In this month's 'walk' magazine for ramblers on page 77 there is an interesting article about safety.

There's an app OS Locate that will give you your grid reference. We have loaded it and it is so useful, firstly for safety but also it gives other invaluable information.

It also advised that you register for emergency SMS ( this is a free service that allows you to send a text message on emergency bandwidth when a call can't get through.

Coach Ramble Wednesday 31st July - Haworth

GeneralPosted by LizS Mon, June 17, 2019 19:17:11
The next Coach Ramble will be on Wednesday July 31st and it is time to book your place to avoid disappointment.

We are going to Haworth. The coach will depart from Pond St (Penny Black) at 8.00 am and will leave Haworth at 6.00 pm for the return to Sheffield. There will be two led walks. The B walk led by Cynthia Ashton and Barry Ashton will be 8 miles. The A walk led by Susan Rushworth and Judy Gathercole will be 11/12 miles. Details of both walks will be in the walks programme.

There should also be an opportunity to explore Haworth which is a picturesque village surrounded by dramatic moorland made famous by the Bronte sisters. Attractions include The Bronte Parsonage Museum and the Keithley Worth Valley Railway. There are also shops, cafes and pubs. It is fine to come along and walk independently or explore the village and the local area.

The Wednesday Coach Ramble is a new venture and we are keen to fill the coach so please pass this information to walking friends who may want to join us.

Places are £12 for further information or to reserve a place email or text/phone 07711353310


message from Chris Gamble

Below is a message from Chris. I have never met Anne but hopefully someone who knows her will read the blog andpass th information on to other who might want to know.



I hope this is the right email address for the committee. Last night I met the nephew of Anne Mazur, who used to walk with Sheffield Ramblers for many years. He told me she died recently after a short battle with cancer. Her funeral is this Tuesday, 18th June, 2pm at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium.

I think there will be a number of ramblers who remember Anne so, if you feel it is appropriate, perhaps one of you could put it on the blog? I'm sorry, I've never put anything on the blog, so am not yet registered, and am not able at the moment to start the process of registering (grandchildren staying with us, and sleeping in the computer room!).

Thanks for that.

Chris Gamble

A walk that may be of interest

This is not a Ramblers walk but I think it may interest some of you. It sounds like an interesting perspective on our city.


Explore the Steel City like never before

Discover how engineering has shaped the city of Sheffield on a special walking tour this June.

As part of the Institution of Civil Engineers’ Explore Engineering Weekend from June 21-23, Chartered Civil Engineer David Tattersall will lead a sightseeing journey around some of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Points of interest on the route include the cathedral, Sheffield Station and Passenger Transport Interchange, Lady’s Bridge, the Parkway Viaduct and Victoria Quays.

Former Regional Director of ICE Yorkshire and Humber, David Tattersall, said: “So often, we wander around our cities without thinking about what’s beneath our feet, or the feats of civil engineering which have enabled them to blossom.

“This event will provide an engineering insight into the history and growth of the city of Sheffield.”

Explore Engineering: A Civilised Place walk, Sheffield, will take place on Friday, June 21, and Sunday, June 23, at 10.30am, starting at Sheffield Cathedral.
