Mid-July walk - Langsett Reservoir

5.6 mile walk that includes the reservoir, the moors, woods and most importantly a pub! so hopefully something for everyone and mostly off-road!  ..and even a visit to North America! (Farm ruins that they used as tank practice in the war!)

UPDATE: recce done tonight! Thanks to Diane and Linda! Its a bit harder than I remembered sorry.. but worth it for the views! The bit round the reservoir is pretty easy but the uphill bit to the moors is not and its longer than I thought.. so if you're not good with hills you might struggle.. sorry! Dogs will need to be on leads too as there were lambs and grouse on the paths and signs saying "bird nesting - dogs on leads March to July"

Parking and Meet in the Langsett Barn Car Park, if its full, there is another car park further up the main road and the Flouch car park even further up! We will be calling at The Waggon and Horses pub for a well deserved drink at the end but this only has a very small car park so please don't park there.

Thanks.. see you there!

    Thanks for the lovely walk Sarah, for the backmarking and all those that helped recce beforehand. The longish ascent was hardly noticable at the pace that was set. It was an area I had never been to before. This group is great for showing us more of the wonderful area we are lucky to live close to. Lovely to get back to walking again.

    I would just like to say a few thank you’s

    Firstly a big thank you to Sarah for an absolutely lovely walk, you did a great job as walk host, you should be very proud of yourself, and don’t let what happened at lunch time dampen your day you did a fantastic job.
    Thanks also to Linda for doing a fab job back marking
    A big thank you to Sue for the best slice of cake I have had in a long time
    Also thank you to *everyone on the walk your company was first class. Sorry if I did not get to chat to everyone. And finally thank you Pauline for the lift to Brighouse.

    I'm really sorry but I played cricket yesterday evening and pulled my calf muscle turning sharply so I think I will struggle with this today. I'm gutted as I was really looking forward to it.

    will let others have the places as no offer of a lift has come hopefully will get chance to come on other walks soon n

    June 28, 2013

    • Sheila L.

      You hadn't said where you want a lift from! And I suggest you don't give up your place so quickly after putting up your request, there's still 3 weeks to go before the walk Somepeople don't look at the site or their emails everyday.
