Redmires Reservoirs are nestled within a beautiful yet accessible location, at the eastern edge of the Peak District National Park. This pleasant and peaceful circular walk begins by crossing Hallam Moors to the south of the three tiered reservoirs. As you descend down the path you’ll have delightful views of these intriguingly-shaped water bodies, which are visited by thousands of wildfowl and waders each year.

Terrain & Gradient
A mixture of roads, surfaced tracks and unsurfaced paths. The route is mainly fairly level, but the terrain can be uneven and wet underfoot. Good sturdy footwear is recommended.
How To Get There
This route begins at the southern end of Redmires Road, where the road ends at the south-western corner of the upper Redmires Reservoir; the furthest west of the series of reservoirs.
By car: There is a public car park (this is not owned or managed by Yorkshire Water), where the road bends at the north-western edge of the upper reservoir (S10 4QZ). There is also some roadside parking – please park carefully and with consideration for other road users.
From Sheffield: Head west out of Sheffield City Centre on the A57 and keep right after 1 mile where the A57 leaves Fulwood Road. Continue on the A57 (Manchester Road) for ¾ of a mile, then turn left onto Sandygate Road. After about a mile, Sandygate Road becomes Redmires Road; continue for just over 3 miles to your destination.
By public transport: There is a bus stop at Lodge Moor Terminus, which is just over 2 miles from the start of this walk.
