Geocache Description:


This is a circular walk around Tittesworth Water of about 5 miles which should take about 2 and 1/2 hours. The path to the dam along one side has been made wheelchair accessible.
The dam at Tittesworth was constructed across the River Churnet between 1959 and 1963, to provide for increasing water demand in Leek, Stoke on Trent and the surrounding area. It replaced a much smaller (about a third of the size) Victorian dam which had been built to supply the local dyeing industry in Leek. A new treatment plant was commissioned in the mid 1990s, to supply up to 45 million litres (10 million gallons) of water a day.

A new visitor centre, interactive exhibition, shops and enlarged restaurant were opened in 1998. The river Churnet enters the reservoir just by the visitor centre and there is a picnic area here. The reservoir lies just below The Roaches, which form a spectacular backdrop.

The reservoir has a wide range of wildlife. There is an information area, exhibition, restaurant, shop, play area, water-saving garden, bird-watching hides and trails. Please note that fishing and cycling are NOT allowed. Parking and limited wheelchair access - parking costs £2.50 for 2 hours and £4 for all day.
This is a very popular walking route so please re-hide the cache well.

The cache is a small plastic box with logbook, pen and a few goodies.
