Join us as we explore the hidden rivers of central Sheffield & visit the World famous Megatron culvert!

About this event

The Sheaf & Porter Rivers Trust invites you to explore the hidden rivers of central Sheffield and learn about the history, biodiversity and future of these mysterious and sometimes unintentionally beautiful places.

Tickets are £20 each including Eventbrite fees.

These exciting tours were a sell-out (some tours sold out in seconds!) success pre-covid and are sure to be just as popular this time so please book quickly to avoid disappointment.

Tours are led by experienced professional guides from local adventure training company, Howl Bushcraft, and will last approximately 1.5 hours.

You will be walking in the river and water levels can be as high as 30cm in some sections so you should wear full-size wellington boots or waders (hiking boots are acceptable but bear in mind you will have wet feet for the duration) and may wish to bring a walking pole or stick to help with balance. Safety helmets and lamps will be provided. Please bring spare clothes (especially socks) for after the trip as you may get wet.

In view of the environment and safety considerations there is a minimum age limit of 14 (children under 16 need to be accompanied by a responsible, ticket holding, parent or guardian) and participants need to be confident walking on uneven, slippery surfaces with flowing water, and happy to crawl or stoop in certain sections.

All tours will start and finish at Triple Point Brewery where there is on street parking (if none is available Matilda St carpark is just around the corner). Subject to conditions on the day tours will aim to go as far as the “Megatron” culvert.

Tours may be called off in the event of high-water conditions or forecast of heavy rain. A full refund will be offered in this case or in the case that changes in government rules require the cancelling of the event. Otherwise refunds are not available. You may transfer your ticket to somebody else.

Important: Please feel free to have a drink and a bite to eat after your tour but please do not drink alcohol or take other drugs prior to your tour. If your guide feels that you are under the influence, have not met any of the conditions mentioned above or are wearing unsuitable footwear (any footwear that is open or does not provide suitable protection or grip will be deemed unsuitable) then you will not be permitted to take part in the tour and will not receive a refund or other compensation.

Ticket holders must be present at least 10 minutes prior to their tour for their safety briefing and helmet provision (failure to do so may result in not being permitted on the tour without refund or compensation).

No smoking or animals are permitted.

The majority of the proceeds of your ticket go to helping the Sheaf & Porter Rivers Trust in their attempts to renaturalise and champion the inner city rivers for the people and wildlife of Sheffield.

Covid: If on the date of your tour you have covid symptoms or are self-isolating please do not come but contact us before the start time of your tour!
