A walk around the lake and through the woods is an ideal way to unwind alone, with friends, or even with the children if they are interested in seeing wildlife and exploring beneath the trees -- and what child wouldn't be? Ogden Water is easy to find and only a short distance from Halifax just off the main Keighley Road.... More

Great for walking, lots of different paths, great views if you head up high. Feels like you are miles from anywhere. Stunning

We visit Ogden waters often! As we only live 20 mins walk away! We've walked round most times of the day& evening! We always enjoy the walk!! We spent 3hrs bilberry picking! Parking a bit difficult at busy times! But the lovely walk round makes up for it.

Ogden water is a beautiful attraction in Yorkshire! My pup loves it! Great for walking dogs and loads of parking would definitely recommend going!

Great walk which can either be made short by sticking to the path around the water or extended by heading up into the woods or even where the windmills where! Great in all weather too as long as your wrapped up, plenty of parking only costing 50p although the road surface is not ideal with a lot of pot holes... More

First discovered this place 3-4 years back in my quest to find challenging walks for me and my dogs. This place has it all. One can simply walk around the reservoir, nice and flat and easy going– but as a owner of two large dogs, I would say unless you go early morn (especially on a weekend), be prepared to... More

Visited on a week day, small car park, was too busy to stay. Would advise to arrive early if travelling by car

Don't really want to tell you how lovely it is here as it could become too busy. Great for a 1 mile walk round the Reservoir, or longer if you venture up into the woods and onto the moors. We usually finish at the shop with an ice cream or hot soup, lovely people there to talk to.
