Stretching for 15 miles, it follows a circular network of paths starting and finishing at the Hunters Bar roundabout, taking in Endcliffe Park, Ecclesall Woods, Beauchief Abbey and Bishops’ House along the way.

A guide to the walk – which is clearly marked out by signposts featuring a picture of an acorn – has just been issued by Vertebrate Publishing. Written by Jon Barton, the book points out places of interest and contains stunning images of Sheffield’s greenery.

And now that the Government has permitted people to enjoy unlimited exercise again, ramblers and runners are free to explore the route's full length at their leisure.

Here are nine photographs showing some of the Round Walk’s best sights.
