Walk leader to meet at walk start

A circular walk which takes a tour of the reservoirs within the Bradshaw Valley, just north of Bolton.
 
We set off from Bromley Cross station, heading north towards Jumbles Country Park and along the western edge of reservoir, after which we start a short ascent, initially through woodland and then a hay meadow onto Turton Tower. Beyond the tower we head north west along the Witton Weavers Way for a sustained but gradual ascent, followed by a short descent leading to the second reservoir Turton & Entwistle, where we stop for lunch.
 
After lunch we continue beyond Entwistle, through woodland and onto the northern tip of Wayoh Reservoir, following the path, with good views, all along it's eastern banks. Leaving the reservoir it's then onto Turton Bottoms, the cobbled streets and a pleasant walk along Bradshaw Brook and back to the point where we left Jumbles Country Park. This time we walk along the eastern edge of the reservoir, through Ousel Nest Meadows and back to the station.
