Redmires Reservoir

Covid-19 update

In accordance with government guidance, our recreational sites and car parks remain open during the national lockdown for people to exercise locally. We ask that you follow the latest guidance to help keep yourself, our key workers and others safe. In the current lockdown this includes:

  • Please do not travel to one of our sites if it isn’t local (which the government has defined as the village, town, or part of a city where you live).
  • Please only visit to exercise with your household, your support bubble, or to meet one other person.

If you do plan to visit, we continue to request that you are respectful of our sites, staff members, other visitors and local communities:

  • Please maintain social distancing throughout your visit.
  • Please follow any instructions on signage around the site.
  • Please follow designated paths. The paths are there to keep you and our key workers safe.
  • Make sure you take any litter home with you and do not light any BBQs or fires.
  • If the car park is full, please do not park on verges or on the road as this causes traffic issues and can block important access for operational vehicles or the emergency services.

All of our toilet facilities are currently closed so please be mindful of this when visiting.

Redmires Reservoirs are a series of three reservoirs less than 10 miles away from the centre of Sheffield. Despite their proximity to a large city, the reservoirs are situated in stunning open moorland. The surrounding landscape to the south is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, designated for the variety of birds, reptiles and mammals which the landscape supports. The path around the south of the reservoir can be muddy in places but there are various benches along the roadside for you to sit and marvel at the landscape.

To the North of the reservoir sits Wyming Brook, a Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust reserve offering an array of wildlife including dippers and crossbills. A wide surfaced bridleway runs through the reserve with numerous unsurfaced paths as well.

We ask you to keep your dogs under close control on all our sites with Redmires being an especially important area due to the Water Vole population on site.
