Bold plans to uncover Sheffield's hidden rivers It once boasted flour mills, cutlery, steel and lead factories but is now being reinvented as a place of education, innovation and city living.
Waterways appear in short sections, and Mr Ogden said they were 'acquiring a new significance' as a restored wildlife habitat 'an important element of preparation for climate change and as an attraction for investment'. He added: "So whilst it is understood that Decathlon's first priority will be to get their store and car park back in safe operation, members of the Waterways Strategy Group, which I chair, would be keen to talk with them about options for repair which make more of this 'hidden river' for people and wildlife and also improve flood resilience. "This could include elements of re naturalising, access for fishing or coach outlet coupons ruby kayaking, and light wells for fish passage." Evidence of the council's work so far can be seen at a pocket park around the corner from Decathlon, off Sidney Street. Mr Ogden said: "People can paddle in the Porter, and trout have been frequently spotted in its waters. Students at the new Shoreham St University Technical College are among its most coach outlet handbags for xmas frequent users. "This followed the removal of a similar collapsing culvert over the Porter, which has shown how the river bank can be restored to become a pleasant park and eventually a green corridor with reduced flood risk. "It's been a remarkable transformation, and an award winning one too last year, the Porter Brook park won the 'contribution to the built environment' prize at the 2016 Living Waterways Awards, organised by the Canal and River Trust and which will eventually form part of a city centre walk which extends from the station to St Mary's. "But it has also added significant value to the site next to it." The park, and a similar one along the banks of the River Don in Nursery Street, was coach purses on clearance sale created through the council's city centre breathing spaces programme, using money contributed under planning rules by developers as well as from the Environment Agency. Further downstream, the council and Environment Agency plan to restore more of the Porter near the station and open up the River Sheaf in Castlegate. Mr Ogden big coach bags outlet said: "The proposal called 'Putting the Sheaf back into Sheffield and recently featured on BBC's One Show involves taking the roof off an underground culvert and bringing the waterway back into the open, surrounded by grass, flowers, trees and seating. "Beyond that the progressive reclamation of the River Don is also continuing and the return of the North Atlantic Salmon to spawn in the Don and its tributaries is now only a few years away thanks to the Living Don Project. "The long standing ambition of the Waterways Strategy Group of reconnecting the city centre with its waterways the canal, and Rivers Don, Porter, and Sheaf, is now achievable. "Every unexpected opportunity should be seized and made most of." Simon Ogden's top three hidden Sheffield rivers 1. The Lower Sheaf 'glorious in Millhouses Park it largely disappears from view from Granville Square'. 2.
The lower Porter Brook 'the jewel of the Porter Valley Parks becomes an invisible drain below Frog Walk but has been revealed again at Matilda Street'. 3.
