Terrain & gradient
Varied terrain – the reservoir path is wide and well surfaced with minimal steep gradients. The remainder of the route includes sections over rough, uneven ground and includes steps and stiles. Some of the walk can be boggy and muddy at wetter times of year. Includes a section of steep climbing (about 250m long). We recommend sturdy walking boots.
How to get there
You can use our free car park (HX6 4LR) which is just off the A58 (Rochdale Road), at the north-east corner of the reservoir (point 1).
Travel 2.5 miles west along the A58 until you reach the left turn into the car park.
Travel 5 miles east along the A58, until you reach the right turn into the car park.
By public transport
New Inn Cottage Bus Stop is on the A58, less than 100m from the car park entrance. Buses from both directions stop at the same spot.
