This coming Saturday morning, 11 November, our field visit is a walk around Royd Moor Reservoir. As well as the open water, there are areas of woodland and heath, so lots to see.
We are meeting at 10.00am on Royd Moor Road above Thurlstone. There is parking just off the road where a track leads down to the reservoir. Grid reference SE224041 What3words: ///forest.exhales.depending
Avid photographers will be pleased to hear that the what3words for the reservoir itself is: ///perfectly.snaps.local . Couldn’t be better!
Royd Moor Road is above Thurlstone. You can get to it from Thurlstone itself, but we think the roads are much easier by taking the road from Millhouse Green signposted Royd Moor, off the A628 from Penistone. Once at Royd Moor Hill viewpoint (highest point) go straight on down Royd Moor Road and the car park is on your left.
The paths are ok after all the rain but a little muddy in places so boots, wellingtons or sturdy shoes are advisable, warm clothes are good too!
