It’s a really lovely walk, nice stepping stones and a flowing river, the occasional duck bobbing along too! Plenty of dogs running around, shallow enough water up the river to let them have a paddle in. Worth the visit, only downside is having to park...More

Not been here before but a lovely natural environment with a bit of history thrown in too. Ideal place for a family walk with a dog. 3 miles each way not at all challenging and a nice cafe halfway.

Rivelin valley offers an excellent chance to explore Sheffield historic water mills, if you then gist Shepherd Wheel in the Prter valley you get the full picture of the rise of Sheffield as a city.

Go here a lot to walk the dog, beautiful location. There are plenty of places to park the car, can be quite busy at weekends especially when the sun is shining.

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