How to find the Woods

Woodlands Entrance

By Car. Roadside parking near the entrances is usual in most places. There are lay-bys along Abbey Lane bordering Wood 3, and one of these has an information board with a map of the Woods. There is a car park off Limb Lane ("the Picnic Area"), and people also park in a parking area set in the Whirlow Playing Field.

By Bus. The 97, 98 and 218 buses to Totley go along Abbeydale Road. Get off at the stop just past Beauchief Gardens. The 4 bus goes along Dobcroft Road, and you can get off either where Dobcroft Road crosses Whirlowdale Road and walk about 200m up Whirlowdale Road to entrances to Woods 1 and 2, or the next stop up Dobcroft Road where a jennel leads into Wood 1.

The 81, 65 and 271 buses go along Ecclesall Road. Get off at Parkhead and walk a little way down Abbey Lane, where there is a steep but good track leading into the northern point of the woods.
