Redbrook Reservoir

5 miles (8 km)

This walk visits Redbrook Reservoir and Black Moss Reservoir in Kirklees.
There's some roadside parking at the northern end of the lake. You can then follow footpaths south east to link up with the Standedge Trail. Follow the trail west and it will take you past Warcock Hill before turning south east to visit Black Moss Reservoir and Swellands Reservoir.
The route then returns to the start point on the same paths.
You can extend the walk by heading north to Marsden Moor and climbing Pule Hill for some fine views over the area. March Haigh Reservoir and the fine viewpoint at Buckstone Edge can also be found on the moor.
