The Circuit of Dovestones Reservoir

Dovestones Reservoir,not far from Oldham, is a popular place for a family day out. This fairly level walk is on well constructed tracks suitable for buggies as long as you can negotiate the kissing gates; there are no stiles. Pay-and-display parking and basic facilities (toilets, refreshment vans in season) mean that you need to get there early to find a parking spot, enjoy the scenery and have a chance of seeing the peregrines on the cliffs above the RSPB Reserve.
