Friends of Whirlow Brook Park

Caring for a special place

Whirlow Brook Park is a district park in the south-west of Sheffield. Those who visit it often comment on its special air of tranquillity and scenic setting. The Park is in need of some tender loving care and a Friends group has now been set up. The group became a Registered Charity in July 2023.

The Park is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is accessible by car from the crescent on the A625 in Sheffield where Ecclesall Road South becomes Hathersage Road. There are two car parks and a couple of clicks on the + sign on the map below should mark them with a P.

A couple of clicks should also reveal the bus stops next to the Park. From Sheffield, these are served by routes 65, 81, 271 and 272. From Dore use the 82, from Hathersage and the Hope Valley use the 271/272 and from Tideswell or Buxton use the 65. See SYPTE timetables for details of the routes and timetables of these services but beware of the complexities of the 81/82 routes.

To reach the Park by train, use Dore and Totley station and enjoy a walk of about a mile and a half through Ecclesall Woods.
