Having visited Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet and the Shepherd Wheel quite recently, I decided to make the most of the only sunny day on the August Bank Holiday and explore the Rivelin Valley - something that I had never done before. Relying on the Sunday buses, I took the 81/82 from Snig Hill in Sheffield to Hall Park Head in Stannington,... More

This is a beautiful little trail, with little dens and waterfalls. It's great for a peaceful walk or photographing. The colours at autumn are beautiful. Highly recommended

This is a good place for a nice refreshing walk. It's very popular with runners, bike riders and dog walkers depending on the time you go. There is a decent park for the kids, which could do with a little modernising but it's still ok. There is a cafe which has a good choice but is a little expensive, there... More

Absolutely wonderful place to visit. We parked up the valley and walked down towards the parks. So much to see and enjoy. Kids loved the stepping stones and things to explore. The park at the end (or start!) was fantastic. Kids loved the splash areas. Will definitely visit again.

trying to retrace my younger days I took my Granddaughters to Rivelin and was very much surprised how little it had changed from the late 50's to now . The sun was shining and the park was full but not over crowded my two granddaughters played on the swings and slides in fact everything while I sat on the benches... More

Had a lovely walk through the trail. Lots of beautiful scenery, waterfalls and stepping stones keeps things entertaining. At the end of the trail is a lovely park, cafe and plenty of space for your own picnic. There is also some shallow river where children can paddle and fish with nets and there are some great shallow splash pools just... More

I'll start with the postcode I used from trip advisor it took me to the wrong place the postcode for the start is s6 5fa(furthest from the Cafe) s6 5ge(parking near the Cafe). But once we got there it was really fun for a 9 year old who wants an adventure and for a dog that wants to walk off... More

We take this walk a few times a year and each season delivers a different atmosphere. Starting from Malin Bridge heading up the valley you can follow the river all the way into the Peak District through Moscar and onto Stanage Edge. Safe for children and away from the traffic , this can be a nice Sunday stroll or the... More

http://mascribbling.blogspot.co.uk/ added the pics in my blog. Stumbled on a pleasant riverside walk in Sheffield city. I have been living in Sheffield for more than 3 years. Never ever visited this beautiful place and would gladly recommend, as “must go” place, for the people of Sheffield. The Reveling Valley Nature Trail is its name. A lovely water stream running all...
