Three Reservoirs Walk - April 23rd

Posted 23/4/2016

A fine 10 miles walk today in the spring sunshine on what proved to be an energetic 10 miles walk around the reservoirs in the Stocksbridge Valley.

After walking through woodland alongside Langsett Reservoir onto Hingcliff Common to North America Farm we emerged through Thick Woods to the main road to the Strines.

A long steady plod uphill followed passing Midhope Reservoir en-route. Our ascent continued to the edge of Whitwell Moor where we took our lunch break was taken.


A steady descent into Stocksbridge followed, walking across the dam wall at Underbank Reservoir and crossing into Sheephouse Woods to follow a disused railway path back to Langsett.

Well done to our party of 20 people who walked today, particularly David Kirk who notched up 200 miles walked year to date today and especially Lisa Roper who has walked 104 miles with DVWG in just 132 days !!!!
