Walk Description

Make sure you park at the car park off Haworth road and then take the leafy woodland path through to the first of two reservoirs. The woodland is home to lots of wildlife so keep those eyes peeled for squirrels as well as Owls. The walk can be extended to the second of the two reservoirs to make it a little more challenging on the legs but this is as easy to navigate as the first one. There are plenty of freshwater shrimp to spy in the water as well as plant life such as the purple loosestrife. Take the stroll at your own pace and make sure you enjoy the peaceful break from suburban life.
