Walk Description

This route is a pair of circular walks which are linked by the Wigtwizzle Bridleway. This was formally opened in April 2014. The project was managed by Steel Valley Project (SVP) staff, with work carried out by SVP volunteer trainees supporting the contractor, Frost Plant Hire. The route originally came from a suggestion by Terry Howard who worked in the woodlands in the 60′s and 70′s. It is also known as ‘Lucky’s Lane.’ You will walk on Yorkshire Water permissive paths (woodland bordering reservoirs) and other good quality paths.
