I’ve not been able to do much walking this summer so it was good to get out on a smashing late summer afternoon, with temperatures above 20c. It felt more like early August than September!
I think there are five Longridge reservoirs in total and we went by three of them today, Dilworth Upper Reservoir and Spade Mill Reservoirs 1 & 2. The remaining Longridge reservoirs that I will explore another time are the two Alston Reservoirs.
The route is circular and less than three miles so can be done in about an hour. Unfortunately the reservoirs are a bit hard to see because they are built up above the roads, but there are sections where you are elevated and get a decent view. I only had my phone camera with me so there is not the usual plethora of photos that accompanies this walk!
