I love this place, I'm a regular visitor. It's full of nature and history and changes lots with the seasons. Perfect place to take kids or for dog walkers. Little cafe there too. Thoroughly recommend it.

How can you fault nature at it's best, as it is in this lovely area. You'd be hard pushed to find a nicer area to stroll through or spend some time just soaking up the natural environment here.

Driving into Sheffield from Manchester, i took a slight detour to drive in through the Rivelin Valley and admire the nature park. Stunning natural valley, with kiddie parks, toilets, cafes and parking - all within the city boundaries. Perfect way to get away from it...More

Rivelin river was a source of power for several industries over the years. Now it provides a lovely picturesque walk especially in the summer months. A great place to bring kids lots to do and see as well as places to eat.

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