A brand new footpath for Bradfield

John Harker, Area Officer

This article is from Signpost 55, Autumn 2017

A new public footpath (number 221) was recently opened by Sheffield City Council (SCC) on their own land, in the National Park near Low Bradfield. It links to a permissive footpath along Dam Flask Reservoir, created years ago by Yorkshire Water. Legally it is a cul-de-sac, as it does not link to another public highway. However, SCC have said that the reservoir is a "place of public resort" - not a point to argue when we have a new path to walk.

This is the fruit of a policy where SCC have consulted with the Ramblers and PNFS when council-owned land comes up for sale or for a new tenancy. We are asked to suggest new footpaths to be created from scratch. This is one of them.

There is a new signpost on Trouble Wood Lane & ladder stiles in intermediate walls. I queried the stiles, but apparently ground levels between fields meant no other structure was feasible.
