High in the Pennines above Wardle village, the area around Watergrove Reservoir includes walking trails with spectacular views, bird watching, fishing and a link to the Pennine Bridleway. The open moorland above Watergrove makes for a more rugged landscape than the lower valleys. The area's mixture of moorland, young woodland, wetland and rough pasture - and the reservoir itself - offers a large variety of habitats and a fascinating wealth of archaeological remains. This area is much appreciated by outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.
