Since the government guidelines have changed, we’ve been working hard to devise a plan to keep everyone safe while enjoying our beautiful reservoirs. We’ve reopened the car parks at this reservoir so visitors can walk around them as long as social distancing rules are observed.
To help direct visitors, we’ve installed some new signs that are there for everyone to follow so please take a moment to read them.
All of our toilet facilities are still closed at these reservoirs so please be mindful of this when visiting.
Looking out over Emley Moor, Ardsley is a picturesque, urban-fringe reservoir less than 5 miles from Wakefield. Ardsley is a delightful short walk at only 1.5 miles long with flat, surfaced paths the full way around. Park up at our free car park (Haigh Moor Rd, Tingley, Wakefield WF3 1EE) and enjoy the West Yorkshire charm!
