Brought friends who had not visited before and they were very happy with the walk. Two and a half miles is a perfect distance for me nowerdays!! And on the flat (in the main). Just the job.

Living close by is a real bonus. Lovely evening or weekend walk. Not idea with a wheelchair. Easier with a pram although there is still a steep up and down hill to tackle.

Nice long walk around this reservoir. It isn't possible to walk over the dam of the reservoir but aside from this you can walk close to the water. There are toilets and a cafe near the Bradshaw side of the reservoir.

An amazing area to take a stroll around one of, or all three well maintained reservoirs dependant on how long you have available. Spectacular scenery. Plenty of room for cyclist. Walkers would be advised to wear boot some description when its rained due to mud.

I have 2 cocker spaniels who love water and they love it here. I takes me about an hour to meander around the edge of the reservoir while the dogs are in and out of the water. It's very scenic and generally a well mannered...More

Pleasant easy walk, good access, parking and a coffee available after the walk. Good viewing points and seating available if you wish to stop to take photos across the water.

It's not really that sort of place as it's more of a country walk. A picnic would be preferable
Are we allowed to have a small BBQ party at the park?

Does anyone know if there is a regular bus service (coming/going central Bolton) stopping here? Am hoping to visit with my young child but haven't had much luck searching online.

I believe a skeleton bus service passes the top of the jumbles. You could ring Bury / Bolton bus station for details of buses Good luck
