Walk Description

This walk around Langsett Reservoir extends beyond the basic loop around the reservoir. It combines woodland with views across open, rugged moorland. Much of the walk is on Yorkshire Water land and is very well signed and maintained. There is a steady climb from Langsett Reservoir to the top of the moor, but the views are well worth the walk. We also include a visit to North America.
