    Group explore with; The Kwan, Georgie, Telf, Lenston & JuJu. Great to meet you all.

    I was told that waders were essential for this place, so I had a frantic drive round 4 shops till I eventually found some. Although some sections were dry, they were definitely needed. The terrain was often slow going, but negotiable. As a previous report has mentioned, you can see that different sections have been built at different times, and it quickly changes from concrete to elegant Victorian arches. Towards the end of the explore we even found a family of ducklings too. Thanks to Mr Lenston for driving us around. We would have looked a right bunch of wallys walking round downtown Sheffield in waders. :D

    This place was awesome - Thanks for having us along! :thumbs


    The city of Sheffield derives its name from the Sheaf; the river which was culverted beneath the city's streets in the 1860's.

    Great report :) not even looked at my pictures yet! Don't think they will be as good as these as my camera is an old girl but I still love her to bits :) Was great to meet you guys, give us a shout if you are near ish to Leicester again. Thanks for driving to Sheff Wombat and thanks to Lenston for the drive around. Was a really fun day :) luckily we managed to avoid the spiders and the needles.
