'The River Dearne is a river in South Yorkshire, England.

The upper Dearne is followed by the Dearne Way, a footpath through the countryside from Dearne Head to Barnsley.

'The actual Boundary Walk uses private land and is only used once every seven years with the kind permission of the landowners. It must not therefore be used at any other time. The Boundary Way described ... therefore used the nearest public rights of way to the boundary - on footpaths, lanes and, by necessity in places, on roads.'
