About this walk

A flat, wooded reservoir walk, quiet and peaceful in the winter months and fairly busy on a hot day.This walk has seen various improvements recently including new paths and better drainage but it is a work in progress!There are sheep in surrounding fields but no e on route itself. I keep my dog on the lead until I get through the gate at the end of the dam.There is a car park on the main road near a bus stop

    Fabulous walk, but crossing the dam might be challenging if your human doesn’t like heights!
