TWO popular reservoir sites near Huddersfield have been given an £80,000 makeover.
Landowners Yorkshire Water have carried out a major renovation campaign on footpaths around Ingbirchworth and Scout Dike.
They hope they will encourage more people to enjoy walks in the areas this summer.
The two reservoir sites now boast 2.5km of refurbished footpaths, including 1.5km with access for all.
It follows work by the company to open up previously hard-to-access areas and give nature lovers even more freedom to roam what are fast becoming two of West Yorkshire's most popular beauty spots.
Located next to each other, both Ingbirchworth and Scout Dike are known for their brown trout fisheries, as well as their burgeoning birdlife.
The next few weeks will see species such as chiffchaff and willow warbler take up residence at both sites for the start of the nesting season.
