Pleasant walk by the reservoir. Quite bracing but lovely to be able to get out; wide paths most of the time; interesting to see the waterfowl. In between lockdowns we were able to visit the pub across the road for something to eat and use the facilities. The cafe nearby is shut for refurbishment.

Enjoyed a pleasant walk through the fields and undergrowth surrounding the reservoirs before taking them in up close. Especially delightful on a clear, bright day.

Appropriate footwear if you’re going next to that waterside is a must!

In the summer the ground is firm and dry, this makes walking very enjoyable. There is plenty of wildlife around, al you have to do is look. You don't need to park in the pay & display car park, instead park further away and extend your walk a little.

Another lovely walk around one of the recommended trails around the reservoirs, this time just a short 3.5 miler, and although the towpath on the Wendover arm was a bit muddy, it was perfectly passable without needing to swim through puddles. perfect way to pass a Lockdown2 morning!

All 3 reservoirs offer different experiences. Go around them all or pick one and watch the wildlife. May be muddy so boots are recommended and for a break don't miss bluebells for a lovely bacon roll and a cup of tea.

I went fishing here today and will not be going back. Firstly the rules on the website were not displayed at the site and after asking around we were told additional rules which seem to be made up by the full members and are unfair to day ticket holders, like number of rods allowed and areas that can be fished were unclear then later being fished by full members. We were made to feel very unwelcome.

We parked at the small car park at Wilstone Reservoir and walked the footpath around the reservoir, through the fields to the dry canal before returning to the reservoir and back to the car. The paths are a bit muddy so appropriate footwear is essential. The views are lovely though, and the history behind the dry canal fascinating. A very pleasant afternoon.

Whether you are on your own, with family or with your dog, this is a perfect way of taking a leisurely stroll. You can cycle along the canal for miles from this point too, and have a tea/coffee and a bite to eat in the local tea rooms. The bird life will interest your children and grandchildren and watching the narrow boats negotiate the locks will fascinate them. A splendid place to visit.

Weston Turville Reservoir, just North of Wendover, on the Aylesbury Road. Surrounded by the lovely Buckinghamshire countryside, Weston Turville Reservoir is a wonderful oasis of water, woods and wildlife. During my visit with my grand/daughter we walked around the reservoir (some 2 kms) and we not only met many anglers but we also observed water fowl including some swans and signets from a bird hide. It's a photographer's paradise from a nature point of view with wonderful flora and fauna. We returned en masse 3/7 to watch my daughter and her partner take part in a free Stand Up Paddle Boarding excercise, organised in partnership with Sport England, the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and Chiltern Canoe Club who put on this event.
Joe Sammon, from the Canal & River Trust, said: “Paddle boarding is really easy to get into and is a great sport for beginners wanting to explore the waterways. As well as being easy to pick up. The relative calm waters of a local canal or reservoir are perfect to give paddle boarding a go"

This is a marvellous place for a gentle country walk. There are 3 trails you can take, ranging from two and a half to five and three quarter miles. The longer trail takes you around all 4 reservoirs and the canals. The trails are well sign posted, but I would take a map with you, just in case. The scenery is beautiful, including overlooking the reservoirs, the canal, (including the unrestored part) and through woods and fields. If you need a break, there are benches along the way and if you take the long trail, you can divert to a couple of pubs and cafes. Parts of the trails are wheelchair friendly. There are information signs which tells you what you can spot in the area.
