7 people attending
33 places left
Welcome to Part III of ‘A Trio of Reservoir Walks’. The final walk in this series of OutdoorLads walks will take us around all three large reservoirs: Entwistle, Wayoh and Jumbles.
There will be a mixture of terrains starting with a relatively leisurely flat walk around Entwistle, before the more challenging Wayoh and Jumbles, being completed in one lengthy loop.
We will stop off for a short while to enjoy Jumbles and have a summer solstice picnic. There will also be time for a coffee break and some photo opportunities.
After passing the water plantation on Wayoh on our home stretch, we will walk along the hillside paths – uphill, before reaching the final stretch of the walk which takes us back via the ‘Strawbury Duck’, where we can stop off in this lovely, dog-friendly country house/restaurant and B&B. Feel free to enjoy a guest ale or some fresh home-cooked food.
This is a dog-friendly walk so please bring your pooches along.
Please also message me if you have any questions.
