Walk Route Description

Dale Dike Reservoir is located amidst woodland and open pasture. The start is located west of Low Bradfield, which is a quaint village near Sheffield. The diverse natural environment encourages wildlife so you should keep a look out as you walk. Like many paths, the waterside section of the route can be quite muddy after rain.
This is one of the free reservoir walks produced by Yorkshire Water who are one of the county's largest landowners, with around 72,000 acres of land spanning National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds. There is a wide range of walks on offer from gentle strolls around one of their picturesque reservoirs to more adventurous routes. Yorkshire Water have selected some of their top walks for you and split them into three regional packs. Just print them out and off you go.
Each site has its own walk pack that you can easily print out and take along with you. Each pack includes directions to the site, a summary of the walk, a list of facilities available, a detailed route map and route instructions. To download walk descriptions go to Yorkshire Water Walks.
