Cod Beck Reservoir & the High Road

M 012
  • Lovely circuit of the reservoir
  • Take in the views above Osmotherley
  • Picnic at the bridge near Sheepwash


Picture 1 of 6

Barely a mile north of Osmotherley lies Cod Beck Reservoir, an idyllic spot in good weather (it snowed when I was last there ) with woodland scenery mixing with views of open moorland, farmland and of course the village of Osmotherley. Cod Beck Reservoir is a renowned beauty spot and often popular so I would suggest taking the high level Cleveland Way to Scarth Nick with its excellent views before dropping back to the bridge at Sheepwash and returning via the western shores – prettier on a good woodland path.

nb: The photos I took of Cod Beck are in a snow storm – it is not usually like that!

Recommend: St Peter’s Church in Osmotherley dates back to Norman times and well worth a visit.
