We’ve been busy this week creating 3 new walks to add to the website – Langsett Reservoir, Goit Stock Falls and Guiseley Beck. All great walks to take in autumn (or winter).
Langsett Reservoir, near the villages of Langsett and Upper Midthorpe, supplies water to Sheffield and Barnsley. The reservoir started construction in 1898 and is now managed by Yorkshire Water. It has a total capacity of 1,408 million gallons of water. It is also the site of the North America farm ruins which was used as target practice during World War II.
Go to the Langsett Reservoir Walk
This walk takes you through a wonderful valley that is rich with relics from the Industrial Revolution. You even walk past a large chimney in a field which looks rather out of place and was left behind after a fire destroyed the building.
Go to the Goit Stock Falls and Wood Walk
This walk by Guiseley Beck and into Spring Wood offers a lovely autumnal walk, though it is advisable that you take wellies – particularly during wet spells. For any train spotters out there, a train line runs through the wood which offers several vantage points.
