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.
