Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

This visitor site is open for local visitors to exercise

As England has now entered a national lockdown, we are following the Government guidelines to help keep everyone safe.

This site will remain open for local people to exercise. The Government has defined local as the village, town, or part of a city where you live. Please do not travel to a site if it's not local to where you live.

It’s really important to protect the safety and wellbeing of all our visitors, local communities and our teams, so we urge everyone to stay local, observe social distancing and follow any measures we have put in place if you visit a reopened site.

A little about Linacre Reservoirs

Some history and the site today

  • Historically the three reservoirs supplied water to the nearby town of Chesterfield.
  • However, they became non-operational in 1995 and today they’re managed for visitors and wildlife and provide a popular local amenity.
  • The natural beauty of the sites is preserved by maintaining the habitats that can be found here and enhancing the facilities to ensure the Linacre Reservoirs remain a beautiful, wild and accessible site.
  • Nuthatches, flycatchers and woodpeckers can be seen and heard as they flit among the canopy. Kingfishers and mandarin ducks can be spotted around the water's edge.
