Walking South Yorkshire

Walking South Yorkshire

by: Rob Haslam
This nicely produced guide is a collection of 30 circular walks, between 2 and 8 miles in length, that explore the ancient woodland and rural visitor attractions around Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley. All the walks can be reached by public transport from Sheffield, Meadowhall, Rotherham and Barnsley, and each walk features detailed route directions, combined with a thorough insight into the county's rich, yet little-known, heritage of ancient woodland.

This guide is a visual delight with lots of stunning colour photography throughout and OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping of all the routes. Each walk chapter begins with a short introduction to the walk and practical information including distance, starting grid reference, parking, public transport, terrain and refreshment locations. This is followed by a detailed route finding section with numbered paragraphs linked to numbers on the OS route maps.
