Digley and Ramsden Reservoirs - Sunday 11th August

Post  Steve M on Sun Jul 14, 2013 8:21 pm

Sunday 11th August - Digley and Ramsden Reservoirs (nr Holmfirth)

This is a four and half hour walk which takes us uphill and down dale through the beautiful Holme Valley, taking in Digley and Ramsden reservoirs, and the Pennine villages of Holmbridge and Holme. Expect some rugged paths and 600 metres of ascent on this 8.5 mile walk in this lovely part of West Yorkshire.

Details:-

Meet at Yorkshire Water car park at Digley Quarry, Digley Royd Lane, Holmbridge, Nr Holmfirth at 10.0 for 10.15 start. Take A6024 Woodhead Road in centre of Holmfirth, then after 1.6 miles turn right at The Old Bridge Tavern (sp Digley Reservoir) and follow this road for about 1/2 a mile until you reach Digley Reservoir and the car park.

A lovely walk today with bits of everything, including some of my favourite types of terrain to walk in, woodland and open moorland. Plenty of wonderful scenery to look as far as the eye could see, including a waterfall in the distance. It was lovely to meet Claire today, hopefully we'll see you again soon. Thanks to Carol and Steve for suggesting the pub at the end, and big thanks to Steve and Andrea for the lift, much appreciated.

Well the weather held out, and although it was a bit windy, it could have been a lot worse.

As Neil says, this is a lovely part of the world to walk in, and the purple heather made it even more beautiful than it normally is. Some nice reservoirs and streams also made the walk even more interesting.

It was nice to have Claire along for the first time and that she enjoyed the walk enough to come again with us soon.

I thought I would be suffering after the walk seeing as its been 3 weeks since I last did one, but thankfully not Smile 

As Steve and Neil have said it was a lovely place to walk, and the views were fantastic.

It was nice to meet the other walking group and have some friendly banter with them.....they were from Manchester, but that cant be helped shame
