Alongside the terrible tree-felling policy of Sheffield City Council, the lottery-funded, community based Manor Park project is something to celebrate- community orchard (we are eating some of the windfalls), heritage trails, sculptures relating to its earlier farms, many and varied, expansive wild flower meadows with children’s trails/play/ activities, The Rhubarb Shed cafe, craft workshops, all on the fascinating site of Mary Queen of Scots imprisonment. All with a great view over Sheffield city and easy access for large post-war housing estates and local schools. An inspiring nature-nurturing open space. Conditions: Sunny intervals and non-existent, predicted showers! Temperature: Max 21 Min 14%
