Tour de Yorkshire

The Tour de Yorkshire is coming to Stocksbridge!​

Sunday 30th April will see the grand finish of the Tour de Yorkshire at Fox Valley after cyclists have raced through the challenging terrain around our area including hill climbs at Ewden Heights, Deepcar and Midhopestones, with a sprint section through Stocksbridge Town Centre.

Dransfields are working with the community to ensure that the whole area benefits from the event and the many thousands of visitors enjoy their stay.

Let's all work together to help showcase our Town to the world media!
