Small little nature reserve based around the banks and surrounds of the Red River. It gets its name from the iron oxide that ran from the Loscoe Pit (now the site of a park), turning it red. If you get to the top end of the reserve, cross over the bridge and follow the footpath through the field. It snakes up the hill and you and go as far as Loscoe Denby Lane near the farm or all the way to the church at Denby. Makes a great little walk.

Took a nice gentle walk here with the dog. There were lots of interesting things to see (bird and butterfly wise) though I think we took an 'unofficial' path back to the start. Made for a pleasant short journey break en route elsewhere.

Very pleasant short walk, quite busy with dog walkers and families. Local history and information about nature sign posted.

Been coming to red River for years, it's quiet and peaceful and my dogs love it, shame some ignorant people don't clean up after their dogs.🤬

A nice quiet area for a pleasant walk, leading to footpaths across the fields. The red river is all but dried up at the moment.
