Description of Habitat & Facilities

Ogden Water is owned by Yorkshire Water and managed on their behalf by Calderdale Countryside Services and was designated a Local Nature Reserve in 2003. The Estate comprises a 34 acre reservoir enclosed by woodland with open moor beyond. The heather uplands and peat moors form part of a Special Protection Area, that is of international importance for breeding birds.

There are numerous woodland trails and waterside paths to explore, with stunning views extending across Calderdale. Ogden is also an excellent base to explore the wider South Pennines by foot or bike.

There are over 2 km of wheelchair accessible paths around the reservoir. There are a number of designated car park spaces. A wheelchair and electric scooter are available to loan from the visitor centre. The visitor centre is open most days, 10am to 4pm.
