Beauchief Circular

A walk from the house through Beauchief and home through Ecclesall Woods.

Walking from the house we went through Ecclesall Woods (block 2) down to Abbeydale Road near the Beauchief Hotel crossroads.
We walked along Abbey Lane a short way before turning into Beauchief Drive and uphill past the remains of the 13th century Beauchief Abbey, continuing up to the top of the hill.
Here we turned right into Gulley's Wood onto a footpath which we followed past Abbeydale Golf Course and into Ladies Spring Wood, and then out onto Twentywell Lane through Nether Wood.
We followed the road downhill and crossed over Abbeydale Road and followed the north a little while before turning onto Dore Road and then accessed Eccelsall Woods (block 3) via Ryecroft Glen Road.
Just a case then of following the tracks through the woods and home.
