Walk: Abbey Village. A circular walk round the Roddlesworth Reservoirs, walking along the N.E. side of the reservoirs, along the Witton Weavers' Way, as far as Tockholes Plantation No.3 then returning along the the S.W. side of the reservoirs.
Start Point: Hare & Hounds Pub, Abbey Village Grid Reference: SD 644 224
Distance: 4 miles Ascent: Little
Time: 2 hours    
Weather: Cold and sunny
Comments: The walk was mainly on tracks and ideal for the weather. The reservoir overflow was completely dry compared to October when we last walked round the reservoirs. Then the water was in full flow. The reservoirs were still partly frozen and there was still evidence of snow even in this sheltered area.
We were only a small group as it was Easter Sunday but we had an enjoyable walk.
