A pleasant afternoon walk round Greenfield and Dovestones reservoir

Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Chris Wareing.

6.0 mi


Please note - clocks go back 1 hour on the day of this walk, make sure you set your alarm clocks correctly!

Starting from the train station, we'll walk across Greenfield and up to Dovestones reservoir, hopefully admiring the autumnal conditions! There's a short but moderate climb up to the dam (where the snack van and public conveniences reward you), before we then walk along the reservoir to the sugar cube rock, before coming back through the woods along the valley side and dropping down to the pub for a Sunday afternoon pint at The Clarence (or other nearby establishment!)
