Step out Sheffield
Firshill Health Walk

Thursday 10.15 meet at the bus stop for Abbeyfield Primary Acadamy.

The Firshill Health Walkers meet at 10.15 on Thursday mornings at the bus stop for Firshill Community Primary School (now Abbeyfield Primary Acadamy) on the junction of Barnsley Road and Orphanage Road. Local green spaces for walks include Burngreave cemetery, Roe woods and Parkwood Springs.

The Firshill health walks are not suitable for wheel chairs or baby buggies. New walkers need to be aware that although walks are always under 60 minutes walkers always stay together as a single group. There are sometimes options for walkers to 'opt out' before returning to the start but those with limited mobility may find this walk challenging.

Because the group hasn't found a suitable community centre or café to meet at and return to after the walk they don’t always finish in Firshill. For example sometimes they walk into town, stop for a cuppa in a café and then catch a bus back. On other occasions they might catch a bus to a pre-agreed destination and do their walk there.

New walkers are very welcome. Why not come and give us a try? The walks are free (nothing to expend except energy) - just bring your bus pass in case the plan is to walk outside the local area.

Buses: 29, 47, 48, 75, 76, 83, 83a, 87, 88, 97, 98 and 265.
