Key Areas / Routes

The raised track north from the car park gives good views of the reservoir along the east bank. At the northern end a public footpath off to the left then crosses a bridge/causeway over the northwest arm before heading back south along the west bank. Viewing is restricted along this track due to a thick hedgerow but there are small gaps and two gateways.
