On Sunday February 2nd with good weather forecast a large group of 47 Crewe & Nantwich Ramblers set off to the Angelzarke Reservoir which is the largest reservoir in the Rivington chain to the west of Anglezarke in Lancashire, for their usual fortnightly walk.
All the walkers left their comfortable Burland bus at Rivington Hall Barn and then split up into groups with the A Team heading for Winter Hill and with the other walkers set for a more leisurely walk around the local reservoirs.
After passing through Rivington Village the first reservoir to be seen was Yarrow Reservoir where a few of the walkers were lucky to see a wild deer heading over the hills. The route then headed on to Angelzarke Reservoir which was rounded in a long anti clockwise loop.
Heading south the Upper Rivington Reservoir was passed and then the route followed Horrobin Lane that divides the Upper and Lower Rivington Reservoirs.
Now walking back along the banks of the Lower Rivington Reservoir the walkers were happy to return to the Rivington Hall Barn Tea Rooms which were packed out with many other groups of walkers and cyclists etc. who were all out to enjoy the good weather.
