Five Weirs/Canal - Thursday 24th January

Post  Steve M on Mon Dec 24, 2012 9:13 am

Five Weirs/Canal - Thursday 24th January
A 7 mile walk, which is completely flat, through the Lower Don Valley. Starting from opposite the Sheffield Arena, the walk takes us into the centre of Sheffield by way of the canal, before returning to the start along the 5 Weirs walk on the River Don. The charming and charachterful Wentworth House Hotel will be the lunch stop if anybody fancies a bite to eat after the walk.

Details
Meet outside the Noose and Gibbet, 97 Broughton Lane, Sheffield S9 2DE at 10.00

BTW, are you sure this is 7 miles, as I thought it was 5 miles linear from town to Meadowhall. I know we're not going as far as Meadowhall, but 3 miles round trip from arena to Meadowhall seems a lot uuh
(Bit daft asking really, as you'll only fob me off with some cock & bull story anyway haha )

No bull! Hand on heart, I don't know how far it is. As it normally takes just under 2 .5 hours to complete, at @ 3mph, then I'm guessing it's 7 miles!

If anyone is able t calculate thedistance exactly with GPSI would be much abliged!

After studying the map for a while, I will concede that you are probably right, 5 miles is to the other side of Meadowhall, so it is quite probable that it's 1 1/2 miles from the Arena to the back of Meadowhall. Sorry for doubting you, oh illustrious leader! worship

I 'guessed' todays walk at 9 miles when I wrote it up, based on how long it had taken us to complete it previously. Just before the end of it several people suggested that it was nowhere near 9, but when 2 people checked their GPS's they came up with 9.6 and 9.9, so I was a bit out with this one! If anybody's wondering about the GPS's discrepancies we reckon it was down to how far off course one of them went for a comfort break Embarassed .

Lol! Just a simple case of dumb blond with a hint of mis-communication! giggle

A lovely walk, expertly organised with military precision, & no-one slipped on the ice, falling into the canal - result! whee

Thank you to all my fellow walkers for helping with the shortening & then lengthening of the route.
Nice to visit Steve on my way home - I even put my nursing/caring skills into practice & made him a cup of tea coffee
Glad to see you on your feet Steve thumb
