This is a five mile walk based on the Norfolk Heritage Trail, and includes a lot of Sheffield’s most famous historical landmarks. The ones we'll pass on this walk are The Sweet Factory, The Cholera Monument, Shrewsbury Hospital, Norfolk Park, City Road Cemetery and Manor Lodge.

Meet at Centre in the Park, Norfolk Heritage Park/Guildford Avenue, Sheffield S2 2PL at 10.00.

After the walk there will be the opportunity to have some lunch at the Centre in Norfolk Park.

Norfolk Park is bout half a mile from the station in the direction of Queens Road. What you need to do is to go on to google maps, find Guildford Avenue and then zoom in and find St Aidan's Avenue which goes off Guildford Ave. There is a car park there for the Heritage Centre, which you'll also see on google maps if you zoom in.
If that car park happens to be full there's on-street parking nearby. Good luck!

The 120 bus goes up there, as does the supertram, which may be easier to find 65

Yes I've told her about the tram. Thanks for the bus number though. Incidentally, the person who's enquiring is Kay, the lady who broke her foot some time ago right after she'd got back from a walking holiday in India!

Just putting our names down for a quick stroll round the park. Think we might need the water proofs. Wink

What a lovely little walk, in quite nice weather too. The Heritage centre was a really nice dinner spot at the end too.

Thanks to everybody who turned up - keep your eyes open for another walk next week!
