Today we went for a walk around the area of the Moors near Hatfield and Blanton just off the A614. This is the only area of the moors we have visited and is a very peaceful (apparent from the occasional plane from the airport) spot for a walk. This time of year the ground is a little muddy so boots... More

I visited the east part of the reserve. I felt it could have been signposted better, particularly to the car park(s?). There wasn't a large amount of wildlife evident, just grazing sheep and a few wildflowers. I will try to go on a guided walk next time as I have found this is the best way of learning the best...

I was lucky to have a guide to explain some of the natural features of this location at one of the first 'photography golden hours' of this year. Even without that golden glow it is a special place that extends as far as the eye can see. It is rich in diverse habitats and almost feels 'of another world.' It... More

Very peaceful walk, hardly any sound at all. There is very limited wildlife but lots of opportunities for photographers of fungi. The walks could be signposted better, on a number of occasions I had to refer to google maps to make sure I read having the correct way. Don't let this put you off however.

I walk this area quite often, there are neumerous marked walks of different lengths all of which are enjoyable and not difficult in any way.Strange thing about this place is there is very little wildlife to see, dont know why ? Lots of signage about snakes but in reality you need to be David Attenborough to find them.

We visit Hatfield Moors on a regular basis and have noticed an increase of dog faeces littering the paths. We have also witnessed a dog owner repeatedly throwing a stick into one of the lakes for his dog to fetch - the lake was heavily populated with geese at the time. On another occasion a dog owner was throwing a... More

This is a lovely place to visit whether its with your children/friends or dogs and its all free. Take a stroll in the peaceful surroundings and you will come across a lake. Have three or four visits throughout the year and note the seasonal changes .

Driven past the sign on the A614 many times and eventually wandered over via the old Lindholme airfield towards Lindholme Hall. Was wonderful. Decided to go to the car park just South of Lindholme and have a wander. Just a whisper of traffic and complete solitude. Seems to be many miles of trails so going back with a picnic. A... More

My husband and I had the most amazing day out on a Bank Holiday Monday. We took a trip out Doncaster way to the Humberhead Peatlands, to a Reserve on Thorne moors. Parking in Moorends , we walked down Grange road to reach the access point , through some yellow barriers and onto a disused road that once was used... More
