Discover delightful views on our Redmires walk

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.
