Hva folk sier
beautiful, historic dam above Todmorden
jul. 2017
Jeg elsker denne dam, det er en tjue minutters gange hjemmefra, og det beste stedet å være i en stille sommer morgen. . . Dessverre, i den senere tid, vår skjulte skatten har blitt skrevet om i en rekke nasjonale aviser og er inn fare for å bli ødelagt. Hvis du kommer til å gå gjennom de dam, kan du la bilen stå hjemme eller ned i byen. Det finnes en utmerket buss service, enten de T 6 eller T 8 som du kan ta fra Boronia uansvarlig parkering på den smale landevei ved dammen, betyr at på mer enn én anledning lokal buss serverer har måtte annuleres parkeringen gjør det umulig å passere, dette skaper en fare for lokale nødnummeret og for folk som prøver å komme til og fra sine hjem. Jeg tror folk å lese avisen artikler har feil inntrykk av hva vi har på Gaddings dam. Det er ikke et kommersielt feriested ved sjøen sted. Det er et rolig Moorside dam, med et lite sandy område. . . De dam seg selv er ikke passende eller stor nok for vannsport eller trygg nok for svømming, med mindre du er en opplevelse wild svømmer. vannet er svært kaldt og har farlig understrømninger. Den er flott for en rolig familie piknik. Det er ikke egnet til en høylytt, beach party. arrangement! ! De dam er ikke tilgjengelig med bil, er det en god 20 minutters opp bakken gange fra den eneste veien (lumbutts rd, som har en 60 km/t fartsgrense, så passer ikke til badety kledde barn i flipflops skal jeg vandrer rundt på! ) Det ser ikke ut til å ha dårlig samling, så kan du ta med deg alt søppel med deg hjem. . . Hvis du bryter flasker, bør du ta de knust glass hjem også, så for all del ikke begrave den i sanden til lokale sauer for å gjøre seg selv på når du er borte. Parkering på puben er for kunder. . . gjerne dra dit for aumbutts, og vær park som fast på veggen som du kan, for å aktivere andre kjøretøyer som du kan sende deg forbi. . . kan du øve deg på å snu også, er det en smal vei og sedvane at møtende biler til å reversere til nærmeste passerer sted, som kan være deg! Gled deg over, men husk at dette er et rolig landskap sted, ikke Benidorm! !

Hidden Gem
okt. 2021 • Par
We took the easy route up from the White House Inn and the views were stunning. We have had mixed reviews from others who have visited some great some not but when we got to the little beach and it is little, we were pleasantly surprised. Perfectly formed with soft clean sand lovingly cared for and a delight to visit. The sun was out which attracted a few brave souls to have a dip in the clear water…we left that bit to our pooches Pippa and Eric 😂. Overall a great place to visit 👍

Englands highest beach!!
sep. 2021
Quite a hike but stunning and unique views. There are two routes, one easy and one more challenging and dangerous.

Perfect spot
sep. 2021 • Venner
I read that this was the highest beach in England but that it was actually a small muddy area that was often submerged. I can tell you this is definitely the highest beach in England The sand is soft on your feet 🦶 and fairly Sandy in colour, quite rocky to walk into the water, but if you walk in on the right hand side it’s softer. The water is very clean and perfect for swimming 🏊‍♀️ take your picnic, and enjoy this beautiful spot.

Great place for walks and wild swims
aug. 2021 • Alene
Some of these other reviews are making me laugh! Where did you think you were going?

Gaddings Dam is a fab place to go for a walk, swim, and picnic. It's a lovely walk to get there (there are a few routes up so you can choose the best way for your group - there is parking in nearby Todmorden but it will be a longer walk from there, nice route though!)

It is a great swimming spot and after a couple of sunny days the water is a very nice temp! Of course it is wild swimming so necessary precautions should be taken (the Gaddings Dam website gives good advice). A lovely spot to stop off if you're heading off on a longer walk too.

It's well maintained, massive thanks to the Gaddings Dam Friends group and volunteers who look after the Dam.

There aren't any toilets or other facilities but not sure where that idea has come from, it's literally a disused Dam on the moors (not a holiday village!)

All in all a fab day out and a great spot for a regular wild swim if you live local. Head to Hollingworth Lake in Littleborough if you're looking for toilets, car parks and hot dogs :)

Break your necks
aug. 2021 • Familie
If you want to climb a steep hill for a mile to find a small reservoir with about 10 square feet of “beach” and then break your necks going back down the hill again, this is for you. Leave granny and the pushchair at home (unless granny’s mentioned you in her will).

Lovely day out
jun. 2021 • Par
a long hard walk to top of the hill but the views are worth it. Only a small piece of sand but you can sit all around the dam. We went on very hot day so a lot of people swimming. Came down the easy way which is to the right as you look at the hill. Took half hour longer to get down but so much easier. Loved it

Great spot ! Great views and great walk
nov. 2020 • Par
Well after reading the reviews we was unsure what to expect .. firstly people need to remember it’s not Blackpool. It’s a little spot hidden away.

It’s a fab walk up a very steep hill firstly. So be expected to keep walking and walking and walking.
We thought we was never going to get their ha. We didn’t realise their was two ways up , we took the long hard route up ( which we enjoyed ) and on our way down we took the short route and that route was easier for the children that was climbing up and people who would like a softer route up.

So firstly yes parking , we was shocked their is limited parking but not 3/4 spaces like some have said their was 8 cars parked and prob room for little more. The houses located next to the dam and pub are beautiful, be polite and say hello you are in their neighbourhood and show respect like you we would like.
Granted we came on a cold day and it was fairly busy so I can only Imagine what it’s like on a warm summer day. It was very clean no litter no cigarettes butts but lots of sheep poo ha ha.

Once your at the top wow you won’t be disappointed, I was very surprised when reaching the little beach area, we sat down and just looked at the little stretch of hidden beach. It was very foggy so we couldn’t see far but what we could we loved.

All in all great walk , great views and lovely afternoon for a couples walk.

A good walk

The area is lovely and it's a scenic walk to the dam. I dont really know what those who criticise the beach were expecting - it's Todmorden not Bondi. Well worth the walk, particularly with our dog.

Open water swimming paradise

I swim here regularly each year and love the dam. Very clean and great views. In terms of the attraction of the beach, it's probably ok for little ones but makes a good stopover for anyone walking to studley pike.
