Join the Friends of the Don Valley Way as we walk the Don Valley Way to replace any missing or damaged way markers along the route.

We will be meeting at Swinton Railway Station and progressing along the Don Valley Way at 10am and will walk to Rotherham Railway Station. It should take 3-4 hours but we can not be sure how long it will take. There are trains from Swinton to Rotherham throughout the day however so it should be easy to get back to the start.

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear on the day. Volunteers must arrive before 10am as we will be leaving then. Please bring your own lunch and drink for the day as we will not be able to provide refreshments on this day.

    Join the Friends of the Don Valley Way and Rotherham Council for a day of tree-planting at Ickles Lock. We’ll be planting small trees onto a grassland area. The trees are a mixture of native species that will act to support wildlife and provide new woodland habitat at the site. These trees will also help soak up and intercept rainwater, helping to ‘slow the flow’ of water into the navigation during high rainfall events.
