I love running/walking through the woods here. It provides a great escape from the chaos of the city and gives you a sense of adventure! Be sure to wear boots you're prepared to get muddy!

I love wandering around these woods; I manage to find something new every time. Lots of different routes to walk and things to see.

We love these woods right on our doorstep. It's great to escape the hustle of Abbey Lane and Abbeydale Road for the peace and quiet of the woods. Admittedly some of the main paths are well trodden and can be busy especially at weekends but head off to the secondary paths and you can enjoy the solitude.

When it's wet you definately need walking boots or wellies the ground doesn't drain and dry too quickly!

Walkers, dog-walkers, horse-riders and cycle riders all welcome.

There is a cafe in the woods but the closest pulic toilets are in Millhouses Park

As well as being a beautiful, sprawling expanse of woodland right in the heart of urban Sheffield, Ecclesall Woods is also host to an ancient neolithic standing cup and ring stone. It's not widely advertised but if you're interested you can google it and find directions online posted by my husband on Sheffield forum, the local online resource for all things Sheffield.

Lovely place for a stroll on a sunny day.
Have been many times and it is great to see it in all the different seasons.
Take sensible shoes if it has been wet.
