Only discovered this recently when looking for somewhere that has snowdrops. It's a short walk down from the car park to the entrance of the reserve. or you can walk from nearby Calke Abbey which would be a longer walk. It's not a large reserve and there's a circular walk around a couple of ponds up to the high point where the snowdrops are in season, then back round to the start. Some boardwalk and lots of steps - mainly without rails, so not suitable for buggies or anyone who needs support when going up/down steps. When there's been rain it will also be very muddy as it was still muddy even after many dry days. It's not large, so doesn't take long to walk but there are few places to sit.

For anyone interested in industrial history then it's the site of former mining and there are the remains of 5 furnaces and Ticknall tramway ran through part of it - all documented on an information board.

As the snowdrops were out, even though it was mid week, it was not quiet and the car park was overflowing by lunch time when we left, but it could be a peaceful place and good for birdwatching. Just a lovely place to walk.

Myself, daughter and Alfie the dog went for an autumnal walk through Dimmingsdale Nature Reserve recently and enjoyed the woodland walk. The pond was clean but had no wildlife around. The walk took us around to the Ferrers centre and the church at Staunton Harold. Lovely walk for a couple of hours

A wonderful place to have gentle stroll and enjoy fascinating history and nature in a very tranquil setting. An easy ( although some inclines in places) circular route clearly marked and well maintained.

Have driven past this place many times on the way home from visiting Calke Abbey and Staunton Harrold. This is a self contained wooded area with a number of lakes. The paths are well maintained and the route easy to follow. A good place to spend an hour.
The snowdrops were spectacular and abundant.

Now a nature reserve located at the southern end of Staunton Harold reservoir, Dimminsdale was a centre of limestone quarrying from the late 18th through to the mid 19th centuries. The limestone which was mined at the site was burned in kilns to produce a valuable fertilizer - calcium carbonate.

The site was abandoned and allowed to become overgrown until the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust made an easier access to the site.

Limestone was mined here, which was then burned in kilns on the site to produce a valuable fertilizer calcium carbonate. The former quarry has long since been flooded but some of the former quarry faces are still exposed and you can find small veins of galena (lead sulphide).

There is a clear circular path through the reserve and a circuit takes 20-30 mins, depending what interests you.

Parking is found in the free car park at the southern end of Staunton Harold reservoir and walk down the road for a few minutes and you'll find the reserve on the left side of the road. You can also take in the reserve as part of a walk around Staunton Harold and the nearby Calke estate.

We love Dimmingsdale most people would not have had heard of this place.
It is beautiful some times quite muddy.
But when the snowdrops are out and you can see the kingfisher darting across the pool.
There is no other place you would rather be.
Stunning

Really enjoy visiting Dimminsdale, park in the lay-by down the road and look over bridge before heading up to the reserve.

Nice mix of habitats, some beautiful views. If you follow the track around it is very up and down, which gets the circulation going, but wouldn't suit everyone.

Very relaxing place to go for a walk.

A lovely place to visit any time of the year but especially when the snowdrops are out. If you are lucky you might see kingfishers in the summer. Parts do tend to be wet.

Not only the visit is worth viewing the local Great Crested Grebe ducks, but the walk around the Laundry pool will take you to a large and beautiful snowdrop garden.
So visits are most recommended during February !
