Ramsden Reservoir sits just within the Peak District National Park boundary, offering the usual rugged charm that the Peak District does. Use our free car park to the east of the reservoir and enjoy the circular walk which take you over steep uneven ground (walking boots are essential!) and offers stunning views of the top of Holme Moss Valley. Those looking for a less challenging walk can follow the vehicle track up to Riding Wood and Yateholme reservoirs, where there is no public access, but the reservoirs can be seen from the track.
