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 kilometre down quite steep terrain into an underground chamber where it joins the Rivelin tunnel before it flows into the lower of the Rivelin Dams.[1] 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. Wildlife found around Wyming Brook includes the dipper and the crossbill.[2] Above, and to the west of the watercourse on Ash Cabin Flat is an embanked stone circle, dating to the Bronze Age.[3]
