Walk: The Wayoh and Entwistle reservoirs
Start Point: The Chetham Arms, Chapeltown Grid Reference: SD 732 157
Distance: 6 miles Ascent: 300 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: Weather was wonderful; pleasantly warm with great visibility.

An unbelievable turnout of 40 ramblers. The walk was largely on firm paths around the reservoirs  through wooded areas where the autumn leaves provided a magic carpet of sublime views; nature at it's very best. Even the reservoirs were so still and mirror like that one could do nothing but admire the reflections of trees, people and the criss crossing of aeroplane vapours.
