The walk will proceed in a clockwise direction round the reservoir through the SSSI nature reserve of the Eyebrook Fishery estate before emerging after about 2 and a half miles onto the quiet local roads to complete the 4.6 mile circuit. Very many thanks to Ifor Jones and Eyebrook Trout Fishery. This is probably the only day this year that the Eyebrook estate will be open to for public access.
