It certainly doesnt look like that now, I was up there a few weeks ago

Josh, the 'bottle' was built to commemorate the Reform Act of 1832, the act was made to change the electoral system of England which included allowing more people to vote.

I think it's located at the top of Parbold Hill near to where the cars park facing the restaurant.

The bottle is located about 100 yards down Parbold Hill on the left hand side. There is a small dirt road and you can access the site by this track.

Correct Alan H, there are two gates next to each other the entrance to the 'bottle' is through the second one, 'The Millennium Path'

I think it was rebuilt and possibly also relocated about 30 years ago.
