Ogden is my favourite place to go for a walk. Lovely views around the reserve and lots of different ways to walk! A lot of space for parking too! I go multiple times a week and always recommend it to people!

Pleasant. Toilets hit and miss. Cafe expensive. Local public houses very good, if open! Don't drive, but parking and congestion could be an issue

Young or old you will find a walk that suits you here. My 90+ dad can walk on the pathway close to the water no problem. Little children can be pushed round in strollers and older kids can explore further afield. There’s a lovely little...More

Went for a walk with my friend and my mother and simply loved the view. Windmills were the icing on the cake. Absolutely recommended place.

Lovely place to walk the dogs, lots of people about also. Not great for parking but if you go early enough (on weekends) then you manage to get parked.

We didn’t do all of the walls, just round the reservoir, but it was really good. Being a rather damp day the place was not heaving with walkers, although the car parks were very busy. The water levels being so low we’re quite concerning, but...More
