Birley Spa Visit

Date: Saturday 2nd July 2022

The building is listed Grade 2 listed but has been neglected for some years. The Friends of Birley Spa are trying to secure its future, and they will provide a guided tour.

Meet at 2.30pm at the front gate, Dyke Hall Way, Sheffield S12 4ED.Bus 120 from Arundel Gate goes past the door - get off at the Jermyn Crescent stop.

Ticket Price: Free but donations to Friends group is welcome.

Wardsend Cemetery


Time: 2pm

Wardsend is a detached churchyard, established in 1856 when the burial ground at St Phillip’s Church became overcrowded. The Friends of Wardsend Cemetery have been doing a lot of work to make the site accessible, though sadly the buildings (by Weightman, Hadfield and Goldie) have not survived. The Friends will provide a guided tour. Meet at 2 pm at the entrance at the junction of Livesey St, S6 2ET, and Club Mill Road.

Ticket Price: Free but donations to Friends group is welcome.
