North end of the dam at Underbank reservoir.

As part of Walk Sheffield 2014, Stocksbridge Walkers are Welcome are leading a walk from the North end of the dam wall at Underbank Reservoir. Meet at 10.30 by the reservoir house on the northern side of Underbank Reservoir embankment. (Grid Ref: SK253995).

The length of this circular walk is 8 miles (13 km). The walk is past three reservoirs, taking in farmland, woodland and a disused railway line. The walk starts by following the shore of Underbank reservoir before a climb up to Midhope reservoir. Excellent views across the valley are afforded before the route drops back down to the river Porter and then on up to Langsett. The route returns to Underbank along the line of the railway that was built to supply materials during the construction of Langsett Reservoir. http://www.stocksbridge-walkers.org.uk/Walks/ThreeReservoirs.html
