Planning a walking trip? Come and discover the Walkers are Welcome towns and villages across Britain. All have joined this innovative new community-led scheme, to demonstrate their commitment to making your visit an enjoyable one.
Bradfield Walkers are Welcome
Bradfield village’s excellent location on the northwest fringes of the Peak District, with close proximity to long-distance trails and a superb variety of shorter walks around local villages, and spectacular reservoirs means that it has something special to offer walkers, whether visitors or local residents. As a member of the Walkers are Welcome network, Bradfield is aiming to attract visitors to the area to find out for themselves the huge variety of scenery and local amenities on offer.

Sheffield’s own “Lakeland” is in Sheffield’s north west countryside, the area around the city’s reservoirs and hills. It stretches from Redmires Reservoir, in the south, to Langsett Reservoir, in the north and covers 145km2.
The area is crisscrossed with old routes once used by packhorses and carriers. These routes represent an important part of the heritage of the area – they were once vital to the local economy and are equally important today as a leisure resource, but few people using the old highways are aware of the history beneath their feet. As part of the Sheffield Lakeland and Landscape Partnership we have created a number of walks, horse rides and mountain biking routes to help you explore this area that is rich in history.

The Countryside Code applies to all parts of the countryside. Most of it is just good commonsense, as it is designed to help us all to respect, protect and enjoy our countryside.
