Damflask Reservoir is situated in the Loxley Valley, near the village of Low Bradfield. It sits just within the boundary of the Peak District National Park, giving it a beautiful countryside setting whilst still being easily accessible from the centre of Sheffield, just 5 miles to the east.
The 47 hectare area of open water is popular for angling and water sports, including three active rowing clubs and the Viking Sailing Club. The perimeter of the reservoir is also great for walking, especially since enhancements to the 31/4 mile circular route were completed in 2015 following a £60,000 Yorkshire Water investment. Improvements included the widening of access points to facilitate wheelchair entry, tactile paving and information boards, and an accessible ramp down to the waterside for fishing.
Low Bradfield is a charming village where a visit to the reservoir can be completed with a drink at a café or public house.
