Find out about the diverse botany and wildlife that call Kelham Island’s ‘goit’ home.
This man-made water channel dates back to Norman times and the start of industry in Sheffield, when it diverted water from the River Don to the Town Corn Mill. Now, this special habitat is a haven for flora and fauna, from ferns to fish – you might spot the odd amphibian too.
Join Dave Buttle, Emeritus Fellow from the University of Sheffield, for an easy-going wander along the goit and learn about its nature on the way.
