Best Views In and around Sheffield??

Recommended Posts

I took mikey's advise and went up East Bank Road a couple of weeks ago. I took a whole roll of film up there and have some high resolution shots, but my scanner is really bad so I won't bother scanning them until I have a new one. There is a low res scan of a shot below though to give you an idea of the view. Click the photo below for a larger version...

I second and third Meersbrook park. I live right next to the top entrance and spend many a happy hour or two of an evening there in the summer watching the sunset over the city of sheffield, great thing is it is so different everytime, you get really amazing colours. :)

Shirecliffe college has gone now, after it was re-named parkwood.

There are houses there now.

Yeah - and it's next to a toxic waste dump. There's still lovely views to be had...but don't stay there too long...

I could see the old college at Shirecliffe from both Chesterfield and Doncaster.

Burbage Moor crags holds a view over most of Sheffield, also Jawborn Hill is a pleasant place to park up if you can get in the layby, mind you i cycle up it 3 or 4 times a week and only once have i seen it empty.

If you can get into some of the high rise buildings in the town centre there are some good views...further afield Redmires Rd has some good views..

Northern Avenue/ Spring Lane (off City Road), Best for fifth of november.

 

Also, Wincobank Hill. And Houndkirk Road, which is in fact a bridleway

agree with the oxstones, but only if you've had 100 mushrooms.

 

or meersbrook park - although that mosque is a bit of an eyesore - like a big quality street!
