Stocksbridge Walks

Walks in the Stocksbridge Area are on Wednesday mornings starting at 10.30

The Stocksbridge walk leaders have devised a clever way to get around the fact that they have no community meeting point. They meet at a different location each week and circulate a programme of walks each month so their walkers know where to meet on any given day. February 2024 walks for the Stocksbridge group will be at Oxspring on 7th, Wortley Club on 14th,  Wentworth on 21st and Lower Bradfield on 28th.

The area link volunteers for walks in the Stocksbridge area are Chris Morris and John Gosling.

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

  

Stocksbridge walk locations are not well served by public transport but to keep car usage to a minimum and to ensure that no one without transport misses out they car-share. If you  live in Stocksbridge and need help with transport to access the Stocksbridge walks please contact the Step Out Sheffield Helpline on 07505639524.

Very few Stocksbridge walk locations have public toilets. Lower Bradfield, Elsecar and Langsett Barn are the exceptions. Also, provided you are provided to patronise the venue, there is a pub cafe at Wortley, Ye Olde Mustard Pot at Midhopestones and the Rockingham Arms at Wentworth. 

To encourage participants to socialise after the walk Stocksbridge volunteers provide (provided it isn't too wet or windy) refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) at the end of the walk.

To ensure that walkers of all abilities can join these walks Stocksbridge volunteer walk leaders provide three walks each week from a full hour of walking at a fairly brisk pace, to up to an hour of walking at a steady pace to 30-45 minutes of walking at a leisurely pace.
