Best Views In and around Sheffield??

Recommended Posts

Mount Zion was demolished a long time ago and there is a TV mast there now. I have heard that story about seeing Blackpool tower from the top so many times, I wonder how it came about. It can't be true can it?

Enjoy! I have always always always wondered what the view from atop the Norton watertower would hold.......... if you look up at it from town - its prominence would offer sights to behold IMO!

Living in Rotherham I can only come up with Boston Castle like fellow poster Alchresearch.

 

The view from the castle is outstanding, the hills of Derbyshire are clearly visible in the distance and blimey how many miles is that away from Rotherham?.

 

Definitely worth a drive out to look at.

 

Follow signs for Rotherham Hospital, it's the road on which the Belvedere pub stands, a mile from the hospital.

The wasteland at the junction with Andover St/ Gray St in Burngreave gives one a great view down into the city at night. Needless to say it helps to be in a suitably liviered vehicle to get away with this.

It's really hardly likely, is it? Even without the Pennines in the way! ;)

 

Somebody who was a bit stupid probably once saw chimney near Ladybower or something and the story grew from there :D

Yes I thought about the Pennines, anyway I won’t elaborate I may make myself look sillier than ever. My father told me that when I was about ten, he heard it from his father, and I have heard it from so many other people since, it must be the original “urban myth.”

It depends which part of Sheffield you want views of. A good view of the East End can be got from the top of Wincobank Hill.

I went to norton free school and every year one class would get to visit it.It was amazing, no lifts just stairs and a lot of them at that, the view from the top was great you could see for miles.

 

You can even see the water tower from certain parts of rotherham (bawty road)
