    A large reservoir with spectacular scenery, the Winscar Reservoir is popular with hikers and bikers as well as windsurfers and sailors. The Pennine Sailing Club has its base at the reservoir. Surrounded by hills, the calm waters of the reservoir are a great place to have a break. During the summer, you can stop off at the ice cream van for a treat!

    if like me you set your route to mtb and are coming from penistone on the 627, you cant access the resvoir from the housing estate. go up to the left follow around until you reach a sign for the sailing club on your right.
