Fewston Reservoir

Fewston Reservoir, one of three built in the 1870s in the Washburn Valley near Harrogate with a fourth, Thruscross, added in 1966, to supply Leeds with water. The start of a circular crossing Blubberhouses Moor which is crossed by the Roman Road, Watling Street. I found no trace of the road, being obliterated by a modern access track. A pair of Red Kites circled above me but keep far enough away to avoid my lens. I discovered when I got home that very close to where I had passed a Red Kite was found shot in June. This was the second one found shot in the vicinity in as many months. Quite depressing after a glorious day on the hills.
