Tittesworth Reservoir lies in the Peak District National Park, near Leek in Staffordshire. The reservoir is overshadowed by The Roaches, a prominent rocky ridge which rises up dramatically from its shores to a height of 505 m (1,657 ft). The Roaches is a very popular destination for rock climbers, hikers and freerunners, while those in favour of a gentler experience can opt for one of two marked trails around the perimeter of the reservoir. The shorter of the two is around 2.4 km (1.5 mi) and is wheelchair-accessible; the longer is 7 km (4.5 mi) and runs round the entire perimeter of the reservoir, offering spectacular views of The Roaches above. On the site, there are also bird-watching hides and a water-saving garden. Fishing is not permitted in the reservoir, but facilities include a picnicking area.
