Rivelin Valley-damflask reservoir-Loxley Valley

Since the weather was nice on Sunday my wife and I decided to go for a long walk around our neighborhood. We checked the map and found a water reservoar that was 10km away and we have never been that way so it suited us fine. First we went through a frosty and chilly Rivelin Valley, the sun did not quite get down here yet, but then we went up to the pastures where the sun was shining and it was warming up the body quickly. Once up on the highest point we could now see Damflask reservoir which was the goal for the day. Read on some signs along the water, it seems to be popular with fishermen and I understand why, they have caught really big pike there.  Pictures on the sign showed  pike's weighing up to 15 kg.
From here we continued walking down the Loxley Valley against Hillsborough, where we took the bus home. The whole walk was about 18km and took 4.5 hours.
