Pretty views

Nice hour and a half flat walk around the reservoir. Plenty of spots for bramble picking along the way and popular for the dog walkers.

There wasn’t any car park so we parked in nearby round wood and stopped afterwards for lunch

It began its built in early 1860s. It has many trails and a large water place. Dam has good structured and deep wood paths for pleasant walks.

Hiking
Feb 2020 • Friends
We done an 18 km hike around the lakes today and I would definitely recommend it, I took my friend who isn't really a Walker or hiker but she was well able for it, its flat so no hills to surprise her so she managed very well, bring your own packed lunch and drink if you are going to do more than 10 km, if you don't want to so that their are a few pubs in round wood village that you can get food in.
Lovely scenery and a chance to get out with friends into the fresh air is always a win win.

The upper lake takes2 hours
Oct 2019 • Friends
We walked along the path around the upper lake and around the upper part of the lower reservoir. This took 2 hours at an easy pace. The path is good and mostly dry.
There are beautiful views of trees, water and wildlife.

The four looped walks are lovely. Well laid out and suitable for all ages on foot or on bicycles. You can spend as long as you like there is this beautiful peaceful place walking all the loops or some of them

The Full Circuit
Apr 2019 • Friends
A group of us completed the full circuit of both the upper and lower reservoirs today and had a most enjoyable time. Despite the odd shower and strong NW winds, the conditions underfoot were fine with only the odd puddle to be avoided.
It took about three and half hours to walk the 15.5km and that included about half an hour of stops. The combination of natural scenery and Victorian engineering was intriguing especially the views over the treatment plant at the southern end. There is parking for about 15 cars beside the main entrance gates on the R765.
