Named discs with Chantry Bridge logoRotherham Round Walk

40 km / 25 miles

S Yorks
The 25-mile route is a complete clockwise circuit from the northwest of the town round to the southwest. It leaves the town through a wooded clough and soon enters attractive countryside round the Wentworth Estate in the north. It then goes through a short industrial section and semi urban area to the west, and more undulating rural country to the south, re-entering the town through Boston Park. There is a variety of terrain, with the majority on public footpaths, but all relatively easy walking including one or two short steepish climbs.
