Walk Description

Make sure your use the onsite carpark as that where this walk starts and don’t park on the roadside. Follow the path way on the northern side side of the water, which shares the path with the much longer Kirklees Way.

The path skirts the edge of the water and darts in and out of woodland which provides some beautiful plant life especially the bluebells in the spring time. Before turning back towards the car park you will pass by the smaller Bilberry reservoir which has lovely views back across the valley.
