    Tuesday 15 May 2018 6.30pm to approx 8.30pm Sheffield‟s Victorian City Centre- A VS walk for Environment Weeks. Meet at the front of the Town Hall, Pinstone Street. Too many people say there is nothing left worth looking at. We disagree, and this walk will demonstrate the wealth of Victorian (and some older) buildings we still have. Please note there are short stretches of the walk on cobbles and/or steep slopes. Leader Valerie Bayliss. Enquiries to v.bayliss@btinternet.com or 0114 2686729.

    Wednesday 23 May 2018 6.30pm to approx 8.30pm – Castlegate – a VS walk for Environment Weeks. Castlegate has been run down and neglected but is perhaps on the brink of resuscitation.
