Our reservoirs

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 these reservoirs so visitors can walk around them as long as social distancing rules are observed.

The following reservoir car parks are open:

Our other car parks remain closed. Please only visit these reservoirs if you live within walking distance. We will continue to assess our other car parks over the next couple of weeks and we’ll provide updates here.
