Explore Fernilee reservoir, just passed Fernilee Village and as you enter the peak district national park there is a right turning its not sign posted, you drop down a road with speed bumps and eventually you come to Fernilee Reservoir and you can park for free.

Alternatively you can park before Fernilee Village just after Whaley Bridge on the A5004 Buxton Road is Taxal Lay-bye on your right, if you park here there are some splendid routs to Fernilee if you bare left you can not really go wrong, a must see is the village of Taxal and Taxal Edge.

Depending on were you go dogs are fine off the leads, one side of reservoir is wooded with selection of spruces, pines and more native trees like silver birch and oak very pretty when you see it from the other side of the water.

Walking for all fitness levels, easy going water rout or you can climb higher on the woodland walks and if you wish to explore more of the Goyt Valley you can walk up to the higher Errwood Reservoir and explore the Errwood Hall Ruins.

Very dog friendly, be sensible should you pass through the few farm yards dotted around, dogs on leads when you pass threw farms. No bins so please do not clog up the countryside with plastic bags of poop, cover the poop up with a rock or flick into the woods with a stick and let nature deal with it. Keep Fernilee clean and litter free, its such a beautiful place my dogs love it!
