Services 61 and 62 depart for Bradfield from Arundel Gate in the city centre twice an hour. The routes alternate between a clockwise loop out to the Peak District and back, and an anti-clockwise route. This morning it was the number 62 going clockwise which arrived at the bus stop a few minutes after I got there; it got to Low Bradfield first and so that's where I got off and started the walk.
It's a nice walk uphill to High Bradfield taking the footpath across the fields.
After photographing the area near to the church I headed out north-eastwards and then due east over the fields and along a short stretch of road to Coldwell.
I was hoping to find a path going down to Worrall but I chose the wrong one and ended up at Oughtibridge, meaning that I had to walk along the busy Langsett Road for nearly a mile; unfortunately there's only one footbridge where I could cross over the River Don...and similarly only one bridge over the railway line.
It's quite a long and steep climb through the woods back up the other side of the valley but there are some extensive views of Sheffield from the ridge at the top.
A few minutes later I had to stop to take this photograph of a perfectly positioned and proportioned ragwort.
I only just grazed Birley as I took the route of the Sheffield Country Walk to the viewpoint at Birley Stone where I decided to abandon the walk [after seven miles] because the heat was getting to me...and I'd drunk all of my orange cordial. I turned right and walked down the road to Grenoside and caught a bus from there back to the city centre.
