From the Archives: Beauchief Abbey



Beauchief Abbey is situated five miles south west of Sheffield city centre and easy to reach by bus, not being far from Abbeydale Road where buses pass every few minutes. The abbey is surrounded by well tended parkland and is easy walking. I didn't go inside, it seemed to be closed. My walk that day started at Fox House and I planned to finish at Millhouses Park, a couple of miles beyond the abbey, but ended up on the wrong side of the river [and railway tracks] walking through woodland.
