Why you should do this walk…

An 8-mile circular walk taking in some rarely-used spots west of Sheffield, accessible by good public transport. There is a small reservoir up on Hallam Moors, and that is the focal point of this walk. It begins with a walk through the woods above Fox Hagg, to descend to Wyming Brook, where it ascends immediately to walk along the edge of Ash Cabin Flat. Descending steeply to follow Wyming Brook Drive for a short while, it climbs west to take in the curious Head Stone before continuing across to ascend Oaking Clough and reach the small, isolated, innominate reservoir: an ideal place for lunch on a fine day. Return is via the well-defined path alongside the conduit, to reach the Redmires Reservoirs. A walk through the waterworks at Redmires Plantation brings us to another conduit which is followed back to Lodge Moor.

Dog friendly?…

The walk follows mainly clear paths, with a few sections across well-defined moorland paths. Some sections can get muddy. You will need to negotiate a few stiles and squeeze gaps. The walk crosses a set of stepping stones but these can be avoided if you prefer. You are unlikely to encounter any livestock, although you may come across the odd sheep on the moor so take care with dogs.
