“Enjoyable but needs a bit of TLC”
Review of Five Weirs Walk

Five Weirs Walk
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Decided to take this walk to Meadowhall on a nice Summer's day last year.

This is a great way to spend some time seeing a different side of Sheffield. Some of the parts are a bit run down but not too much.

I would recommend this to all as it's an easy walk that finishes in Meadowhall so easy to get back into town.

Not all good walk are in National Parks. This is a walk through a 300 year industrial heritage. The Trust that created this walk have done a marvellous job. Often ugly, often strewn with litter, signage ok but not brilliant, but utterly compelling. Easy to follow from Meadowhall - just follow the river upstream.

Let's cut to the chase. I've done this walk three times now and only every been able to get through the full walk once. The other times have always had something closed. I'm local so know the routes round but for those wanting to do the walk who come from further afield there is the opportunity to get frustrated.

Don't expect too much beauty here as it goes through the heart of industrial Sheffield. Do expect lots to see like the Bailey Bridge (famous in World War 2), Norfolk Bridge and those weirs.
