Grimwith 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. 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.

Grimwith reservoir provides stunning views of the adjacent moors, the valley and the lower Yorkshire Dales. There are plenty of opportunities for budding photographers to take a snap of the wildlife, rolling hills or sailing boats gliding across the waters.

The walk is 4.5 miles long and features a mostly well surfaced path with a few unsurfaced areas which can be muddy. There are no steps or stiles but there are some steep inclines to climb and descend.

The car park features accessible toilets. Those not fancying a walk, can simply park up and enjoy the panoramic views across the reservoir.
