Fewston Reservoir
Winter scene at Fewston Reservoir

Fewston is the second in a chain of reservoirs in Washburndale providing water to the people of Leeds. When the reservoirs were run by public bodies, they were out of bounds to the public. Since privatisation, Yorkshire Water has provided footpaths around the reservoirs, car parks, and other facilities, making them popular places for country walks.
