Harlow Carr-Beaver Dyke Reser-voirs-Norwood-Swinsty & Fewston Reservoirs-Blubberhouses


Today’s B-walk starts close to the entrance to Harlow Carr Gardens where the coach will drop us off. The walk then takes the same route as the A-walk, From Harlow Carr gardens. Passing through an-other woodland, we take tracks via four farms to walk by Beaver Dyke reservoirs and along further paths to descend to our lunch stop. The SUN INN at Norwood is a large pub very popular with walkers, bikers, foodies and drinkers with a good se-lection of beers and food. After lunch we descend to and cross the dam of Swinsty reservoir which we walk along, before crossing the dam of Fewston reservoir. The final stretch of the walk involves walking along the banks of the Fewston reservoir to reach Blubberhouses at the end of the walk.
