Aimless in South Yorkshire

Heading out and back from Sheffield in a rough and very meandering north-easterly direction, a sunny Summer’s day of carefree velo exploring unveiled the usual eclectic mix of abandoned oddities, forgotten paths and fascinating edgelands amidst what is still a very industrial part of the country. The Trans-Pennine trail along with paths along the rivers Don, Rother and Sheffield canal facilitate navigation and progress beneath the radar of everyday life. Numerous unofficial paths and tracks connect further points on a personal map I daresay most would overlook with disdain. These regular pilgrimages still throw up much of interest, despite the relentless march of the developer.
