walk up some steps and there it is. Pretty location but not many views to speak of. Traffic rumble from the nearby A42.

Interesting place for a trig point. We were unsuccessfully hunting for a cache but had forgotten the notes so just looked for the trig.

Even a handrail to the steps for easiest access

Easily spotted from the road, quite a curious location for a trig.

Very civilised access by stone steps. Good all round views.Trig has chamfered edges making it theoretically octagonal. Is this unusual?

Easy hop over gate from lane.

Quick trig with Vix & Co.

I think this pillar is in the best condition I have seen so far. Quick drive by trig between caches too. Did after Cliff's in the Wood.

Pillar in excellent condition complete with all metalwork. Easy access as well! Overlooked by a radio mast, and within earshot of A42, but views in almost all directions. Lots of rabbits around the area, including a family of jet black rabbits.

Nice and easy with close by parking.

easy park next to resr and no problem with gate.
28th Aug 2006 16:04 by jameswameek
Like the earlier logs mention, this one is an easy catch. Hopped over the gate, up some steps and there it is. The views are OK - you can certainly see a long way to the south. Trig in good condition and just off A42 so very accessible. (photo and fb to be added)

Must be one of the easiest resevoirs,park adjacent then over gate,no views.
30th Nov 2005 12:20 by Rhayader_wanderer
access road nice and solid ice was the biggest challenge for this res trig

What a pleasant change to find a reservoir where you can just jump over the gate to get to the trig - even Shane managed it! Plug with indented lettering.

So easy and so close to M42 I am surprised it is not visited more often. So close to my commuting route in fact that I didnt even bother telling my wife I may be a little late home for tea which fortunately I wasnt!

On top of Severn-Trent Willersley Reservoir site. Easily access over gate down a very quiet dead-end lane It's all intact with an O.S. replacement central plug. Very good condition. No really significant views in any direction but a lot of traffic noise from the adjacent A42 - and a very heavy shower to boot!

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, on top of service resr

Another on a reservoir. Undefended so I had a look. Just off a road severed by the A42. Pillar in good condition.

White pillar on grassy mound of Willesley Reservoir of NW Leicestershire Water Board. Easy access from minor road over wooden gate.
