Two more Sheffield Events

Only just received!

Kelham Island Museum Weekend Fun Down by the River and guided walks.  22nd – 23rd September

Cutler Company Talk Wednesday 19th September

On Saturday the 22nd September at 1pm and Sunday the 23rd September at 2pm I will be carrying out a ninety minute riverside walk down stream from Kelham Island Industrial Museum as part of their Down By The Riverside Festival.

The walk is included in the admission price and we will set off from the Bessemer Converter outside the Museum and return to the Museum for the rest of the entertainment on offer. On the way we will look at some industrial archaelogy, the Great Inundation Of 1864, the infamous Charles Frederick Peace, a pub or two, bits of medieval Sheffield, a privy or two, and explore the ‘ wattre of Doun, the Sheaf and Poandes’. On sale will be the only book specifically written about a Sheffield river, the River Loxley, written by myself and beautifully illustrated by Mark Rodgers.
