Sheffield from Above

Saturday 8th January 2010

Conquer three of East Sheffield's peaks for outstanding views over the Steel City, and explore hidden fragments of countryside in the industrial end of the city. This circular walk will take in Skye Edge, Seventy Acre Hill and the prehistoric hill fort at Wincobank Hill. On the way we'll pass the medieval Manor Lodge, visit ancient woodlands, drop in to Sheffield's most haunted pub, and finally return to the city along the Five Weirs Walk.
