Blackmoorfoot Reservoir

2 miles (3 km)

This short walk visits Blackmoorfoot Reservoir in Huddersfield. The reservoir is located a couple of miles south west of Huddersfield town centre. You can stroll along the water and then follow a bridleway through the countryside to Crosland Edge and the little village of Helme.
The reservoir is surrounded by attractive woodland, countryside and views of the Yorkshire Hills. Also look out for migrating birds that visit the reservoir.
If you continue south from the reservoir you will soon come to the delightful Mount St Bernard Abbey. Here you will find a wonderful Cistercian monastery surrounded by peaceful grounds with lovely gardens.
The Ivanhoe Way and Charnwood Forest long distance trails both pass close to the reservoir so these are both good options for further exploration of the area on foot.
