Wheely Easy Walks

Bradfield Walkers are Welcome group were awarded a grant in August 2011 from the Sheffield City Council 50+ Small Sparks for Older People fund to investigate routes in the Bradfield area suitable for mobility-impaired walkers, especially users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

As a result of feedback from users and visits to the area to assess routes, a leaflet has been produced to allow those wishing to enjoy Bradfield’s countryside to judge the suitability of routes for themselves taking into account their particular circumstances and local conditions. We would appreciate any comments from users about other accessible routes or problems encountered.
