Five Weirs Walk

The Five Weirs Canal Walk is a surfaced path and cycleway starting from Lady's Bridge, at Grey to Green in the Castlegate district of the city centre.

It stretches for 7.5 km along the River Don to the Meadowhall shopping centre, passing the five historic weirs from which it takes its name.

It follows the riverbank almost all the way, with only occasional diversions, and connects with the Sheffield-Tinsley canal towpath for your return trip back to the city centre (also known as The Blue Loop).   Please note, as at 18th May 2022, the section between Attercliffe Road and East Coast Road is currently closed.
