“Beautiful”
Review of Dovestone Resevoir

Dovestone Resevoir
Ranked #2 of 24 things to do in Oldham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Dovestones has amazing views of the hillsides and beyond if you can manage a hill.

Grate place to walk round, has many different paths depending what you want to see & how long you want to be out for.

Dog friendly, though in one section of the main path dogs must be on lead, due to sheep wandering about.

There's often an ice-cream van & food stall in the bottom car park. And it's a 60p charge for parking....but it's worth it.
