Our Walks

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 (apart from Crult Moor at at Scammonden reservoir) so visitors can walk around them as long as social distancing rules are observed.

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

We are not giving any permissions for events on Yorkshire Water land at the moment. We will be will be reviewing this again soon and look forward to welcoming events back when it is safe to do so.

We look after 72,000 acres of land in Yorkshire, spanning the North York Moors, The Wolds, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and some of the best National Parks in the country. Explore our walking routes here, all of which are free for you to enjoy!
