Step out Sheffield

Friday Walks

The walk starting from Graves Leisure Centre will take place on both 27th December and 3rd January. That is they will not be breaking over the Christmas period. The Centre in the park is closed for the Christmas/New year period so there is no Norfolk Park walk on either 27th December or 3rd January. The Woodhousewalk will take place on 3rd January but not on 27th December. 

The three health walks on Friday include a walk around Norfolk Heritage Park the oldest Sheffield Park, a walk from the newly opened Graves Health and Sports Centre and a walk in the Shirebrook valley nature reserve, Woodhouse.

Norfolk Heritage Park, is the oldest of Sheffield’s municipal Parks in the city. It was gifted by the Duke of Norfolk in 1910 and is distinguished by its wide carriage-drive around the perimeter of the 30 hectare site. The drive is well surfaced and therefore good for walking. unfortunately, it isn’t ideal for wheelchairs because the park is built on the hillside.  The centre in the park provides a comfortable meeting point and facilities there include a café.

Graves Health and Sports Centre, is located a very short walk from Graves Park which offers a wide choice of alternative routes on well surfaced paths. 

Woodhouse offers a short flat walk suitable for wheelchairs in addition to longer walks in the Shirebrook valley. There are numerous footpaths down into the valley providing a wide variety of different walking routes. The Trans Pennine Trail increases the range of walking routes even further, running as it does alongside the Shirebrook Valley nature reserve.
