Butterley Reservoir

5 miles (8 km)

This walk uses part of the Kirklees Way to visit three pretty reservoirs on the splendid Marsden Moor Estate in the Peak District.
The walk starts from the large village of Marsden near Huddersfield. It sits at theconfluence of the River Colne and the Wessenden Brook and has an interesting milling history as a major centre for the production of cloth. You can easily pick up the Kirklees Way at Marsden train station and follow it south to Butterley Reservoir. The trail continues to Blakeley Reservoir and Wessenden Reservoir with lovely views over the Wessenden Valley. You can extend the walk by continuing along the Pennine Way to the nearby Digley Reservoir. If you head west you will soon come to Swellands Reservoir and Black Moss Reservoir.
The Huddersfield Narrow Canal also runs through Marsden so you can pick this up and head towards Huddersfield or Greater Manchester.
