Event description
Guided 4 mile walk to hear the stories of this special place for the Woodcraft Folk as part of the Festival of the Outdoors

About this Event

Lockerbrook Farm was built in 1756 and is situated on an ancient packhorse route high above the Derwent Valley. In 1964 it was rescued from dereliction by the local Woodcraft Folk group in Sheffield and developed by volunteers to become an outdoor centre for young people.

Our walk leader Terry Howard grew up in Sheffield and first came to Lockerbrook in the early 1960s as part of the Woodcraft Folk. Come and join us for this short 4 mile walk to hear the stories of why Lockerbrook is such a special place for the Woodcraft Folk and to explore the stunning landscape around the centre. Terry will share his extensive knowledge of the pre-history of the site as well as some of the fascinating and little known social history of the area.
