Parkwood Springs - Thurs 28th March

Post  Admin on Fri Feb 22, 2013 11:03 pm

Thursday 28th March – Parkwood Springs
This walk offers the opportunity to check out some of the best views of Sheffield City Centre, and to have a look at the proposed new country park at the same time too. This is a 6 mile walk which has one huge hill at the start of the walk, and can also get very muddy at times. The walk also takes us through the little known Wardsend Cemetery, and on part of the Upper Don Valley trail.

Details.
Meet outside the Gardeners Arms, 105 Neepsend Lane, S3 8AT at 10.0. On street parking available close by, First bus no 53 stops outside the pub.

As the walk is fairly close to me, I might do a recce before it to find somewhere suitable for the after walk refreshments. The Gardeners is a great pub, but I'm not sure whether they do food. I've never seen any on the previous visits I've made there in the evening.

The paths are ok for this walk, so unless there's a huge amount of snow before 10am Thursday the walk will go ahead.

I'm hoping to come on this walk, but set off without me if I'm not there at 10 as I've got a lot to do and I don't know what else may crop up.

Nice clear weather for the lovely views from 'up top', and lots of history today made this a lovely walk. For those who were there, here's a link to the memorial in the cemetary. [Only admins are allowed to see this link]

It makes really interesting reading and makes you feel that the 'obelisk' as they call it ought to be situated somewhere more prominent.

Great food in the Hillsborough Hotel at £2.50 a head yet again!
