Swinsty Reservoir and Timble

March 14th, 2011
I took the day off for my birthday (13th). Mr B and I drove to Harrogate in the motor. Had a pootle around the shops and then went to nice Italian for lunch called Sasso.
We then went a short distance to Swinsty and parked up in the water board car park. The whole area is overlooked by the sinister golf balls on Menwith Hill.
We did this walk and managed to make it take forever, but the weather was good and although not madly hilly, a good walk to get my eye back into navigation and for Mr B to test out the new boots and his knees. The walk goes along one of the reservoirs, then a beck (lots of mud), up to a farm and up to village of Timble which is very des res.

Building contains some ancient water machinery
