Friday Walks

RWW SOS logo 

Why not end your week with a walk? There are just two Friday walks at present, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

 

For lots more details about the walk you are interested in simply click on the name of that walk below. 

The Friday walks are a morning walk around Norfolk Heritage Park the oldest Sheffield Park, and an afternoon in the Shirebrook valley nature reserve, Woodhouse.

Norfolk Heritage Park, is the oldest of Sheffield’s municipal Parks in the city. It was gifted by the Duke of Norfolk in 1910 and is distinguished by its wide carriage-drive around the perimeter of the 30 hectare site. The drive is well surfaced and therefore good for walking. unfortunately, it isn’t ideal for wheelchairs because the park is built on the hillside.  The centre in the park provides a comfortable meeting point and facilities there include a café.

Woodhouse offers a short flat walk suitable for wheelchairs in addition to longer walks in the Shirebrook valley. There are numerous footpaths down into the valley providing a wide variety of different walking routes. The Trans Pennine Trail increases the range of walking routes even further, running as it does alongside the Shirebrook Valley nature reserve.

Before the pandemic we also had a walk from Graves Health and Sports Centre on Bochum parkway. We hope to reinstate this walk as soon as we've recruited and trained another volunteer walk leader to support it. Graves Health and Sports Centre, is located a very short walk from Graves Park which offers a wide choice of alternative routes on well surfaced paths.
