Reviewed 6 October 2017 via mobile

Myself, 2 adult daughters, 11 yr old asd son and a 2 yr old toddler on a 1st time visit.
We found parking on the main road with no problem and as soon as the kids noticed the cafe we had to go there 1st.
We sat outside as we had our dog with us.
We ordered burger and chips with a soft drink each and it came to £33.
The food is nice and the staff are friendly.
There are toilets nearby that are clean and stocked.
There is a map next to the cafe and I suggest you take a photo of this on your mobile :)
We decided on the shorter walk and wow we were impressed.
Yes there does seem to be a slight problem with dog dirt but the scenery really outweighs this irritation.
Everyone we met was friendly and chatty.
We can't wait to go back and do the longer trail

This is a great place for a country walk for all the family, you have the river,trees and nature all around you.
If you fancy a cuppa you can calll in at the Pudding Ladies where toilets are provided both inside the cafe and the park itself.
You have the childrens play area and what was the old paddling pools but are now a water play area with water shoots.
Love this place.

Very interesting and reasonably level. About 6 miles there and back. Osts along the way explain what's been there. A working mill is also open.

Really easy walk. Using the TripAdvisor website we found most of the scenes from other people's photos, thank you. Google maps took us to a random street where we couldn't find the start of the trail.
Once we did find a car park we set off on the trail, there is a cafe, children's play area and important a public loo!
Great walk. Lots of birds including king fisher, dipper, tree creeper, grey wagtail.

We visited here this morning and did a circular walk parking in the car park off Rails Road. The outward leg took higher ground with good views over to Sheffield and also back towards the Peak District. The route back followed the River Rivelin and was very pleasant featuring man made weirs and falls along with old mill pounds. There are loads of signs explaining the industrial history of the route. All in all a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday morning.
