The Sheffield Flood Trail

Sheffield Flood Trail


The Flood Trail is a collaborative project to connect the cemeteries in Sheffield where victims of the flood are interred. The Great Sheffield Flood Trail is an audio, walking trail that will take you from the origin of the flood at Dale Dyke Reservoir, down the Loxley and Don valleys to 7 cemeteries where you will hear some of the stories of those affected both directly and indirectly by the flood.

This trail can be followed in a linear way from Dale Dyke Reservoir through to Loxley, Wadsley, Wardsend, Burngreave, Attercliffe and finishing in Sheffield General Cemetery. Or you can visit each site on separate occasions. Directions to the cemeteries and points of interest are given.

View the Trail on a computer or download it to your mobile phone to use while you are visiting the sites.

Full details are at The Great Sheffield Flood Trail page on the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust website.
