Swinsty and Fewston: 9 January 2011
- 10 miles
- Swinsty Moor … Map of start point
Alistair led us on a superb figure-of-8 walk starting at the ice rink also known as Swinsty Moor car park. We headed south to meet the River Washburn, then followed its banks to Swinsty reservoir and along the shoreline of Swinsty and Fewston reservoirs to Blubberhouses. A clearing in the woodland with a variety of rocks and boulders provided an ideal lunch spot. We carried on alongside the Washburn to Low Dam, returning to Blubberhouses along a higher path, and then down the other side of Fewston reservoir back to the car park, which thankfully had thawed out by this stage.
