Westfield Sports Centre

A fantastic, scenic route through contrasting terrain, rich in local history and with many lovely views. This route begins at Westfield Sports Centre and dips in to Rotherham and North East Derbyshire before returning to South Yorkshire. Three boroughs in one day! The route explores the beautifully regenerated former colliery areas, now with trees, lakes and many recreation facilities.

The route travels along the disused railway and enjoys a series of surprises as the elevated trail opens up to reveal views of the local countryside.  There are a couple of opportunities to stop off at cafes along the way. Apart from some gentle undulations the route is flat and smooth.

This route is a little gem and is guaranteed to bring the smiles out!
