South Yorkshire Way - Boundary Route

Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, S Yorkshire, W Yorkshire

274 km / 170 miles
Two new long distance trails have been created in South Yorkshire making up the South Yorkshire Way. One covers 171 miles around the boundary and the other 98 miles through the centre, with fine countryside, towns and history. The two routes meet near Thorne North Railway Station at the east side, and near Dore & Totley Railway Station at the west side. There are (2015) plans for an e-book guide for Kindle and iPad which will contain a more detailed route guide and to waymark the route..

The Boundary Route is 170 miles of paths, tracks and minor roads around the edge of the county, taking in parts of the Peak District in the west and the Humberhead Levels in the east and passing through very varied countryside and fascinating villages. No route description is available for the route but a GPX file is available from the website below and also for LDWA members from the file link below.
