  • Commanding far views over the urban hills of NW Sheffield glistening in rain showers and sunlight. Summit is adjacent to the grassed over rubbish tip with its pipes allowing gas to escape from the buried decaying rubbish. Tucked out of sight below is the former Sheffield artificial ski slope which was the longest in Europe until a series of fires -one accidental the others not have closed it down.
