Rivelin Valley, Mayfield Valley and Sheffield

The Rivelin Valley lies approximately five miles west of Sheffield City Centre. The valley is three and a half miles long and follows the course of the River Rivelin, a fast flowing river that drains the moorland peat.
Although most of the mills and wheels have now disappeared, the ponds that were created to feed them are still present throughout the valley. Some have been restored by Yorkshire Wildlife and the Ponds Conservation Trust. Another ancient and historic feature, is Matty Well, which lies just opposite Blackberry Cottage and Rowan Cottage on Tofts Lane. Get more information about Rivelin Valley.

The Mayfield valley where Workhouse Cottage is situated forms a segment of Sheffield's Golden Frame, five miles to the west of the city centre with the river Porter running through it. Find out more
