Hi Folks, after an entertaining tram-train ride from Cathedral to Parkage at least 12 of us drifted on Friday night along the Navigation from Parkgate to Meadowhall and those photos of the underside of the magnificent Tinsley Viaduct show the beauty of edgelands. We all walked on to the The Wentworth Hotel in the shadow of Forgemasters – which was shut! Boo! So we made our separate ways back from there. Five of us walked back to the Bay Horse Inn in Pitsmoor for a final pint – which was a total of 6 or 9 miles depending on which Garmin watch one was wearing. (According to Ride with GPS its 8.39 miles – see map below)
Drifters will catch the 18:27 tram-train to Parkgate Rotherham. We arrive just before 7pm and set off down the Sheffield Canal & Navigation towards the centre of Rotherham and on to all points east and get on a tram-train back at Meadowhall South (or Arena) and finish back at Cathedral. Many points of interest eg. Swans at the garden centre, Rotherham; Old Wharves at Rotherham central; The Chapel of Our Lady on the Bridge, River Don, Bridge St, Rotherham; Rotherham Central tram-train Station; Centenary Park; Blackburn meadows nature reserve; Magna; Jordan weir and fish pass; Sewage works and biomass power station; Tinsley viaduct.
Bring torches, dress appropriately.
nb the route marked goes as far Pitsmoor which is where some of us stopped walking. You can follow the route to near Meadowhall South – its only about 4.5 miles South
