Welcome

Welcome to ScHARR Green Impact’s Wellbeing Walks blog!

If you’d like to tell us about a walk please fill in our wellbeing walks form – if you don’t have a gMail account please use this google-less version of the walks form (the first form lets you upload photos if you have a Google account).

If you wish to rate a walk that you have been on – please do so in the comment area of the particular walk.

* Please remember * – staff and students should act within the government guidelines at all times, and only go on walks where it is safe to do so and with people they are permitted to meet with. Please do not travel unnecessarily to undertake one of these walks. If needs be, you can keep a bucket list of walks to go on when government restrictions ease.

And, if you want to be rewarded for your walks, then join Step Up Sheffield today by downloading their app and you will be rewarded with BetterPoints to redeem on some great local offers such as coffee, cakes and sandwiches in campus cafes, high street vouchers, charity donations and there are also lots of prizes to be won.

Anything else you feel is useful to add?

This is part of a 12 mile walk along the River Sheaf and Porter Brook, and therefore is linear (there and back) rather than circular. This section takes in the River Sheaf. Walk to the end of Millhouses Park (which has a cafe, toilets, play park, and a boating lake with pedalos) then turn around and walk back on the same route you have taken to get there.
