At the moment here in England COVID-19 lockdown restrictions have been eased slightly. Allowing us to travel a little further to exercise, as long as we all continue to social distance. So yesterday was the first time since lockdown began in the UK (23rd March 2020) that we have ventured further than our local parks for a walk and take in some fresh air.
As I had already booked the Bank-Holiday Monday as annual leave we decided to visit Damflask Reservoir, which is situated in the Loxely valley of Sheffield. Unlike most bank holidays we were treated to great weather (the world clearly has gone mad lol). We definitely managed to get some exercise. I think was the furthest that we have walked in one outing during lockdown so far.
Damflask is another one of these places that is practically on our doorstep that neither my wife or I have visited before. Definitely worth a return visit at some time in the future.
Considering the current social distancing and the hot weather that we had yesterday the reservoir and surrounding woods wasn’t overly busy. People were definitely doing their best to social distance unlike further down south if we are to believe the stories reported in the news.
