This walk visits Gorpley Clough and Reservoir in Todmorden. The small reservoir and woodland area are located just west of the town. It's a fairly quiet place making for a pleasant and peaceful walk.
You can start your walk from the Gorpley Clough car park off the A61 just west of Todmorden. From here you can pick up footpaths heading south west through the woodland of Gorpley Clough. On the way you'll pass the scenic Walker's Waterfall before coming to the small reservoir. Here you can enjoy some waterside footpaths before heading back on the same paths.
