Geography of Sheffield
Sheffield is located in the South Yorkshire region and features over 50 public
parks. The city is one of the gateways to the spectacular Peak District National
Yorkshire itself is a maritime county of England with an extensive hinterland
region. From the mouth of the Tees to Flamborough Head the coast is bold and
rocky; from Flamborough Head to Spurn Head it lies low. The interior presents
the appearance of a great central valley stretching southeast to the Humber,
and flanked on either side by heights - on the east by the Cleveland Hills and
the Wolds, and on the west by the Pennines. Yorkshire is an important agricultural,
manufacturing, and mining county, and tourism is one of its principal industries.
Natural splendour abounds throughout Yorkshire. The North York Moors National
Park and the Yorkshire Dales are extremely popular with outdoor enthusiasts.
At beautiful Ingleton you'll find White Scar Cave, the spectacular massive ice-age
cavern with underground waterfalls, streams and thousands of stalactites.
Cyclists love the Dales and all the National Park Centres offer advice on marked
cycle ways and cycle hire, as well as being a favourite for walkers. Dotted
within stunning scenery are bustling villages with shops offering arts, crafts
and some of the best outdoor clothing and equipments shops in the country. West
Yorkshire is home to some of the most picturesque walkways in the country (and
the best ale) including the Pennine Way and the Bronte Way. The South Pennine
Ring is now fully open and restored for walking or cycling along towpaths or
pleasure cruising down 'the cut'.
