GPS Cycle and Walking Routes

Langsett Reservoir

3 miles (5.5 km)

This circular walk takes you around the lovely Langsett Reservoir on the edge of thePeak District National Park.
The walk starts in the village of Langsett and follows footpaths through the woodland and open moorland around the reservoir. There is some climbing involved, though you are rewarded with splendid views across the Peak District. Most of the route is on well maintained, signed paths.
Other highlights on the route include the ruined farm buildings at North America, views of the Little Don River and some delightful woodland paths.
The Barnsley Boundary Walk runs past the reservoir so you could pick up this trail and head east to the nearby Midhope and Underbank Reservoir, or west towards Winscar Reservoir. You could also head south past Hingcliff Common, Mickleden Edge and the Midhope Moors to visit the Howden, Derwent and Ladybower Reservoirs in the High Peak. The Langsett to Ladybower Walk 10 mile route will take you across the heather clad Howden Moors to the reservoirs.
Langsett Reservoir is located close to both Stocksbridge and Sheffield.
