Oh no not more Sheffield stuff i hear you cry oh well heres some anyway some sites i visited over the last 6 months or so i know they are all familiar but its a while since i stuck anything up. All the sites were visited on foot from a central point of Sheffield and Meadowhall train stations plus a bit of help from google earth all solo visits.

First off Wharncliffe works i stumbled across this when looking for Barnsleys so had a quick wander around.
