We walked from Victoria Quays to Meadowhall. It is a really lovely part of Sheffield, with interesting history. The path is really comfortable, the scenery is beautiful.

It just a lovely walk and it's started to get revamped after not being to bad. Nice little break watching the boats and that. Cannot say any thing more but away from traffic and can enjoy the quite area in a city.
