About the event

Situated on the edge of Oldham and the Peak District National Park, Dove Stone Reservoir is a spectacular area popular with visitors and for family days out.  A picturesque spot, the main reservoir has its own sailing club, a permanent orienteering course, an extensive network of footpaths and good links to areas of open access moorland.  An easy access path makes it simple for the whole family (wheelchair and pushchair accessible see below for details) to take a stroll round the reservoir, stopping on the way at Chew Brook to explore the rocks and paddle in the stream. For the adventurous the site includes two more reservoirs to walk round, Greenfield and Yeoman Hey, from which you can explore Saddleworth moor and the crags above  Pause for a picnic at Ashway Gap and admire the peregrine falcons, where the RSPB Date with Nature team are on hand (Thursday – Sunday) with telescopes to help you get a closer look, plus quizzes and badge making activities on sunny weekends and bank holidays.  Watch out for wildlife of other kinds from mountain hares to mallards, before enjoying an ice cream and the stunning views across the reservoir to the South Pennine hills.

Car parking costs £4
