Hadfields Weir
Hadfields Weir
The last (or first) of the weirs on the Five Weirs Walk. There has been a weir here since about 1600. It first powered a cutler wheel, to be followed by a succession of forges, corn mills and rolling mills. To the left is a recently constructed fish and eel pass which was opened in May 2013.
Five Weirs Walk

The Five Weirs Walk is a 7.5km footpath and cycleway which follows the River Don from Lady's Bridge in Sheffield city centre to Meadowhall Retail & Leisure Centre on the city's eastern boundary. This stretch of river incorporates five weirs which were built as part of Sheffield's industrial evolution, and which give the walk its name.
