Very few better places in Sheffield to walk when the weather is fine. I can't wait for the blue bell late April early May. So beautiful.

Great woods,well kept paths, and a chance to enjoy the woods. In Spring vast amounts of bluebells and Spring signs. Ideal place to walk with children pensioners and dogs.

Decent size woods on the edge of the city with many streams running through. Plenty of routes through the woods and very popular with walkers, runners, dogs and kids. Great for a quick 3mile walk, not good for anything much longer- if you're looking for...More
