Welcome to Friends of Ecclesall Woods...

We aim to protect, preserve, and find out about Sheffield's largest ancient woodland. We co-operate with the Parks and Countryside department of the Council, and also act alone. What members have in common is a love for various aspects of the Woods - the quiet, the trees and other plants, the walking, the long history. The bluebells are famous, but there is so much more to find and enjoy.

Ecclesall Woods cover over 100 hectares (more than 300 acres), and a walk round the perimeter is about 3 miles or 5 km. There is a network of footpaths and bridle ways, streams and drains, wetland and good walking areas. The woods lie on gently sloping land with few steep climbs. Have a look at the Map.
