South Yorkshire Way - Central Route

156 km / 97 miles

S Yorkshire
Two new long distance trails have been created in South Yorkshire making up the South Yorkshire Way. One covers 171 miles around the boundary and the other 98 miles through the centre, with fine countryside, towns and history. The two routes meet near Thorne North Railway Station at the east side, and near Dore & Totley Railway Station at the west side.

The Central Route meanders through the heart of the county, passing through the centres of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield, taking in old country houses, castles, follies, country parks, canals and nature reserves along the way. No route description for the route but a GPX file is available from the website at http://www.southyorkshireway.co.uk/index.html and from the LDWA website.
