Beautiful scenery. Very calming walk along the reservoir. I'd like to visit at sunrise or sunset. You can walk to Bamford edge, I chose not to due to inadequate footwear.

Sunday roast and walking around the Reservoir? Why not 😃
I’m a big fan of engineering like this and was amazed that humans can create such technical things which stand the test of time
