Hurstwood Reservoir

2 miles (3 km)

This circular walk takes you around Hurstwood Reservoir in Burnley.
Start the walk from the public car park in the village of Hurstwood just to the west of the reservoir. It's located just over 2 miles south east from Burnley town centre. From here you can pick up footpaths heading around the water for a distance of just under 2 miles.
The Burnley Way passes the reservoir so there is good scope for extending the walk on this waymarked footpath. If you follow it east you could visit the nearby Gorple Reservoir and Widdop Reservoir for example.
