Around Wyming Brook Farm there are some of the most breathtaking views and scenic routes for rmiles around.
There are many local cycle routes and walking paths.
Right on our doorstep you will find Wyming Brook Nature Reserve. This nature reserve is a little wilderness and a favourite of local bird watchers, supporting a diverse population of bird life. There are easy strolls by the streams or higher, rockier routes with dramatic views of the Rivelin Reservoirs and the City beyond. Part of the Eastern Moors site of Special Scientific Interest, there is an abundance of wildlife at the reserve, including bizarrely named moths. Wyming Brook flows from Lower Redmires Reservoir to Rivelin Dams.
Up the hill from Wyming Brook are the three Redmires Dams, where all ages can enjoy a breezy stroll.
Stanage Pole, Stanage Edge and Hathersage
Stanage Pole is a tall mast which marks the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and can be seen for several miles around, on a clear day. The pole is a way marker on a medieval packhorse road known as the Long Causey or Long Causeway, which runs west from Sheffield. It was also used for centuries as a boundary marker between the parishes of Sheffield, Hathersage and Ecclesfield.
Carrying on past the Pole, you will find yourself at the top of a cliff face known as Stanage Edge.
Stanage Edge is approximately 4 miles in length and 458m at its highest point is the largest of the gritstone cliffs that overlook Hathersage, Derbyshire. The area is one of the most popular locations in the Peak District National Park for climbing and walking with hundreds of rock climbing routes to challenge all range of ability.
Walkers are drawn to the area to enjoy the varied moorland scenery with stunning views across the surrounding countryside including Hathersage, Castleton and the ‘Shivering Mountain,’ Mam Tor in the west. A walk along the edge is an easy route but the exposed cliff can make conditions difficult throughout the year as it is often battered by wind, rain and regular snowfall in the winter months. There are a number of popular walks including routes along the remains of a Roman Road and towards Redmires Reservoir to the east as well as longer walker such as those including the nearby Longshaw Estate
Hathersage is a popular centre for walkers and rock-climbers, for on its east side the village is overlooked by moorland and a line of gritstone edges, of which Stanage Edge is the largest. There are also spectacular tors such as Higgar Tor, and the enigmatic hillfort at Carl Wark, which has so far defied archaeologists’ attempts to date it. Several of the edges were quarried and the area was a major source of millstones for grinding corn and metals.
