  • Healey Dell is a lovely nature reserve with so many different paths and views! Crossing the viaduct and then dropping down to the waterfalls underneath is a must. Great place to walk dogs or just surr...  more »

  • It still feels like this is a secret place. it's never busy and is great to amble along looking at the wild flowers and trees. I've been walking my dog here several times a week for a few years. We've seen deer, heron, ducks and sheep along with loads of spawning frogs and bird life. Good for a couple of hours in any weather. with lots of opportunities to spot and photograph wildlife and plants / fungi.
  • Photos taken July 2016 amazing views, good trek, nice to take the children for a family walk with or without your dog. There is a picknic area. Easy to get to, off road parking
  • It's a nice walk, and truly wonderful how much greenery and wilderness is down there, you wouldn't think so looking from the road, top notch.
  • This place is absolutely beautiful. It has some nice trails to walk along the river Spodden, passing ruins of old mills and water works. The main attraction is the old railway viaduct in the valley, that stands around 150ft above the river. However for me, the true beauty of Healey Dell lies within the variety of wild life that lives off the beaten track. It's an excellent place for photography, bird watching and animal tracking. The only negative comment I can make about this place is that, people often wild camp there leaving behind fire pits, scorched rocks and litter, which is an eye sore to anybody who appreciates the great outdoors. If you do visit Healey Dell, please, leave it how you find it, or better!
  • Love this place. We walk the dogs here most weekends
