Severn Trent invites local community to Tittesworth unveiling

29 February 2016

Severn Trent is inviting the local community to celebrate the unveiling of the new pathway, at Tittesworth Reservoir, near Leek, on Sunday 13 March. 

Sarah Gould, visitor sites supervisor for Tittesworth Reservoir, explains: “We’re really pleased with the brand new pathway, which will create a safer, more picturesque experience for our visitors, and to celebrate this we’d like to invite local people to a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Water Sports Centre, Tittesworth Reservoir.”

Tittesworth Reservoir long trail, which is situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, is just under five miles long and used to take visitors through a farmyard, along a farm track and onto a stretch of country lane, which was not ideal as there is no pavement. The new section of path means that visitors can ramble through woodland and are much closer to the reservoir, giving beautiful views of the surrounding landscape.

Sarah adds: “They’ll also have the opportunity to take part in a number of exciting activities that we’ll be hosting for all the family. Local residents can come down on Sunday 13 March, between 11am and 3pm and enjoy a range of trails and activities, such as canoeing and kayaking on the reservoir, raft building, orienteering and archery, to name a few. Refreshments will also be provided throughout the day, as many of these activities can be thirsty work.

“A number of teams from the company will be here on the day as well, to talk to families about the importance of being water efficient and also giving people the opportunity to climb aboard Dolly, our educational vehicle, and learn more about our water works. We’re really looking forward to the event, and hope that the local community can come and celebrate, and have some fun with us.”
