Steel City Wanderers

2023 Walks

Steel City Wanderers is an open group which explores the culture, geography and energy of Sheffield in the form of short, guided walks. The objective of the group is to explore areas of Sheffield and subjects not usually familiar to u3a members. These include; street art, poetry, music, industrial history and the natural and built environment.

Walks are usually in the period April – September. In the winter we have non-walk events such as original literature productions and visits that may challenge cultural preconceptions. Explorations coming up include; murder, art, vegetation, fame, families and alcohol. Walks are limited to 20 -25 people so early booking is advisable! Popular walks may be repeated.

To those who have enquired about Steel City Wanderers events this summer, I feel I should write a few lines on what has happened since the “Black History of Sheffield (18th & 19th C.)” that was hosted by Mark Hutchinson in July.
The August walk was to be a revised “Sheffield’s Music Heritage”, which I usually take. However, I struggled with my sciatica for much of the month, and didn’t feel up to leading a walk.
The September walk was to have been a “follow-on” from July, looking at Black History in Sheffield (20th C. to the present day). However, Mark has been severely incapacitated through illness, and, sadly, he passed away last week.
I go on holiday in mid-October, but I’m reluctant to see 2023 go out without at least one more SCW event.
I would like to thank everyone who has attended one of our walks this year, please keep watching the notice board, and I hope to see you soon.
