Its re-assuring that that is what you thought, as I too tend to thinks it the master cylinder. Master cylinder is much cheaper than the servo unit!
Now how do I get at it to change it? Looks almost like an engine out job!!!!

Very simple to do that. You would also be well servied by a ring spanned with a gap in the ring. The nuts which hold the brake lines tend to be quite soft metal, I find, and an open ended spanner will damage them. I think it's a 10mm you need.
Now, I seem to remember a requirement to bench blead the master cylinder before installing it as otherwise it may create an air pocket because of the mount angle...
