Welcome to Bradfield

Le Tour de France

Stocksbridge, Le Tour à pied

This walk takes you on a route which is approximately parallel to the route to be taken by the Tour de France (Le Tour) as it skirts Stocksbridge on Sunday 6th July 2014. We pick up the route at Langsett before following the line of a disused railway. We then go through the village of Midhopestones, ascend to Barnside and Broomhead Moors and then skirt the Canyards before leaving the route of Le Tour at High Bradfield.


Bradfield Walkers are Welcome supports Britain on Foot

BWAW has stepped forward to support a new national campaign designed to get more people active in the outdoors, leading to a happier, healthier nation.  Britain on Foot is launched 4th May 2013 and is being led by outdoor trade body the Outdoor Industries Association (OIA), backed by a powerful combination of consumer organisations, outdoor companies, influential individuals and public bodies, including Visit England and Change4Life.  The Government is also getting behind the campaign, and ministers from the Department of Health and Department of Culture Media & Sport (incorporating responsibility for tourism) have voiced their support.

Wheely Easy Walks

Bradfield Walkers are Welcome group were awarded a grant in August 2011 from the Sheffield City Council 50+ Small Sparks for Older People fund to investigate routes in the Bradfield area suitable for mobility-impaired walkers, especially users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

As a result of feedback from users and visits to the area to assess routes, a leaflet has been produced to allow those wishing to enjoy Bradfield’s countryside to judge the suitability of routes for themselves taking into account their particular circumstances and local conditions. We would appreciate any comments from users about other accessible routes or problems encountered.
