Help connect Sheffield

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Sheffield’s Slow Ways.

Cyclists can follow a lot of the route, but must take a bridleway further south across Derwent moor, should pass through Moorwood at the end of Rodside instead of taking the footpath, and when crossing the Rivelin at Tofts will have to work a route out to get to the top of Crookes, probably using Long Lane, etc. Only the crossing of Derwent Moor has rough ground and there is a paved path up half of it and a good track across the heather thereafter. The ground is road until you turn off to climb the moor. You can walk 5 minutes up the road to see a small statue to the Dambusters and also a memorial behind a locked gate. At the end of Conduit Road in Sheffield, is Weston Park museum, which is free, although it's worth a trip in itself. Overall, I prefer the UppShe3 route, which stays by the Rivelin, rather than taking the road, but you do get to see more on this one, walking up on the hillside along the valley. The turn-off from the side of Ladybower up to Derwent Moor is shortly after a loop in the path to cross over a stream via a bridge. At the turn-off, there is a gate across the road, and another gate next to it which is across the uphill path that you want. The path passes along the top edge of some trees and at the end of that, cross the open moor on a maze of tracks to get up to the 4 or 5-way junction on top of Derwent Moor. After a long march along the road at RodSide, the path to turn onto is at a 3-way road junction, with the path forming a fourth way. The path goes below the southern farm edge, over the road, through some allotments, and then into the carpark where you turn uphill, crossing the road and a stile, and climb Jackey Bank up to a housing estate. Like the other reviewer, I wasn't keen on some of the road sections....

Can be muddy in places and some road crossing need extra care. To Moscar, this path is now a bridleway, so good job I didn’t have words with the cyclists. We cross over the popular and well walked Derwent Edge path with it’s outcrops, each with a name that someone imagined perhaps after a pint or three. Moscar Cross Road, a Byway fortunately remains closed to four wheel vehicles until 31 May so it’s peaceful apart from the distant roar of motor bikes on the main road. Our path leaves the road, well signed by Bradfield Parish Council and just over the wall is a seat with a great view and close to half way. The busy road crossing needs care but is not dangerous....

I started at Sheffield station and finished at Swallownest, 2 hours 10 minutes later with no stops and only a little dithering. I'd characterise the route as having 3 sections: city streets and park paths, woods and fields in the outer part of the city and a section on roads from Woodhouse station to the end. Go to the end of StradBroke at Sheffield Road and follow that to Beaverhill Road and go down there to rejoin the bridleway though Flockton (who were Sheffield architects) Park, or stay on the road to the railway station and rejoin at Furnace Lane. Later on, the path after crossing the railway at Woodhouse station is found by turning 180 degrees at the foot of the steps on the far side. At the top of the climb, Manor Lane, just off City road has a fish and chip shop. The next shops are on Furnace Lane, after Woodhouse station - a chippie and a paper shop....

There's a barrier across the road and a squeeze gate to it's left. The squeeze gate is where you want to go. From there, its a long walk down Plank Gate. Towards the end of Plank Gate, you have to leave the main track as it goes uphill. The public footpath goes around the side of the gate (there's a very low stile). It's easy to miss the turn off (I did) at the bottom end of the wood. There is a place on this section where the path goes down to the river. After heavy rain it's entirely likely that the path goes *into* the river so you might need to backtrack. The path is easy to follow down to a bridge at Neepsend and it's all streets and pavements to the end. It's a bit twisty around Kelham Island, where you'll find lots of pubs and cafes, but it's easy to follow after that....

It starts in the pleasant town of Dronfield with a walk through quiet residential roads. You walk past the water tower (a water tower) and turn right at The Water Tower (a pub, sadly closed atm), then there’s a pleasant walk down, and then up through parkland and out into suburbia past the famous green towers....

This route isn't the shortest and most direct but it takes in Rother Valley Country Park and Shire Brook nature reserve, which are worth visits in themselves. Most is on good paths, often beside the road, with just a few stretches of dirt path beside the river Rother near the start and through the first half of Shire Brook Valley nature reserve. If you stick to the route, there are significant flights of steps at railway lines (with a ramp for bikes), a chicane next to them, and a couple of smaller, rougher flights in woods which can be avoided with a little planning. The TPT and you part ways when you turn off to walk beside Rother Valley's lake but if you want to avoid the railway footbridges and a few wooden steps in the wood next to them, you can keep following the TPT until the routes join again at the top end of Rother valley park. Soon after passing the Cumberland pub, turn right down some steps and follow the dirt path to a meeting of ways. Again, the route could do with some refinement here but as long as you keep going East/West (or vice versa) you'll end up in the right place as the whole reserve and the main paths are oriented this way. Where the route crosses Richmond Road, you have to option of a 10-15 minute detour up Richmond Park Road to the massive Asda which has a cafe and toilets (check web site for cafe opening times). If you want to save your aching feet and cut out that climb, carry on to the end of Maltravers, go down Broad Street to Park Square (possibly popping into the Wonkeresque Granelli's sweet shop), and climb the steps on the left and keep left to reach the path to the railway station....

Allow enough time to get to the edge of Sheffield, which for me took 5 hours, so you aren't caught in the dark. Dogs may not be allowed on Stanage Edge at times because of nesting birds near the path. The weather there can be be brutal, with Stanage Edge particularly being very exposed. At the top, it's across grassy, heather moors to a swampy track approaching Moscar Cross before going down to the path along Stanage edge which is mostly rocky. The path turns wet, grassy and muddy again, except for the paved sections, as you skirt Redmires Reservoirs but improves once you leave it, passing beside and through woodlands on the outskirts of Sheffield. Pay attention to where you leave Stanage Edge and take the path to Stanage Pole and Redmires. The route after turning off The Conduit towards the Sportsman pub just passes between some football fields with no path once you've turned. Just before the path rejoins the road, theres an almost 180 degree turn that goes a little way downhill in almost the reverse direction and a minute or so later, you zig (or zag) again to go down to Manchester road. If you're prepared to carry on a bit further along Stanage Edge, beyond the Stanage Pole turnoff, there is Robin Hood's Cave, though it's unlikely Robin ever used it. Stanage Edge is also the place Keira Knightly stood on the cliff top for a famous scene in Pride And Prejudice. There are temporary path closures on the Stanage Pole to Redmires section until the end of March 2024 for tree felling. Therefore, go down Clough Fields but take the public footpath on the left about half way along - you can see it on a map - and follow that path to join another path that climbs up from Back Lane. Follow the joined path up into the stable yard, to resume the route. From the old Lodge Moor hospital there is the 51 to Sheffield, from Crookes shops there is the 52, and from Glossop Road onwards there are a number of services, although you're near the end by then....

This route reflects my experience of following SHESWA one - it is essentially the same route but plotted in a way that should make it easier to follow, particularly from Sheffield to Swallownest and reflect what the best paths do on the ground. I also made a few very minor changes to streamline the route, so it is not quite what I walked. For a more detailed review with pictures, see SHESWA one....

We follow the tarmac paths uphill, turning left below the steps then right along Raynald Road. The sharp left turn down to Archdale Road starts further south than the GPX file (which may show a path that used to exist but was blocked by new houses) suggests. We turn left down Fretson Road then right round The Circle and Circlc Close to a small park, which we cross to reach Prince of Wales Road, the A6102 dual carriageway, which can be safely crossed using pelican crossings to the left. We continue down Ravencarr Road and turn right past the Alison Business Centre on a tarmac path which leads us into a park and across Castlebeck Avenue. We cross Richmond Road and turn left over the A57, then take the TransPennine Trail cycle path right, which follows the A57 down into Smelter Wood....

Hathersage Moor then awaits, and is overgrown - the path on the route is quite vague here, and we ended up just cutting across it, through some bogs, due to a lack of defined path. The final stretch from Hathersage Moor to the town itself is mostly very pleasant, across a few fields, largely downhill (notably steep in places), through a field containing cows, and finally onto some roads. Overall, a very pleasant if challenging walk, with some considerable obstacles along the way (bogs, roads, steep inclines / declines, uneven terrain), which makes it fairly inaccessible for around 40-50% of it....

From Stockbridge it's an immediate climb away from the main road with the view across the valley improving all the way. The view then changes to the valley of reservoirs on the Ewden Beck. The contour walk towards Coumes Vale Plantation offers a stunning view over Oughtibridge towards Sheffield and the Beech tree leaves provide a golden carpet on the path. Initially with a green view into the valley although a brief sleet shower clouded my appreciation of it. I wondered why the route moves to the busy road, while our path is very open the Slow Way is surrounded by large car sales sites....

Crossing the Meers Brook at the exit from the nature reserve this route climbs again to pass the impressive green towers before a steady roadside descent into Sheffield passing the huge bus depot and a castle like lodge. I didn't like what I'm sure is an unnecessary climb to the green towers, I'm sure there must be a better route that continues downwards....

A bit of road walking with light controlled crossings then onto the Sheaf river side walk starting where the water goes underground and under the railway station. We meet the Sheffield Country Walk at a ford with no bridge, stones just kept my boots from over topping. Once on the south bank we stay that side, the main trail crosses again after our route turns to head south through Ince Piece Wood and crossing Back Lane before returning to an urban landscape and roads that lead to the forlorn bus stop which to my mind is the wrongly located Eckington meeting point....

We cross Green Lane and continue down Callywhite Lane, then turn left into Cliffe Park slightly further west than the GPX line, and follow the path out right to join the public footpath that comes up through industrial buildings. We turn left to join this path, then right a short distance along Stonelow Road then left up Oakhill Road, turning left onto Holmesdale Road where there are shops. On the far side, we turn left using the pavement, which is some distance from the road, and follow it along Norton Avenue and Hemsworth Road then a short distance up Blackstock Road to a gap in the hedge where we cross and continue along Hemsworth Road, turning right down Ashbury Lane and continuing down the path at its end, which crosses a golf course between fences and leads into Carr Wood. We follow the paved path below the road to the right, following Callow Road below the tower blocks then going left up Callow Drive to find the surfaced path (with steps) past Gleadless Medical Centre to Gleadless Road, We turn left and cross at the traffic lights, turning right up Daresbury Road, which leads to East Bank Road, which we cross at the lights then follow down the hill to the left....

We cross High Street and go straight on down Waingate to cross the river Sheaf, then turn right along the riverside path, which we follow under the A61, turning left just before the railway bridge, then right across Savile Street (using pelican crossings) and up Spital Hill. Beyond the houses we take the path up steps to the left, taking the left branch where it forks and following past the adventure playground to the cemetery wall, where we turn sharp left to find the main entrance to the cemetery. We take a surfaced path straight on down to Firshill Crescent, where we turn right, then left onto Firshill Rise. The path through the park is surfaced, and steepens as it approaches Elm Lane, with steps at the top, We go left and cross the junction onto Buchanan Road, taking the vehicle access road right into the park, where we continue down the surfaced path beyond the car park. Our path goes along the edge of several fields (some of which were very wet and muddy when I walked them) then steeply up the hill to meet the bridlepath along the top, where we go left a short distance then right down into a new housing estate, which unfortunately complicates navigation - we turn right at Chapel Road then left down the first road (Willow Crescent?) and taking another alleyway left, which crosses Willow Crescent again to pick up the old path to the right which leads easily down to Ecclesfield Road, where we go left under the first railway bridge, then take the second road leaving the roundabout to the Chapeltown meeting point at the railway station....

Walked from Dronfield to Sheffield.This is almost a very good route, but the plotting is wayward in important places and the dangerous road crossing mentioned by the first reviewer can and should be avoided. When walking north from Dronfield, note that the footpaths can only be reached from Wilson Road at the sign where the first footpath goes left - the footpath diamond on the OS map on the cul de sac is wrong. The plotting of the route down East Bank Road suggests a route through the parkland that doesn't exist....

Started in Rotherham to head back to Sheffield from Rotherham Station, and we were aware that some of the route was shut, but expected clear signage to get back onto the canal route via main roads.

Philippa Norwood

Walk this route

On leaving Hathersage village, North of the main road to Sheffield, in the first wood, when in doubt stick to tracks on the downhill (South) side of the wood, always heading East. When leaving the Limb Valley, the path continues next to the bus stop on the opposite side of the road. The only other stop-off without leaving the route is the Hardy Pick pub where Little London Road meets Broadfield Way. As you reach the road when exiting the Limb Valley, it's well worth taking 10 minutes to look around Whinfell Quarry Garden which is almost immediately left of the valley exit. There is a section as you leave the Tesco by the road where the route goes into a tiny gap in the bushes. Instead, keep going up the road from the Tesco and rejoin the route at the top of Troutback Road about 150m further on. Another obstruction is a fence blocking the footbridge across the river on Broadfield Road, just before Clyde Road. You can go down Clyde Road but a better route is my old walk to work which is a bit nicer. This was not to turn off Little London Road at Broadfield but to carry on down Little London Road until it goes under the bridge and rather than passing under, carry on down the path....

Walk this route

Once you reach the road at Worrall, it's mostly a case of going straight along in the same direction, until you reach the Langsett Road turn-off: no navigation needed. At Wadsley, you'll pass the Sportsman pub and there's a paper shop across the road if you feel you've earned some sweeties. Just after that, on Langsett Road, there is the Hillsborough bus interchange. There is then a period of walking down beside the dual carriageway but once you turn off that into Kelham Island, you're in the city centre and you'll find increasing numbers of places to stop, shop or sit down. The path Eastwards out of Bolsterstone that parallels Sunny Bank Road goes along the northern edge of a copse. The other is, after coming out of the wood at Glen Howe Park, the public footpath turns South East and eventually goes through what looks like someone's garden gate to join the driveway that links to Raynor Sike Lane ( https://www.osmap.uk/#19/53.44133/-1.56132 ). I have written to the council to prevent a reoccurence, but if you should run into these despicable devil-birds, I would suggest doing as I did, which is to return to the exit from Glen Howe Park wood and instead extend your route along the westward path until you reach the road. Then you can go South and South East to Bent Hills Lane and Raynor Sike Lane and then East to rejoin the route at Acre Lane....
