A journey to hidden places in Firth Park and Wincobank

Photo by Gemma Thorpe.

Wander through ancient bluebell woods, find the lost gateway, discover an Iron Age hill fort with superb views over the Don Valley and search for 18 fascinating pieces of creative art, old and new, hidden around Firth Park and Wincobank.

The route known as A Journey to Hidden Places is the result of a project that took place in the suburb between 2008 and 2011 – a collaboration between artists and local people, from a rich variety of cultural backgrounds, that created a trail of permanent public artworks in the area. It's been developed and written by Rob Haslam, author of Vertebrate Publishing's Walking South Yorkshire.
