Where is this walk?

Keighley Moor

April 21, 2017

Keighley Moor Reservoir lies to the west of Keighley and is set upon some rough moorland. The walk I prefer comes from the south and follows a section of the Millennium Way.

The Walk

I always like a purpose to a walk and in this case I was keen to explore Keighley Moor Reservoir which, from the map, looked a peaceful spot in an area I know nothing about. And so it was. A clear and warm spring day had brought the birds out (not that I could recognize what they are) so I explored around the fringes of the reservoir, finding a peaceful seat for my apple and mars bar. I had passed some shooting butts and this is obviously a popular moor for shooting but not at this time of the year.

The 2nd part of the walk was through farmland (plenty of lambs) and a pretty little dell at Newsholme. I was surprised to come across a Canadian pilot’s was memorial on the walk which is clearly kept well. All in all an enjoyable few hours with far reaching views over Bronte Country

I started the walk at The Grouse country Inn for a purpose….

Navigation Tips Keighley Moor

On leaving the road near the start of the walk the path is not particularly clear. However it runs alongside an obvious boundary which always make for useful navigation aids.

    Did this walk today 10Feb 2019
    Very peaceful and quiet, blustery on the top around the resovoir and a bit boggy
    No sign of lambs yet but plenty of sheep
    I enjoyed this one, and the lovely pint at the end :-)?
