Fewston Reservoir

Since the government guidelines have changed, we’ve been working hard to devise a plan to keep everyone safe while enjoying our beautiful reservoirs. This weekend we’ve reopened the car parks at six of our reservoirs so visitors can walk around them as long as social distancing rules are observed.

The following reservoir car parks are open:

Our other car parks remain closed. Please only visit these reservoirs if you live within walking distance. We will continue to assess our other car parks over the next couple of weeks and we’ll provide updates here. 

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.

  • Please maintain social distancing when walking around the reservoir
  • Please follow designated paths. The paths are there to keep you and our key workers safe.
  • Some of our paths may be closed off. This is because our key workers need to access them and they will be clearly signposted that they are closed.
  • Make sure you take any litter home with you and do not light any BBQs or fires.
  • If the car park is full, please do not park on verges or on the road as this causes traffic issues.

All of our toilet facilities are still closed at these reservoirs so please be mindful of this when visiting.

Situated in the charming Washburn valley, sharing an embankment with Swinsty Reservoir, Fewston is popular with walkers and runners. Cyclists and horse-riders can also make use of their own permitted tracks in the surrounding woodlands. Make use of the accessible toilets at Swinsty Moor car park with accessible parking here and at Blubberhouses car park (all of our car parks are free by the way!). There are no steps, stiles or gates and the reservoir features wide, well surfaced paths with only a few moderate inclines. Visit our Fisheries page for information about fishing on Fewston.
