  • Beautiful place with amazing view. Great for long walk and best for a day trip. You will love the weather even it's raining. Suggestion: Don't forget to carry gloves and beanie. 😃😃
  • Beautiful place to visit and just take a walk to take in the breathtaking scenery, must admit it's the lowest iv'e ever seen the reservoir. And the food at the yorkshire bridge inn is still amazing 👍🥰.
