A Load of Old Halls

11 Sep 2023 10:00 - 14:00

This is a gentle, historic walk, largely through green spaces, exploring the surprising wealth of history around some of the old buildings in North Sheffield and the lives of those that lived in them.

Our walk will pass through parts of Firth Park, Crabtree, Longley, Norwood and Pitsmoor.

This walk is part of Sheffield Walking Festival and Heritage Open Days 2023.


Free - but places are limited and must be booked.
