Join a Heritage Open Days (HoDs) History walk on Parkwood Springs Friday 20th September from 5.30pm.
See the best views in Sheffield and hear how a medieval deer park provided materials for industry, a home for workers, a dump for waste and a platform for guns. But now the deer are back and Parkwood Springs is set to be our country park in the city.
Meet 5.30pm Friday 20th September at the Parkwood Springs car park near the junction of Cooks Wood Road and Shirecliffe Road, S5 8XB. The walk will take about two hours.
On the day you will walk around parts of Parkwood Springs, originally a medieval deer park, now a 150 hectare (370 acre) green open space which the ongoing masterplan sets out make into “Our Country Park In The City”, only a mile from the centre of Sheffield. You will see the best views in the city and hear about the changing uses of the site which has seen woodland industries, farming, quarrying, mining, brick making, landfill and electricity generation. A village has been built, and demolished, dissenting ministers have lived here, artists have painted the views and poets have proclaimed their beauty. There have been fatal prize fights and gun emplacements, a heliport, a ski village (hopefully soon to be renovated) and one of only two cemeteries in England with a railway running through it.
The walk will be on firm but not completely smooth paths and involve some gradients.
Max 20 people per tour/session. Walk will take about 2 hours Visit the site and hear about its history so that you can contribute to the new Masterplan consultation.
Organised by Friends of Parkwood Springs www.parkwood-springs.btck.co.uk/
