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
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.
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.
