Add Watergrove Reservoir to your Itinerary

Walk in the park by Ed Swinden

High in the Pennines above Wardle village, the area around Watergrove Reservoir includes walking trails with spectacular views, bird watching, fishing and a link to the Pennine Bridleway. The open moorland above Watergrove makes for a more rugged landscape than the lower valleys. The area's mixture of moorland, young woodland, wetland and rough pasture - and the reservoir itself - offers a large variety of habitats and a fascinating wealth of archaeological remains. This area is much appreciated by outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.
