Walk Description

From Ramsden Reservoir Car Park, turn right on the road and after a short while, turn left at the large blue Yorkshire Water sign for Ramsden. Follow this path as it turns sharp right to cross the reservoir embankment – looking right to see Brownhill Reservoir – and then sharp right again to walk away from the reservoir.

Soon, at the waymarked post signed “Kirklees Way Public Footpath” carry straight on along the boundary and cross over the stile. Head right to walk up the slight incline of Netherley, and then turn right to follow the boundary to the corner. Turn left and follow the clear path to Holme Wood Lane.

Turn left and follow the road around to the right, and then around to the left to walk along the north edge of Yateholme Reservoir.

Continue walking on the road and you reach the north embankment of Riding Wood Reservoir. Follow the road as it turns left but turn right almost immediately to walk up the walled track opposite the house. Keep to the left of the junctions and head through the wood. As you emerge, ignore the road to the right and continue straight on along the footpath, then taking a left turn to walk along another walled track. This track meets a road, and here turn left to return to the car park.
