Sheffield Megatron
Sep 2021
What an amazing experience this. Our guides were Jack and John and extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. It can be a little challenging physically at the very start as the tunnel gets very low (at 63 I had to do it on hands and knees) but with a good core stability, foot placement confidence and occasionally, blind luck I managed not to get wet at all. Good high wellington boots are essential and I wore an old boiler suit I have and it's worth noting it gets very warm down there. It's not advisable to take a ruck-sack as you have to get very low at times and they provide a safety helmet with a light fitted. I found the whole trip exciting and quite eerie being under the City with tunnels, water and of course the Megatron itself. A must do if you can get a ticket. Thank you.

Sheaf and Porter Rivers Trust
Aug 2019
The Sheaf and Porter Rivers Trust have started to organise Urban Caving Tours that are escorted tours in the underground Victorian built arches and caverns that allow various Sheffield rivers to continue to flow underneath the urban sprawl.

Well recommended, although do bear in mind that you will need at least wellingtons, but preferably waders and you have to crawl in some low sections (short distance).

Historically important

The river after which Sheffield is named and the boundary between the ancient kingdoms of Northumbria and Mercia. Hard to believe really! Apart from that, it is perhaps the least interesting of Sheffield's rivers.

Running through the city
Aug 2015 • Solo
The River sheaf runs right through the centre of the city and has a lovely walk along known as five weirs walk - does tend to get a bit litter strewn but a nice change from the roads and paths
