Friends of the Blue Loop

The Friends of the Blue Loop is an entirely volunteer led organisation that aims to maintain and improve the area known as the ‘Blue Loop’. This is an 8 mile stretch of waterway including the River Don from Sheffield City Centre to Meadowhall and the Tinsley Canal.


If you would like to join us or for more info get in touch below or follow us on Social Media.

Our activities include footpath maintenance, cutting and pruning vegetation, treating invasive species as well as removing litter and debris from the footpaths and river channel.  We meet every Wednesday and one Saturday per month on the Canal or River. All PPE, tools, equipment are provided on the day and training if necessary, in the use of tools and conservation management techniques.
