Technically and legally the path is a cul de sac as it does not link to another public highway. Sheffield City Council have said that the reservoir is a “place of public resort”.

This is the fruit of Council’s policy of consulting Ramblers’ & ourselves when council-owned land comes up for sale or a new tenancy and asking both parties to suggest potentially new footpaths.

There is a new signpost on Trouble Wood Lane & ladder stiles in intermediate walls. The society queried the use of user unfriendly structures but apparently ground levels between fields meant no other structure was feasible.
