Newmillerdam Country Park
Enjoy cycling and walking paths in this country park in Wakefield. The park includes a central lake surrounded by a surfaced path and woodland with way-marked cycling trails.
If you would like to continue your outing you could follow the Chevet branch line old railway into the countryside and onto the nearby Barnsley Canal. Here you can join with the Trans Pennine Trail and head towards Wakefield or Barnsley. Just to the north of the park you'll find Pugneys Country Park where there's another nice lake and a nature reserve with interesting flora and fauna.
In Wakefield you can pick up the Wakefield Canal and follow it to Castleford.
