Walk: Belmont Reservoir, Dimple, Delph Reservoir, Longworth Clough, Ornamental Reservoir
Start Point: The Black Dog Inn Belmont Grid Reference: SD 674 158
Distance: 5.5 mls Ascent:  
Time: 2 hours 45 minutes    
Weather: Warm and dry but overcast
Comments: Thirty-four walkers enjoyed fine views, especially across Ornamental Lake towards Belmont and Winter Hill. There were a few gates and easy stiles on mostly well-used paths. However, the sting in the tail was the climb back into Belmont.
