Yarrow Reservoir is the smallest of the main reservoirs at Rivington and is often overlooked by casual visitors, situated as it is, away from the Three Lakes and without well-known features or nearby amenities. However, it does have good footpaths all around, interesting historic features, and is actually situated central to a hub of routes leading to great walking areas.
The water itself is not very accessible on most sides as there is a wall and in some places very steep embankments.
