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.
Ogden reservoir is managed by Calderdale Council and features wonderful scenery with a babbling brook heading down Ogden Clough ravine. The paths around the reservoir are wide with only small and short inclines and declines. Those desiring a more challenging walk can follow the path up on to Ovenden Moor Wind Farm. When visiting, please pay for parking (on Ogden Ln, Halifax HX2 8XZ) at the Visitor Centre which stocks cold and warm drinks, snacks and ice cream. The Visitor Centre also features toilets which are also managed by Calderdale Council. Those who don’t fancy a walk at all can simply enjoy an ice cream on the bench looking out over the water.
