a wonderful valley reclaimed by nature with loads of history in between the trees, trickling water, mini water falls and old buildings

I have visited this area many times, and each is a pleasure. Gentle streams, the remains of an industrial past, and good walks. Plenty of parking, with car parks reasonably priced and interspersed through the area, it's definitely worth a visit.

Nice rural walk, close to the city, dog friendly, very clean and steeped in history (until Sheffield Council build a dam there)

Beautiful place lots of dog walkers around and nice cafe and toilets available but swings are a bit dated and not many benches around but overall well worth a visit :)

Great walking area just for a gentle stroll. No major uphills. Limited free parking is available at the dam.

This is a walk with river side attractions you pass the fishing lake with ducks, the park and the allotments - you can grab a coffee and cake at the little café in the park.

Great place to visit and plenty to explore! On some occasions we found ourselves walking the wrong way so some signposting would be good. Apart from that, great day out for all including the dog.
