Being such a beautiful day today we decided to explore Agden Reservoir near Low Bradfield. We have never been before and were pleasantly surprised.
Agden Reservoir is a water storage reservoir, situated 6.5 miles (10 km) west of the centre of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England and it’s owned by Yorkshire Water. The reservoir covers an area of 25 hectares and has a capacity of 559 million gallons of water, the dam wall has a width of approximately 350 metres with a height of 30 metres.
The reservoir is one of four which were built in the second half of the 19th century to collect water from the moorlands around the village of Low Bradfield, west of Sheffield. The other three being Damflask, Dale Dike and Strines reservoirs.
Agden was completed in 1869 and is fed by Hobson Moss Dike and Emlin Dike which flow off the Broomhead and Bradfield moors respectively. Coniferous woodland owned by Sheffield City Council surrounds the reservoir.
