  1. I enjoyed a lovely walk yesterday with some spectacular views of the city centre in the distance....also an observation relevant to the changing boundary between Sheffield and Derbyshire: https://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/11/ecclesall-road-whirlow-bridge.html
  2. I took quite a few photos yesterday...some from right down in the reservoir: https://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/11/moscar-fairholmes-yorkshire-bridge-and.html
  3. I deliberately chose a route on my walk yesterday to get as close as possible to some of these spots: http://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/06/lodge-moor-bamford-thornhill-aston-and.html
  4. It's a surprisingly long list considering how much I enjoy walking: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/things-that-annoy-me-when-im-walking.html I'm wondering if anyone has anything to add to the list?
  5. My walk yesterday, staying within the City of Sheffield but still enjoying the snow: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/abbeydale-whirlow-ringinglow-and.html
  6. I had a bit of an argument with a farmer near Damflask Reservoir yesterday because I inadvertently strayed from the footpath...which wasn't marked on the OS map - he was rude and aggressive...and a bit strange. My blog report here: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2017/11/moscar-low-bradfield-holdworth-and.html I'm wondering what other walkers' experiences have been under similar circumstances.
  7. Why do I think I deserve compensation? Well, the fact that the service wasn't provided. I don't drive, but as a driver you are required to pay road tax; if you're not satisfied with the service you receive maybe you should re-evaluate your relationship with the state.
  8. I'm a frequent user of public transport. The buses are unreliable and take forever to get to your destination; 90 minutes from Doncaster to Sheffield for example. As for the trains, well Sheffield doesn't really have a network at all; the quality of the service between Sheffield and Leeds or Manchester is the worst between any two cities of a similar size in Europe. Sheffield is also the largest city in Europe without any electric trains.
  9. I support the introduction of a basic income. I'm disabled and find it very difficult to get work; a basic income would mean that I could take whatever work I could find, no matter how poorly paid or precarious...and it would do away with the stigma of having to rely on benefits.
  10. I was stuck for 2 and a half hours on a train yesterday morning on the approach to Midland Station. It ruined my day and it looks like I'm only going to get a fiver in compensation. I'm wondering what other bad experiences people have endured. I'm convinced that public transport is particularly bad in South Yorkshire.
  11. Probably because there isn't a bus stop at The Grouse.
  12. Thanks scoobz, I think I'll wait until the spring. I quite liked it as it was though.
  13. I'm just wondering how the felling of the plantation in the Burbage Valley is going. I've not been there for a couple of months and might go take a look soon if access isn't blocked.
  14. I've posted on my blog how the changes will affect me. The main changes seem to be to the 272 and 61/62. http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/sheffield-bus-partnership.html
