Today marks the first of four stages of the UK’s roadmap out of lockdown, and means all pupils can now return to school, college and university and that two people from different households can meet outside for recreation.
The other stages might be a little way off yet, but we can still enjoy the stunning surroundings in Sheffield and the Peak District.
With that in mind, we have put together a list of the best locations to watch the sunset in the city and beyond.
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a digital subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor.
Looking down the valley towards Stannington, the Bolehills has always been a popular spot to watch the sunset in Sheffield. There are plenty of benches to use, so why not give it a try?

2. Stanage Edge
If you are able to go a bit further afield, Stanage Edge, which is just north of Hathersage in the Peak District, is an absolutely incredible spot to watch the sunset from. Why not pack a blanket and a flask of your favourite hot drink to help you make the most of the stunning specatcle?

3. Meersbrook Park
Meersbrook Park boasts some of the best views of the Steel City, which makes it the perfect location to see the sunset. Now that the weather is about to get warmer, why not sit on the grass and take in some nature as the sun disappears from the horizon?

4. Sheaf Valley Park
Sheaf Valley Park, above the railway station in Sheffield city centre, is a wonderful location to watch the sunset. The city's ampitheatre is based there too, which means there are plenty of seats to choose from
