Baitings and Ryburn Reservoirs

Baitings and Ryburn Reservoir is a set of pictures taken around the 2 dams in July 2018 that are featured in 2 albums. Album 1 can be seen here and on Flickr, it features 93 pictures, with album 2 exclusive only to Clickasnap which features 28 pictures taken around the dams. They were taken using a Nikon d3300SLR camera.

Ryburn Reservoir

Built in 1933 and surrounded by ancient woodland and rural fields, Ryburn Reservoir was built to supply the people of Wakefield with fresh water. Found to the south of the A58 on the outskirts of the village of Ripponden there are many walks around the dam and you can climb up the valley to the higher Baitings Reservoir.

Baitings Reservoir

Built to supply Wakefield, Baitings Reservoir opened in 1956 and is further up the valley from Ryburn. Fed by a number of small streams it's main supply is the River Ryburn with the dam sitting at the head of the Ryburn Valley. During times of low water levels the original bridge crossing can be seen, and although it was covered on this visit I managed to picture it on a later visit which I will upload another day.
