Linacre Reservoir - Old Brampton - Wigley Walk

WalkExplorer

Starting from the old school, we go down the cul-de-sac lane almost opposite. This takes us down a well-used but hemmed-in path to find a deep gorge eventually on the left. Crossing a ford and a stream, the path then takes us into the Linacre Reservoir area. Delightful, well-maintained paths circle the lakes. There are good views for photography on the route. We then reach the ranger post where toilets and hot handwashing water will be found. Onward, we round the last lake and make our way through Canadian-style forest back to the top lake. Leaving the beautiful scenery behind, we walk through meadows to Old Brampton. Crossing the road, we walk through a cultivated fruit-growing area, through a farm and then take a bridleway back to the car.
