On Friday 9th February, Jim Fulton, Town Trustee & Freeman of the Cutlers’ Company, completed his ambitious project to walk every road in Sheffield. His journey concluded on Love Street, where he was joined by BBC Look North for the final stretch along the city boundary. This impressive adventure stems from Jim’s love of walking, it also showcases Jim’s dedication, taking 5 years to complete, as well as improving his knowledge of all areas of the city.

Sheffield has a total of 6,388 individual streets which totals 1,200 miles. Jim travelled to various areas in Sheffield by foot or public transport, covering an impressive 6,680 miles. His extensive exploration of the city showcases the vastness and diversity of Sheffield. Thank you to Bowmer & Kirkland who granted access to their construction site on Love Street for Jim to complete his challenge.

He completed the momentous project just before his 70th birthday, where we completed a 70km walk with Family & Friends in Sheffield. Well done Jim on this amazing achievement!
