Three Brooks

The Three Brooks Environmental Scheme is located to the east of Sheffield city centre covering a large area including the Manor, Manor Park, Darnall, Arbourthorne and Norfolk Park.

Central to the scheme are three important watercourses:

  • Car Brook
  • Kirkbridge Dyke
  • Jervis Lumb

The scheme aims to improve protection from flooding to nearby homes and businesses. It will also provide sustainable drainage systems and other environmental features for new housing developments and for improving water quality.
