Walking South Yorkshire is a collection of 30 circular walks, between 2 and 8 miles (3 and 13 kilometres) in length, that explore the ancient woodland and rural visitor attractions around Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley.

'This is a great book for some nice family suitable walks round south yorkshire. Directions are clear and the routes well thought out. Some of the areas I'd not have chosen to walk in, being local, but that would be me missing out on a lovely little route right on the door step.'
