Notes*1 - Government has now permitted two persons (living separately) to exercise (walk) together in England so long as social distancing is observed (but some local areas may not welcome visitors from other areas) . Different rules apply in Scotland / Wales / Northern Island

Notes*2 - normally we would take the Permissive FP on the South side of the More Hall Reservoir, but Yorkshire Water had closed it during this virus period, so we followed road until we could join the open Public Footpath further to the East.
