Once again, we are being treated to an early summer, so what better way to appreciate it than going for a walk in the beautiful countryside. It’s free, it’s healthy, it’s social and sometimes, it’s on your doorstep 🙂
DiscoDeb and I decided to maximize the sunlight and walk around Tittersworth (or Boobersworth as I like to call it) Reservoir. This is an easy walk that undulates around the edge of the reservoir. The paths are very well looked after and it is very good underfoot. There are two walks around it (Long and short). We took the long walk which was 4.34 miles circular. I don’t know how much shorter the other walk is, but the long walk took us one hour and fifteen minutes. We stopped a couple of times for some photographs but we did keep up quite a brisk pace. As a training walk it does have a couple of steep climbs (these are stepped) but it is definitely easy so don’t be put off.
The reservoir is quite stunning in places especially when you have the backdrop of the Roaches in the distance. There is a tower situated alongside the dam which always reminds me of the James Bond film ‘Goldeneye’. Deb also found a fantastic painted pebble for Leek Rocks. We have placed it on a tree near the bridge if you want to go look for it. Here are some photos and map of the route. Enjoy the sunshine peeps.
