Bradfield to Damflask: a run around the reservoirs

Photo by Gemma Thorpe.

Starting at the car park on The Sands in Low Bradfield, this picturesque route circles two of the area’s four reservoirs.

Watch out for slippery stone slabs and traffic before turning onto the path alongside Agden reservoir. Follow the path through the trees, taking care in muddy and narrow places, and enjoy the view across the reservoir and out into the valley.

Cross back through the village of Low Bradfield and join the track that borders Damflask reservoir, which takes its name from a village that stood here until it was washed away by the Great Sheffield Flood of 1864. Cross the dam wall, before turning left to return into Low Bradfield.
