This walk visits Brownhill Reservoir near Holmfirth.
There's a car park at the southern end of the water where you can start your walk. You can then follow footpaths heading down towards the dam and the adjacent Ramsden Reservoir. There's also a nice country lane running to the east of the lakes. The path sits above the two reservoirs providing fine views down to the two picturesque bodies of water. It's suitable for walkers or cyclists and name Brownhill Lane.
