Bank Holiday walking festival to be held at Sheffield pub

It is something most people in Sheffield will have as part of their plans for the Bank Holiday weekend – a visit to the pub.

But for a group of around 100 people that trip to the boozer will be anything but relaxing as they take part in a three-day walking festival.

Walk leader Steve Murfitt will take the group on a walk each day of the weekend – taking in a total of more than 16 miles.

The treks will all leave from the Ringinglow Road, and the first, on Saturday from 9am, will take a tour of both sides of the Burbage Valley, visit an Iron Age fort and climb Higgar Tor.

And there will be no rest on Bank Holiday Monday with a late afternoon trek around the Mayfield Valley, leaving the pub at 5pm.
