To help keep everyone safe, our car park at this reservoir is closed and we're asking everyone not to visit for a little while - hopefully it won't be for too long. We'll update here when it's back open. For more information please visit our reservoirs page.
Cod Beck Reservoir, completed in 1953, sits above the picturesque town of Osmotherley in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The circular path is wide and well surfaced in entirety and only has one gradual small incline and decline in the northeast corner.
Surrounded by coniferous woodland and SSSI moorland, the reservoir is known to be a vital area for Common Toads who hibernate on the moorland. The water body also supports Brown Trout, Grayling, Bullhead, Eel, Stone loach, Minnow and Lamphrey.
There is car parking to the north of the site and Osmotherley village has public toilets and a small shop.
