Well it’s the last day of the hols and nice and sunny day so we decided to go for a walk round Tittesworth Reservoir on the southern edge of the Peak District Nation Park. Needless to say we weren’t the only ones, but parking was no problem.
We started out with a picnic near the car park so we didn’t have to carry everything around with us. After we had eaten and cleared up we got ready to set off. The first decision was long walk or short walk. As we have already done the short walk before we decided to part of the long walk.
The first stop was the bird hide. One end of the reservoir is a bird sanctuary 2 hides looking over it. The notice on the door said “please enter quietly” but I decided to be brave and take 3 of the children in to show then what was inside. There was a very friendly couple in there who showed us in their bird books which birds were on the water, and which ones we might see when doing the rest of the walk. Thank to the 2 of them for their patience!
After leaving there we set off round the edge of the main reservoir. Although we only made it to the canoeing / boating centre before little legs started giving up, it was a lovely walk.There is a view across the water to The Roaches. We could just make out the climbers on it.
To finish off we a then to spend 20 minutes in the kids play area there and of course have an ice-cream.
