This walk starts at the car park for Jumbles Reservoir. It runs alongside the reservoir, past a bridge and alongside a brook which flows into the reservoir. It then makes a short but steep climb up the hillside and along a farm track to reach the edge of a small reservoir. The climb continues up and over the hillside before dropping down to the village of Hawkshaw. It then follows part of the Village Link and climbs again, using part of an old packhorse route, to reach the village of Affetside, passing a small waterfall along the way. It continues along Watling Street, part of an ancient Roman road. The final section is downhill through a farmyard and down several fields to reach a road. After crossing the road it returns to the start point, crossing several rickety stiles and alongside the brook which flows out of the reservoir. It passes several fishing lodges and through small hamlets ('Folds'). The majority of the paths are marked with public footpath signs. Road names are added for clarity for GPS users.
