The Sheffield Round Walk is a 15-mile circular walk taking in several of Sheffield's Green Spaces that lie predominantly on the west and south of the City. There is a booklet to buy from Sheffield City Council that describes the route in detail. The walk is well signed, but only in an anti-clockwise direction. The clockwise signs have been used to replace worn out ones in the other direction. It does not appear as a long-distance trail on OS maps so the following description and attached gpx file should help find the correct paths. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).
