Your first Peaks visit!
Visiting Sheffield’s iconic Peak District before someone questions your loyalty to God’s Own Country!
You’re a Sheffield student now, and the Peaks are right on your doorstop. Before anyone says ‘you haven’t been to the Peak District yet?!’ — do this. It’s a great ‘lil walk to do with new course-mates or friends, super cheap and super easy.
- Get the 51 bus out all the way to the end and alight at Lodge Moor – it’s just £1 for students! There are stops in Broomhill, on Fulham Road, and on Manchester Road (the road above Ranmoor).
- Walk down Redmires Road from the bus stop.
- Exit the road, and go down a path to the right
- Start exploring! You’ve arrived at Wyming Brook Nature Reserve. There are loads of paths and you can walk for as long or as little as you like – there are beautiful little stepping stones across the brook and fantastic views and you can easily walk around the reservoirs for a round route.
My flatmates and I had a wonderful day out in October. We’d thoroughly recommend it to fellow students – whether you’re a fresher or not!
