JCI Sheffield are taking on the Five Weirs Walk. The walk will take you on an enjoyable route through the steel city, taking in some of the best sights the city has to offer. There are Victorian buildings and scenes of the city’s industrial heyday: old schools, mills, factories, some contemporary sculptures and of course the five weirs. You can’t find two parts of Sheffield further from each other. From the wild natural habitat where animals live to an industrial landscape that has shaped Sheffield into the city it was and now is.

The walk is an 8km path from Sheffield City Centre to Meadowhall along the banks of the River Don. It connects to the Sheffield and Tinsley canal towpath, the Upper Don Walk, the riverside path to Rotherham and the Trans Pennine Trail. In the 1980’s JCI Sheffield (then known as Sheffield Junior Chamber of Commerce, SJCC) set up a major enviromental initiative that has left a permanent legacy for the city was the River Don action commitee which led to the development of the Five Weirs Walk.

Meet outside Marks and Spencers car park (downstairs) at Meadowhall at 1pm.
