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.

To those who weren't there we had a really enjoyable time celebrating Mike's 80th birthday.

Thanks Mike from all of us for your excellent company and for the many walks you lead. Keep them coming.

A Midnight Walk

GeneralPosted by Susan Thu, May 09, 2019 16:09:22
It is nearly five years since I last led a night-time walk to see sunrise on the longest day. I would like to repeat the walk this year. I have put the details in the walks programme. I have asked people to reserve places. I need to know exactly who is coming, I would hate to leave anyone behind so late at night. I may be able to arrange lifts for people without cars, the earliest bus to Sheffield is at 0730. We will probably finish the walk at about 0600. I will also try to book an early breakfast for those who would like a reviver before going homewards.
