On a cold Monday morning in late February, with a forecast of snow, we set out for a 10.5 mile walk round Leighton and Roundhill Reservoirs near Masham, Yorkshire. The tracks were brilliant and with the icy weather, were hard underfoot. The occasional flurries of snow in the biting wind made for an interesting walk!
Along the route are some fantastic views down in to the Nidd Valley and out towards Scar House reservoir in the distance, and nearer the end of the walk some of the walkers had a clamber on some big rocks – engaging the inner child.
There is quite a spectacular sink at Roundhill reservoir as you turn for home.
And after the walk – a trip to the Bistro at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham for a Riggwelter burger, a few glasses of wonderful beer, and fruit cake and Wensleydale for after – Yorkshire heaven!
