    Route Description for Agden Reservoir Walk

    The charming villages of High Bradfield and Low Bradfield have always served as an escape from the city for people living in nearby Sheffield, so it should come as no surprise that the Agden Reservoir Walk is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a leisurely stroll along the water’s edge. Setting out from the trailhead, make your way north along Windy Bank and take in the beautiful views across the calm water of the reservoir, before leaving the road behind on the approach to the Agden Bog Nature Reserve. After crossing over Hobson Moss Dike, continue northeast through the boggy terrain before climbing up the hillside. From here, you will turn to the southeast and enjoy some scenic views overlooking the reservoir from an elevated position along the hillside, before making your way into the village of High Bradfield. After passing through the village, follow the trail to the west in order to cut across the picturesque countryside and arrive back in Low Bradfield where you began the walk.
