Totley Health Walk


Wednesday 10.30 meeting at Totley Library, Baslow Road. 


The first Totley Health Walk was in early January 2004. Since then the group has grown and there are often upwards of 30 people on this walk. The meeting point is Totley Library on Baslow Road which is well served by buses. Walkers assemble every week in time to leave for their walk at 10.30.


The experienced leaders on this walk offer a wide choice of walks from week to week. Totley is very well situated for walking with lots of greenspace around in almost every direction. A shorter, flatter option is offered each week in addition to the main walk which lasts approximately one hour.


In August 2016 the volunteer leaders on this walk extended their repertoire of walks by introducing a monthly ‘bus pass’ walk. So in addition to the main walk and the short walk on these days there is a third walk that begins with a short bus journey.


The community library is staffed by volunteers and one of the ways they fund-raise is to sell tea and coffee after the walk. Many of the walkers return to the library after their walk for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.


Unfortunately, because of the hilly terrain at this area the Totley Health Walk is unsuitable for wheelchairs.


Buses: No 98 and 218. Alight at the stop after the Totley Rise Co-op shop (left hand side travelling from Sheffield centre) and walk back down the hill a short way to pick up the footpath to the library which is set back slightly from the road.
