Sheffield & South Yorkshire Navigation

'The Sheffield & Tinsley Canal is fine example of an industrial canal that has found a new lease of life. Victoria Quays, in Sheffield has been regenerated and is now a bustling waterfront destination with restaurants, bars, a hotel and health club ... In 1895 the Sheffield Canal was amalgamated with the River Don Navigation and the Stainforth & Keadby canal to form the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation. The following year the facilities at Sheffield were modernised and a new warehouse built straddling the basin.'

Type of Walk

'In common with other waterways based on natural rivers, there is no consistent towpath along the length of the Sheffield & South Yorkshire Navigation. However, you can walk between Sheffield Basin and Rotherham Lock, between Mexborough, Conisbrough, Sprotbrough and Doncaster ...  Improvements to the towpath have created a canalside walking route from the city centre out to Meadowhall shopping centre. The Sheffield & Tinsley Canal found big-screen fame in 1997, appearing in the opening scenes of the comedy film The Full Monty.'
