Enjoy a waterside walk through the pretty Wyming Brook Nature Reserve on this route near Sheffield. The footpath takes you through peaceful woodland with a babbling brook, mossy crags, stone steps and wooden bridges. You can start your walk from the car park off Redmires Road just north of the lower reservoir and the Redmires woodland plantation. You then head north through the reserve to Rivelin Dams. The area is also a designated nature reserve with lots of interesting flora and fauna. Look out for birds including crossbills, redstarts, wood warblers and pied flycatchers as you make your way along the popular trail.
If you prefer the walk could also be started from the Rivelin Lower Reservoir car park and completed from north to south. You could also turn it into a circular walk by heading east along Wyming Brook Drive to Reddicar Clough and then
The brook links Redmires Reservoir and the Rivelin Dams so it's easy to extend your walk. Wyming Brook Drive runs just south of Rivelin Dams and is a good track for walking with more attractive woodland.
You're also not far from the Rivelin Valley Nature Trail. It's a similar walk taking you through a wooded gorge with a rushing river.
