In winter the river can be quite a loud 'babbling brook'.

The Wyming Brook is a river in the City of Sheffield, England. Its source is the Redmires Reservoirs near the Hallam Moors. It flows in a northeasterly direction for over a kilometer down quite steep terrain into the lower of the Rivelin Dams. There is a path that runs alongside the brook which is popular with walkers. The path can be quite steep, with it and the brook falling over 100 m in a kilometre. The river flows almost its entire length within the Wyming Brook Nature Reserve. The surrounds are wooded near the bottom and more open near the top, with stunning views of the Rivelin Valley and beyond.
