Feb 4th Wortley to Chapeltown
From Wortley Church we walked back towards Sheffield, before turning down a footpath
between two houses. Following the path down to the rugby ground and onto Finkle Steet,
we then maked our way up to the old retired greyhound kennels, and up to Rough Lane.
Passing the top of Rough Lane we continued up the track and walk through the farm yard,
continued on the track with the fishing lake on our left. Once past the lake we turned uphill towards Wharncliffe Chase. Once at the top of the hill we turned left and made our way to
the old stone yard. After the stone yard we crossed several fields and stiles and eventually made our way downhill to Penistone Rd which we cross with great care. Into Hall Wood
which is a delightful walk with several river crossings, crossed the road at Hollow Gate and walked down Charlton Brook, taking the opportunity to feed the ducks. Through the new housing estate and back in to the woods and out to Asda where the walk ends.
Feb 12th Silkstone Common to Dodworth
From the station at Silkstone Common we walked down to Silkstone. Then onto the old wagon trail, following the trail until we came to a garden centre, a good place to stop for a coffee. After coffee crossing the main road with care we followed the track past an old slag heap. Eventually we turned right into a wooded area. Exiting the woods onto a wide track we started to walk uphill with the M1 on the left and the woods on the right. As we walked uphill see Dodworth golf course on the left. At the top of the hill we continue straight forward crossing several roads, walking across the railway crossing and into Dodworth station.
