    Dave yes it can get pretty muddy in there been in there many a time. I did think about walking up throu Lineover woods which you get to by going up the path/road right on the bend by the what was the pub on opposite side of the road. You get a good view looking down on to the reservoir. Dont know if youve been up throu there you can also access it from the top off the road by Peggelsworth. which is the road that runs up from The Kilkenny to Seven springs. Some of the trees in the woods are 600 plus years old.  From the A40 entry there is a small car park as well. Ive never worked out why they havent put a crash barrier on that bend many have gone off and ended up in the field next to the pub over the years a lad i knew in my 20s sadly was killed there .
