Since the government guidelines have changed, we’ve been working hard to devise a plan to keep everyone safe while enjoying our beautiful reservoirs. 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.
On the outskirts of Leeds, Eccup reservoir has a circular walk is ideal for families with plenty to see along the way. The route passes through woodlands and the quaint village of Eccup, over a dam and alongside a local golf course. The reservoir is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is nationally important for birds which is why it is especially important to stick to the paths and view nature from afar. You may also see the unmistakable red kite, recently saved from extinction in the UK.
