Mary Towneley Loop diversion (Widdop)


Puzzle game procrastinator!
I was out on my MTB last week and noticed signs up announcing a forthcoming bridleway closure at Widdop reservoir, confirmed today in a letter from Yorkshire Water. The closure officially begins on 19th July and may last 3 to 4 months while drainage and erosion protection is improved at the embankment. A diversion of the footpath and bridleway is in place round the side of Gorple Lower reservoir.

The car park at Widdop reservoir will be closed and put to use as a site compound. Construction traffic will be using Widdop Road during this time but the drivers have been instructed to "drive carefully and courteously" - presumably they might not have done if they hadn't been given those instructions? ;)
