Our valley

The Mayfield Valley is a beautiful area to the south west of Sheffield.
It forms a segment of the 'Golden Frame' and provides part of the corridor out from the city to the relief of the Peak District.
The countryside starts here!

Campaign has STOPPED HGVs in the Mayfield Valley!

There has been a marked increase in HGVs using the country lanes in the Mayfield valley since the introduction of SAT navs and a general fast car speed.

A campaign was spearheaded by the Mayfield Women's Institute (WI) who demanded a total ban on heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) apart from farm traffic on Cottage Lane, Hangram Lane, Woodcliffe and Quiet Lane and a reduced speed limit from 60mph to 30mph for all vehicles.

The Highway Cabinet Member Decision Session on the 9th October 2014 has resolved to restrict lorry access to 7.5T in the Mayfiled Valley.

The scheme has now been issued for construction and works should commence in the near future.
