To help keep everyone safe, our car park at this reservoir is closed and we're asking everyone not to visit for a little while - hopefully it won't be for too long. We'll update here when it's back open. For more information please visit our reservoirs page.
Winscar reservoir was built in the 1850s with further works taking place in the 1970s to improve the capacity. The impressive reservoir can be observed from the bridleway (Route 68) which runs between the two free Yorkshire Water car parks on Windle Edge and Broad Hill. The bridleway is a wide tarmac track and is flat for the entire duration.
