Sheffield Country Walk
You can walk all the way around the edge of Sheffield. The guide book includes maps showing the 10 sections of the Sheffield Country Walk - just over 54miles (87.3km) in total.
Describing all the wonders that one could find within range of a summer morning walk in the Sheffiled area, John Thomas in the Sheffield Independent wrote of enjoying: '..the ever fresh variety of nature - little winding rivers, fair but abruptly rising hills, long valleys which peep into each other, copses and woods of all ages decaying or rejoicing in the strength and abundance of their sap - these and thousand other beauties, incuding the remains of the works of the long-gone inhabitants of the district'' That was in 1830. The Sheffield Country Walk invites you to enjoy 'hese 'beauties' today.
