Today’s walk see’s us starting in the village of Greenfield on the outskirts of Oldham, Lancashire however it was formerly in the West Riding’s of Yorkshire.
There is some climbing on this route to reach the reservoirs on the moor, but once up at the reservoirs the way is very clear and on a nice day you can enjoy views of the surrounding crag bound hills.
The walk doesn’t venture too far beyond well-made tracks or well-trodden paths however please do still wear walking boots.
At the reservoir which is an RSPB reserve, we should be rewarded with sightings of plenty of wildfowl so you might want to bring along your binoculars to get a closer view.
