NETHER SPRING is located in Gleadless Valley three miles South East of Sheffield City Centre.
Originally Nether Spring was a large assortment of garden allotments, however the allotments were neglected for many years and fell into disuse.
In 2004 Sheffield Parks Dept, in conjunction with volunteers from the local community, decided to convert the disused allotment site into a safe play area for children. After having consultations with local tenants it was agreed to join the allotment site to nearby Herdings Wood, thus creating not just a childrens' play area but also a woodland park.
New picnic facilities and seating were placed at different locations around the park, a new footpath was laid to allow people to traverse through the park from Spring Close Dell to Little Wood Lane, a miniture football field was created, this pleasant childrens' facility was given the title; "The Dell at Nether Spring".
Unfortunately, due to lack of funding and maintenance the facility has now fallen into disuse. Children no longer play here and the footpath is a disgrace, it is impossible to walk along it due to potholes caused by severe weather conditions over recent years.
Nether Spring is certainly in urgent need of some tender loving care by conservationists.
