Gentle walk around the reservoir is Really pleasant. Dog walkers are easy to find and dogs are not in danger. There are wooded areas , path and grass walks.

What a lovely walk. Beautiful and tranquil. Took our little Westie Monty who loved the 2.5miles of off the lead fun. Great fellow dog walkers. Was a great find. Will definitely return in all the other seasons to see the difference. Very impressed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Lots of walkers visit this route around the reservoir. Up to 50 fir trees to be decorated for Christmas. Great place for picnic near footbridge at head of reservoir sitting on large stones.

We parked in the small car park, reached by going down a very bumpy track ... Popular with dog walkers and joggers - and lots of views of the water.

Entwistle Reservoir is a lovely place and the walk is an easy level walk for all abilities. Unfortunately it has become a "Mecca" for dog walkers, with some of them allowing their pooches to run wild, leaving their piles of muck and doggy bags littered...More

Lovely walks around the area and nice local pubs too. Be prepared for the muddy sections though and can be quite slippy if walking is your thing.
