Wyming Brook

In our quest to find new places on our doorstep, hubby and I found this delightful woodland walk in Sheffield. Wyming Brook is somewhere that I had never even heard of until I happened upon the Sheffield Wildlife Trust website. Its a real gem of a place.


There is a good car park, and lots of grassy area's not far from the car park, by the side of the babbling brook that will make great picnic and paddling spots in summer.

The walk has some fab rocky formations along the way.
On the way down, we walked on the wide track.



As you get towards the bottom of the trail, under the canopy of tree's, everything sports a woolly jumper effect coat of moss.

The combination of a golden tree, lit by sunlight against a brilliant blue sky backdrop is a winning one.

We met the river Rivelin - one of 5 rivers that flow through Sheffield (which is why we had heavy flooding in 2007).



The Rivelin and the Wyming Brook flow into the Rivelin Dam.

To walk back to the car park, we took the path along by the brook.


We had just missed a guided Fungal Foray walk, I'm going to check the website and see if we can find another guided walk soon. Its a lovely woodland walk.

This is one of my favourite running routes!! I'm so lucky that I can run here from my house - although it is a bit scary on your own now the light is dimming!

I've only recently found your blog and I just LOVE it! I live in Sheffield and I'm sure I must have seen you sometime because we seem to love all the same places and are a very similar age!!!

Looks a great place! A nice bit of rock always gives character to an area!

Wish I could join you on thse walks in real life!

If you go on a fungus foray, take a flat basket, not plastic bags then the fungi don't break, sweat or turn nasty!

Beautiful photos - it is always so good when you find something new in your local area you never knew existed! I was like that when I discovered Waverley Abbey near me... And I love the autumnal colours too and hearing about Sheffield. What with the girl talking about Hull on her blog Just Me and you...well you learn all about this country that way!:) xxx
