Tally Ho

Resume of the 2019 Route

Best read with a map to hand

The 2019 Tally-Ho run starts from Weston Park Cancer Hospital, Sheffield, the benefactors of Buckingham Insurance fund raising events of which the Tally-Ho is a major part.

Leaving the hospital the route heads out of Sheffield on the A57 until open country is reached with a right to Rails and Stannington to meet the B6076. Shortly a right continues the route north and after crossing the River Loxley it progresses through Worrall and Oughtibridge and then a gentle climb to Grenoside.

Turning north again through Grenoside Woods a vast area of east Yorkshire is visible to the right before crossing the A616 which is quickly followed by a right in Wortley village.

Continuing west of the M1 through Silkstone, Silkstone Common and Cawthorne the route turns left as you enter Mexborough. We last visited High Hoyland on the way to a lunch halt at Cannon Hall Country Park but today a right here is followed by a short stretch on the A636 followed by a left straight towards the Emley Moor transmitter tower.

Whilst the short route continues towards the transmitter the full route turns right in Emley village for a loop through Flockton and Middlestown before a run down the A642 back towards the Transmitter.

The whole entry now meanders, mainly on minor roads, via Shelley, Thunder Bridge and Thongsbridge to the break at the Oil Can Café in Holmfirth.

Following a hot drink and a tray bake, courtesy of Buckingham’s Insurance, at the Oil Can Café the route climbs to the high ground to pass Winscar Reservoir with a possible picnic site in the pay’n display car park.

A left near Dunford Bridge takes the route east then south toward Langsett where a right enters the Strines road to the east of the Broomhead and Bradfield moors.

The shortened route continues on this scenic road for 12 miles until the A57.

The full route follows this road until the left turn to Wigtwizzle and then to skirt Broomhead and More Hall reservoirs before heading for High and Low Bradfield. A right towards the end of Damflask reservoir toward Ughill eventually to rejoin the Strines road shortly before the A57 where the complete entry turns left towards Sheffield.

Almost where you left the road at the start of the run a right with a very steep ascent climbs towards Fulwood Hall and on to Ringinglow before joining the A625.

The route now follows main roads towards the ‘longabout’ at Owler Bar and then, once through Holmesfield, turns right to the old A61 (now degraded to B6057) in Dronfield centre.

In Unstone the route climbs to Apperknowle and on to Staveley via Middle Handley. From here it is a short run on the A619 to Barlborough and the eventual finish in Clowne Community Centre for the usual Cream Tea.
