We are a registered charity, covering the Porter Brook from Hunters Bar down to Sheffield Station and the

River Sheaf from Millhouses Park to the confluence with the River Don at Castlegate.

This website is your place to hear the latest news from the trust, learn about our many active campaigns to improve the rivers, find maps of the riverside walks, read up on our extensive research and during the summer months,

book our tours.

The Google earth image below shows the approximate location of the culvert outlined in a blue dashed line.   We're hoping to get you the breakthrough video soon as daylight floods into the river below
