The canal basin is a very dangerous place at night. There are no lights and no safety measures are in place. 2 deaths have occurred recently. Be very careful.

We walked from Victoria Quays to Meadowhall. It is a really lovely part of Sheffield, with interesting history. The path is really comfortable, the scenery is beautiful.

It just a lovely walk and it's started to get revamped after not being to bad. Nice little break watching the boats and that. Cannot say any thing more but away from traffic and can enjoy the quite area in a city.

Good for a walk but lots of litter and dodgy youths lurking about. Lots of fishing going on but is it right to take the fish away?
