A lovely walk mostly in wooded area running along the river. Lots of Dams, fast flowing waters, stepping stones. Parking by road or saw one car park by a lake. Nice cafe, superb scones. Good play area for small children near the cafe.

This is a good walk on a nice day. The walk alongside the river is very pleasant and surfaces good. You get to see the sites of Sheffield's industrial past, and the cafe at the lower reaches is a bonus.

At the station, hop straight onto the tram for Malin Bridge (buy a return ticket on tram). Easy Walk from there.
