In accordance with government guidance, our recreational sites and car parks remain open for people to exercise outdoors. We ask that you follow the latest guidance on group sizes and social distancing to help keep yourself, our key workers and others safe.
If you do plan to visit, we continue to request that you are respectful of our sites, staff members, other visitors and local communities:
- Do not light any BBQs or fires and call 999 to report any uncontrolled fires that may be at risk of spreading.
- Make sure you take any litter home with you.
- 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.
- 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.
Damflask is one of Yorkshire's largest premier fisheries and situated within the stunning Peak District National Park.
The reservoir can be fished for bream, chub, dace, perch, pike and roach and is open all year round. In recent years we have restocked the reservoir with over 100 bream, some weighing more than 4lbs each. At a match held at the reservoir in 2005, an individual record of 70lbs was set by one angler!
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.
Dale Dike Reservoir
Dale Dike Reservoir is much loved by walkers offering a peaceful and tranquil 2-mile circular walk. This route is quite muddy and uneven so walking boots are recommended.
The reservoir can be found at S6 6SQ. There is no car park at the reservoir, however, roadside parking is possible.
By public transport
There is a bus stop where Oaks Lane meets New Road, which is where the walking route starts.
