Circular walk from Swinton Bivouac near Masham to Leighton and Roundhill Reservoirs and back via Ilton in the Nidderdale AONB
Nidderdale AONB was our destination and our route began just over four miles from Masham. On a good autumn morning we parked and set off on our walk from Swinton Bivouac, along to Leighton and Roundhill Reservoirs, up on to the moor and back down to Ilton and returning to the bivouac for lunch.
