Please follow any local warning signs and keep away from the edge of the banks of the reservoir.

 There is only a raised kerb and not a rail or safety barrier around the reservoir. Therefore, the walk is not suitable for toddlers and very young children.

Watch out for fishermen throwing lines and ensure that your approach is noted by them
