Agden reservoir, completed in 1869, sits above Damflask Reservoir with Dale Dike and Strines Reservoirs to the south-west. The public footpath leading from Windy Bank and around the north of the reservoir, is mostly flat and well surfaced but can be muddy. Walking boots are recommended. The villages of Low Bradfield and High Bradfield sit to the south and southeast of the reservoir, offering pubs, cafes and public toilets.
Agden Bog, a Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust Reserve, sits just to the north of the reservoir. Bogs were lost from our landscape as land was drained for agriculture. This site is a classic example of an ancient landscape, featuring birds like nightjar, spotted flycatcher, willow warbler, bullfinch, siskin, lesser redpoll and common sandpiper.
