Lovely Walk at Lodge Moor & Wyming Brook

We love a good walk! This one is one of my favourites, it’s just absolutely beautiful and it’s easy to find, too. Within Sheffield means you can easily catch the bus to start this walk, the 51 to Lodge Moor will take you up the Terminus there where you depart, cross the road and off you go! Lovely Walk at Lodge Moor & Wyming Brook

There’s 2 ways you can start this walk, either from the Public Bridleway path across the road from the bus terminus; it’s a well defined path and will take you along the cliffs all the way down to Wyming Brook, or head to Three Merry Lads pub and their extremely large beer garden. At the very back on the beer garden you’ll find a path way leading to the left; follow this and eventually you will get to Wyming Brook. We usually start the walk from behind Three Merry Lads pub, but either way end up at the same place.

I couldn’t actually find a map or a walking route for this walk. I found this booklet which isn’t in print and has a variety of walks at Lodge Moor and Wyming Brook to choose from, but I wouldn’t say a clear route is particularly important as it’s quite easy to make your own route and choose where you go… the walk is quite self explanatory with some good little choose your own adventure parts. Fun, fun, fun!

We’ve always done the same, though, just head down from Three Merry Lads pub (or the public bridleway path opposite the bus terminus), along the cliffs and keep going left, down to Wyming Brook then turn right and scramble across the water, then climb back up to Lodge Moor again. 🙂

The first time we explored with this walk, I just followed the paths and from the Three Merry Lads beer garden followed left along the cliff tops, eventually heading into woodlands, and then this led us down to the water. Down by the water is a lovely spot for a picnic and even a paddle.

This is the spot we head back so instead of going straight ahead across the stepping stones, head right and walk along the water. The walk changes from countryside hills and scenic woodlands to the most magical waterfalls, big boulders and crashing water against the paths. Beautiful trees and truly amazing for photographs.

It can be tricky to scramble over the boulders here down at Wyming brook but it’s very fun and very worth it! I’d definitely recommend you wear proper walking shoes as it can be tricky at times and best not to get your feet hurt 🙂

Following the water down at Wyming Brook will take you out of where the water is, through a gate and a “Wyming brook nature reserve” sign. This is where we head back to the pub which means climbing uphill; so this took us (I was carrying Eric!) about another hour… phew! Lovely Walk at Lodge Moor & Wyming Brook

This walk is not flat path and does include scrambling, stopping for breaks and even some climbing. Eric had lots of fun bug hunting, running around and playing on rocks, and even a bit of paddling. I would most definitely recommend a sling for children as even good walkers may find it tricky and it’d be quite difficult to carry them as you need to be aware of where your feet are going at all times.

Big slide at Three Merry Lads pub!

The walk is a favourite of hours and I really recommend you go and see for yourself. Three Merry Lads pub is definitely the spot to be after this walk, haha. Dog friendly, playground for kids, food and drinks… you can’t beat it. Nothing better than a good pub after a good walk.  Amazing for clearing the cob webs away. 🙂 Do read this good information article about the walk on Outdoor City, too.
