Pleasant walk, the mud on the fields was just okay for walking shoes as opposed to boots. A good place to see and listen to bird life. The Pump House cafe near the reservoir is well worth a visit. The route from point 5 on the map to the Sywell Road has a sign on it saying that to protect the environment there is no through access by foot. At the northern end there is no stile and the gate is locked. An alternative to avoid this section would be to return to the dam and back to Mears Ash.
