Walk: Abbey Village. A circular walk round the Roddlesworth Reservoirs, walking along the S.W. side of the reservoirs as far as Tockholes Plantation No.3 then returning along the Witton Weavers’ Way on the N.E. side of the reservoirs.
Start Point: Hare & Hounds Pub, Abbey Village Grid Ref: SD 644 244
Distance: 4 miles Ascent: Little
Time: 2 hours    
Weather: Cool and wet
Comments: The walk was mainly on tracks and ideal for the weather. The rivers were very full and the autumn colours made for a very attractive walk. A short extension to the walk could include a visit to Ryal Fold Visitor Centre.
