Take a peaceful walk around Broomhead Reservoir
Broomhead circular is a peaceful walk in the Peak District National Park, taking in woodlands and glimpses across the reservoir. Although located on the doorstep of Sheffield, it is far enough off the beaten track to offer quiet solitude and immersion in nature. The route takes you around the reservoir on unsurfaced paths.

There is no car park at Broomhead, however roadside parking is available at the entrance to the footpath (S36 4ZD). Please be mindful of “no parking” areas nearby. Alternative parking is available alongside the private road which runs along the neighbouring More Hall Reservoir.
