Meet at OS grid reference SK 26277 92697, near Low Bradfield, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
Heritage funded landscape partnerships were created with a view of bringing partners together to work on a range of projects across a landscape in order to bring different heritage themes together. This walk will look at the Sheffield Lakeland Project and we will be able to see physical work on the ground together with hearing about (and possibly seeing) how other ‘community’ based initiatives link to these ‘capital’ works. We will also be able to see how some of this work relates to major issues in the environment; flooding and biodiversity loss.
This walk will be led by the Programme Manager, Keith Tomkins. The walk is approximately 5km, the vast majority on public right of way paths. There are two quite steep, but short ascents, estimated to take 3.5 hours.
Meet at Agden reservoir on Smallfield Road between High and Low Bradfield (directions will be supplied).
Parking is available along the roadside but if it is very popular there is plenty of parking in low Bradfield with a half hour walk up the hill to the meeting point.
This event has been organised by the Yorkshire and North East committee and is a joint event with Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership (supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund).
Please email email@example.com to book, and for any queries on terrain or accessibility.
Full joining instructions will be circulated by email to participants following the booking deadline, Monday 7 June.
