This short walk around Swinsty Reservoir was the first time I'd taken my daughter out for a walk outside of town.

3. Fewston Reservoir
4. Swinsty Reservoir
Walk Detail: This was the first time we'd taken Rhiannon, who was just over 5 months old, out for anything more than a short walk into town.
She seemed to quite enjoy herself, or at least she enjoyed the section she was awake for as she passed out not long after crossing Fewston dam.
I always seem to come to Swinsty in the winter, the circuit makes for a nice shortish stroll and I should really make the effort to go back for a walk at a different time of year.
