  • Bingham Park is a park near Ecclesall and Ranmoor, Sheffield. It is the second (when travelling west from the city centre) of a line of parks and public open spaces along the Porter Brook, known as the Porter Valley Parks. To the East it is separated from the adjacent Endcliffe Park by Rustlings Road.[1]
  • Bingham Park is a grassy area high on a hillside with views across the valley, to Ranmoor. A footpath, leaving Rustlings Road serpents the valley bottom towards Whiteley Woods'. The footpath ends at Forge Dam Park, passing several dams of the Porter Brook, including Shepherd Wheel.[2] The park possesses tennis courts,[3] a mini golf course and a bowling green, an astroturf and has much woodland. The AstroTurf is commonly used by local footballers.
  • The first 11 acres (4.5 ha) of land which now forms Bingham Park was presented to Sheffield Corporation in 1911 by Sir John E Bingham. In 1927 the land around an early water-powered scythe works and its dam were incorporated into the park.[1]

Whiteley Woods

  • Whiteley Woods is the third (when travelling west from the city centre) of a line of parks and public open spaces along the Porter Brook.[1]
  • Whiteley Woods and an existing dam and its goit, were acquired in stages. In 1897/98 T Walter Hall presented land to Sheffield Corporation. A further grant of land was made in 1913 by Sheffield Town Trustees and in 1932 the J G Graves Charitable Trust donated land to the corporation.[1]
