We’re just over a month away from the second annual Sheffield Walking Festival. Looking to build on the success of last year’s festival, the 2017 iteration will take place over 10 days from 8 – 17 September.
There will be 34 routes in total, celebrating both urban Sheffield and the surrounding areas including the Peak District. Countryside walks visit Wharncliffe Heath, Bolsterstone and the Ewden Valley, follow the course of the great Sheffield Flood, explore the Eastern Moors with rangers from the Peak National Park and the naked people of a lost sculpture trail.
Other highlights include tackling the Sheffield Round Walk in reverse, a 15 mile Peakland walk to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of the Sheffield Walking Group and the chance walk around Ladybower Reservoir with TV presenter Andrew White.
