Just read a thread on google news ,local news section, about the track that runs from Neepsend lane through to Wardsend Cemetary, there area a  group of people cleaning it up getting rid of rubbish etc, but nothing waas said about the so called travellers that are ensconced on a BURRIAL Ground  further up this road called WARDSEND CEMETARY, this is the last resting place for a lot of Sheffielders killed in the great flood.These people have made nothing but a toilet of this lovely walk along the river Don  i URGE all people who are interested in cleaning this road up to go and see what a complerte s------- these people have made of it, its about time Sheffield Council dragged them off this beautiful walk and put it back to what it was, a nice peaceful plce to be, it is also quite intimidating to walk through it, if you do walk there be careful.

Are you talking about the well established community living on Club Mill Road? They aren't "travellers", perhaps hippies would be a better term. I haven't had much to do with them but they were very friendly and helpful when I was working down there.

I've been through the camp a couple of times lately and the people are nice and friendly. They didn't seem to be encroaching on the graveyard. I think your comments are rather hysterical.

The long stretch that they're occupying is rather off-putting at first sight (and very much an eye-sore), but the people were friendly enough / "neutral" when I walked through one Sunday morning a couple of months ago.

I understand there are plans to make this more of an "official" cycle/walking route so it will be interesting to see what happens then (if these plans ever come to fruition that is).

I work on Club Mill Rd and a couple of my colleagues walk past this camp every day from Hillsborough to work and neither have had any problems with the camp residents.

i believe these are the people that were "moved"  on from the new age travellers camp on the parkwood a while ago ?

Yes, they are. One of the camp's dogs, a lovely staffy, has worked out when we have our break and comes down scrounging a bit of bacon or sausage. She then goes to the sandwich cabin for more freebies.
