Sheffield Country Walks
Walks in the neighbourhood of Sheffield have a long history. John Thomas published a sample of some loose sketches of such walks in the ‘Sheffield Independent’ in the summers of 1830 and 1831, including walks based on Ecclesfield, Dore and Bradfield. The collection was published in book form in 1831, and a further book of walks appeared in 1844, this second volume including walks around Darnall, the Manor, Birley Vale, Beauchief and Wharncliffe. In the first volume, he hoped to demonstrate how, within the range of a summer morning walk, it was possible to enjoy ‘the ever fresh variety of nature – little winding rivers, fair but abruptly rising hills, long valleys which peep into each other, copses and woods of all ages decaying or rejoicing in the strength and abundance of their sap – these and a thousand other beauties, including the remains of the works of the long-gone inhabitants of the district’. Site includes a range of historical descriptions from walking through Eckington to Coal Aston, Coal Aston to Totley, Totley to Upper Burbage Bridges, Upper Burbage Bridges to Moscar, scar to High Bradfield, High Bradfield to Woodseats, Woodseats to Meadowhall, Meadowhall to Treeton, Treeton to Rother Valley Country Park and Rother Valley Country Park to Eckington.
