Comments: From the pub we walked along the east side of Wayoh Reservoir. At the end we climbed up to the Strawbury Duck pub and across the fields to Entwistle Reservoir. We then walked around this and and back under the viaduct and along the west side of Wayoh. The walk was mainly on good tracks through woodland with lovely views across the water. 20 people took part.
