This walk takes you around Chelker Reservoir and Chelker Windfarm near Addingham in North Yorkshire. It's a very scenic area with the fine views towards the surrounding hills and countryside. The windfarm is notable as only third ever to be installed in their country.
You can extend the walk by picking up the Dales Way just to the east of the reservoir. This can be followed along the River Wharfe to the nearby Bolton Abbey.
