Country Park

Worsbrough Mill Country Park covers over 240 acres and holds Local Nature Reserve status.

The Parks 60 acre reservoir is a haven for wildlife and is open to anglers and bird watchers. The Park has well maintained footpaths and cyclepaths that meander through Willow Carr and around the circumference of the reservoir passing meadowlands that are rich in wild flowers.


There are three walks within the boundaries of the Park:

  • The Owl Walk: A walk incorporating many past industries but can be muddy in wet weather. Approximately 5km.
  • The Badger Walk: A fairly level walk following Worsbrough Reservoir with only very slight inclines in places. Suitable for wheelchair access. Approximately 3.5km.
  • The Fox Walk: A reasonably level walk with a few inclines. Suitable for wheelchair access. Approximately 2km.

Leaflets about the walks are available free of charge from the Mill shop and Millers Tea Room.

The Park is also a good base for the Trans Pennine Trail or other longer walks.


Fishing is available in the upper pond and canal basin. Fishing day tickets are issued on the day by the bank walker. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Season tickets cover fishing at Brampton Canal, Fiskerton section of the River Trent, Smithes Pond, Tinkers Pond and Worsbrough Reservoir. For further information please contact the Barnsley Amalgamated Angling Association on 01226 203090.
