The Sheffield Greenway is a 100-mile walk in and around the city of Sheffield, visiting many of its parks, woods, rivers, countryside and places of historical interest.
By using public transport, the route can be tailor-made to any distance, as demonstrated by this 6.5-mile linear walk from the Sheffield Railway Station to Norton Water Tower. You can literally leave the walk after every single mile and catch a bus back to the city centre.
This stretch of the Southern loop includes sights of special interest such as the Cholera Monument, Norfolk Heritage Park, Black Bank and the glorious ancient woodlands of the Gleadless Valley.
Meet the leader at the tram stop to the rear of Sheffield train station at 10am. Wear comfortable footwear and bring drink & snack.
The walk will be led by Rob Haslam, author of The Sheffield Greenway and Walking South Yorkshire books and one of the main organisers behind Sheffield Walking Festival.
The walk will start at the tram stop to the rear of Sheffield Train Station at 10am. This route is linear finishing in Norton so you will need make your own way back from the finish, but buses are available from nearby Hemsworth Road.
