Jeff's Short Walks

Introduced by Barry and Margaret Williamson
February 2016

Jeff's short walks range from one to six miles and are located in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and near Nottingham. They are all suitable for wheelchairs, prams, teaching young children to cycle or for people just wanting a good level walk in pleasant surroundings, away from traffic.

88 walks are described, each with maps, photographs and information on many other things such as nearby car parks, toilets and cafes.  

Our old friend and personal hero, Jeff has been quadriplegic for over 25 years, unable to use his hands and legs following a cycling accident in 1989. With the support of his sister, Audrey, he has used his motorised wheelchair to explore and enjoy these outings over many years. More recently, Jeff has added some videos of walks to his website.

Jeff Writes: 

I have always lived in the Sheffield area and was quite active before my accident. I had a love of walking and, over these years in my wheelchair, have tried to go on walks suitable for me and my sister, Audrey. 

So we decided to catalogue the walks we found that were generally flat and wheelchair accessible and in recent years we have “found” the worldwide web. 

The short walks cover South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and some near the Nottingham Area and are from 1 to 6 Miles. The walks are near: Barnsley, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Doncaster, Mansfield, Matlock, Nottingham, Rotherham, Sheffield, Wakefield and Worksop

We found them to have a suitable surface for motorised wheelchairs; ordinary wheelchairs and pushchairs will need a pusher. 

Each walk should generally have a café or a pub stop. 

We hope our website is useful and if you have other walks we could add to the site we would love to hear from you, so that periodically we can update and add more content to it.
