Entry is free, but donations are always welcome to help keep the Farm going. Visitors can see a selection of rare and unusual farm animals, including Pigs, Soay Sheep, Goats, Cows and an Exmoor Pony.

How To Get There:

By Car

From the City Centre:

Follow the A61 south along Sheaf Street, past the Railway Station and into Sheaf Square. Fork left into Suffolk Road (A61). At the Granville Square `roundabout', fork right onto Queens Road (A61). Continue along Queens Road for about 0.7 mile, to the junction with the A621 Bramall Lane. Turn left here, at traffic lights, onto B6388 Myrtle Road.

Alternatively, follow the A621 Along Arundel Gate, across the roundabout into, then along, Eyre Street (A621), and across the roundabout with the A61 St. Mary's Road/Gate into Bramall Lane (A621). Continue along Bramall Lane to its end at the A61 Queen's Road. Continue straight-on at the traffic lights onto the B6388 Myrtle Road.

In either case, once in Myrtle Road, continue across the railway (and river), then fork right at the next junction into Prospect Road (B6388). Take the second turning left into Richards Road, and the Farm will be a short distance on your left.

From the M1 East/South:

Leave the M1 at junction 33, and turn left onto the A630 towards Sheffield and Chesterfield. Continue along the A630, past the City Airport, and on to the junction where it merges with the A57 towards the City Centre. Leave the main carriageway here (as though about to turn left (south) onto the A57. At the roundabout, continue forwards onto the A57, taking the left hand lane of the second exit off the roundabout. Continue on the slip road to the next junction, and turn left onto the A6102 to head south around Sheffield. Continue across the A6135 and into Gleadless, to the junction with the B6388 Gleadless Road/White Lane. You need to turn right here, into Gleadless Road towards Heeley and the City Centre. This does not appear to be possible, so turn left, then follow the one-way system, repeatedly turning right, to double back onto the A6102 in the opposite direction. Then turn immediately left into Gleadless Road (B6388). Continue along this road for about 2 miles, and follow the main road (B6388) to `fork' right into Richards Road. Continue along Richards Road, and then Spencer Road, for about 0.3 mile, then turn right at cross-roads into Ann's Road. Turn next left into Richards Road, and the entrance to the Farm will be a short distance on your right.

From M1 North:

Leave the M1 at junction 34, then continue forwards at the first roundabout, along the road beneath the motorway to the second roundabout. Take the 4th exit onto the A631 Sheepcote Lane. Continue through the Tinsley Industrial Estate, to the end of the A631, then turn left onto the A6102. Continue along the A6102, across the A57, and on to the Farm as described above (from M1 East/South).

From Chesterfield:

Follow the A61 north, through Dronfield, and on towards Sheffield City Centre. Continue past the start of the A6102, and after about a further 3 miles, the road will cross under a railway. Take the next turning right, just after the railway bridge, into Gleadless Road. Continue back under the railway, then take the second turning left, just after a right-hand bend, into Prospect Road. Continue along Prospect Road, through its merger with the B6388 Spencer Road (from the right), then take the next turning right into Richards Road. The Farm will then be a short distance on your left.

By Public Transport

By Bus:

The no. 53 from the Bus Interchange near the main Railway Station stops on Queens Road near Halfords. From there walk uphill towards Gleadless by following Myrtle Road to cross over the railway and River Sheaf, then turn right along Prospect Road, and take the second left into Richards Road.

Alternatively, take the no. 33 from the city centre (Arundel Gate), and alight on Prospect Road.
