So if you see a grey-haired rambler mumbling to himself and taking photos every 100 yards or so, do stop and say hello. Having said that, I was once stopped in my tracks by a very irate walker who demanded to know why I’d photographed him – albeit at about 50 yards – and insisting I delete the image. I’m still not sure what he had to hide, but I wasn’t about to argue!
Walk 13 is a five-mile circular route around Errwood Reservoir. It can get a bit muddy on the far side of the reservoir, but there are some wonderfully panoramic views to enjoy.
The walk can easily be extended by visiting the ruins of Errwood Hall. And for those with energy still to spare, they could also take in the easier and shorter walk around Fernilee Reservoir.
