Join us for a wander round the Dovestones reservoir trail with regular stops to learn about the fascinating history of the valley before its development for water storage. Our knowledgeable walk leader will talk about the industrial heritage of the site, the infrastructure of the reservoirs, water treatment strategy, local landmarks and a brutal early 19th century murder mystery!

Meet at the main car park.

Please note: While children are welcome on all our events, those under the age of 8 may not find it of great interest. Sorry, no dogs allowed.

Members can park free in the main car park with their membership card on display in the windscreen. All events are weather dependent and may be cancelled at short notice in the event of unsuitable conditions.
