    Great for dog walkers. Wheelchair accessible, however there are longer walking routes you can take if you wish that might not be appropriate for a wheelchair. "Dog pool" at the top end which is ideal on a sunny day, where your dogs to cool off.

    This is a great area to walk, with Dave areas for dogs to swim & cool off in. The route around the lake can get busy during the summer months. There are plenty of route to walk through the woods & it is much quieter, there is also free parking at the entrance for the woods (top of Barnsley road).

    I grew up playing in these woods! Much change has taken place since then with lots of sculpting of paths through the woods. This means you can choose the level wheelchair/pushchair friendly path round the dam or go off piste into the woods with many choices of direction. There's a "gnome roam" to keep the children occupied as they look for the carved figures and try and find the legendary dancing bear in the woods. Car park is pay and display. There's usually an ice cream van at both ends of the walk and the Dam Inn serves a mean pint and food! Alternatively there's the Bueley café. I love it here as I can walk past the house I grew up in so I'm biased!
