From Source to Nowhere Near the Sea

Shire Brook is probably the most underrated of Sheffield’s waterways. Rising in Gleadless it flows east for a mere 5 miles before joining the Rother at Woodhouse Washlands, but it flows through some of the finest scenery in the city and is historically one of the most famous boundaries in the country. This linear walk follows this pretty stream as closely as possible on its short journey.
