South Yorkshire
South Yorkshire is a metropolitan county in-the Humber and Yorkshire area, and is made up of 4 urban boroughs. Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and the city of Sheffield.

Situated towards the east side of-the pennines and land locked, south Yorkshire buts up against the boundaries of west and north Yorkshire. The riding of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Parts of Sheffield also lay within the peak district national park.

Three key rivers cross the area and they’re the Dearne, Rother and Don.

Like all of Yorkshire there was plenty of interest, folklore and rich history attached to what used to be regarded as-a part of Yorkshire well-known for its heavy business, specifically the steel foundrys of Sheffield and furthermore coal mining.

Pre historic remains including a Mesolithic ” residence” – a group of rocks in the structure of a hut foundation dating back-to 8000 BC, were discovered at Deepcar in north Sheffield.

There are tons of places to see within south Yorkshire and these comprise Brodsworth hall and gardens. Elscar steam railway. Howden moors. Monk Bretton priory. RSPB old moor wetland center and Wentworth castle and name but a few. Doncaster racecourse is furthermore worth a call and-a bit of a flutter on the gee gees if theres a conference

on. Sheffield – Metal City
Throughout the 19th century Sheffield grew up about and gained a reputation worldwide for making steel. 2 of-the Sheffield steel industry improvements were stainless steel and crucible. Coal mining was also another significant sector. Now – a – times both long gone.

Anybody old enough (like me) to remember the pictures ” The full-monty” and ” Brassed off ” still two of my all time favourites will realize the challenge the people of west and South Yorkshire survived during the time of the closures, along with the humour and pathos, not to mention true resolution and determination to pick them-selves up and can get on with life. Were nowt if not hardy buggers in Yorkshire.

The 21st century found several changes following the lean times when both of these important industries closed their doors for the last time.

Today Sheffield was totally redeveloped and is mentioned for its varied culture, art, entertainment,shopping facilities, nightlife. Along with the steady increase of its own market.

Of-course there are reminders of Sheffields once great industrial past, and Tourist attractions include the Abbeydale industrial hamlet. A unique 18th century industrial works boasting the only enduring, undamaged crucible furnace on earth.

If you have somewhat of a desire on theres also the Sheffield brewery business, where you can take a visit of the works and learn how cask ales are made before trying a decrease of real beer in the newly installed club.

In the event you think Sheffield too industrial for your flavor, you may always escape to-the delightful bed and breakfast quantocks places available.

And, apparently Sheffield has the highest proportion of trees to individuals of any city in Europe. Maybe its time-to change the name from steel city to green city!!

In addition… Joe Cocker, the vocalist with-the memorable voice comes from Sheffield also.

Sheffields Two Cathedrals
Saints Philip And Paul Cathedral – Chapel of England

The sight of today’s cathedral has always been connected with worship and Religious use. The first Sheffield parish church was built here in the 12th century. However this church was razed to-the ground in 1266 during the second barons war against Henry 111. Another parish church was completed in 1280 but was largely demolished and reconstructed in

1430. All through the following centurys alterations and additions were produced like the chapel of St Katherine and the Shrewsbury chapel.

The cathedral has 13 alarms in complete, for change buzzing. Thurs night is exercise night for the ringers and of course the alarms are rung every Sunday before the service begins.

Two striking and intriguing features of Saints Peter and Pauls cathedral are the lantern tower and the display of bayonets and swords in Saint Georges chapel.

Cathedral Church Of St Marie – Roman Catholic

This Cathedral Church appears in a somewhat less prominent position than saints Philip and Pauls, but a large spire alerts you to its presence.

During the catholic emancipation during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Catholics were permitted to worship more openly, and so Sheffields Catholic believers bought an old house and built a place of worship in the garden.

Doncaster or ” Donny” as its known to locals, is created on a Roman fortress constructed in the 1st century AD at a crossing point on the lake Don.

In the early twelfth century Doncaster became a possession of ” The Kingdom of Scotland” within the treaty of Durham, and the transfer is believed not to have been formally reversed.

Well Ill go tfoot of rstairs (Yorkshire talk for Im truly amazed) And there was I convinced Donny was as Yorkshire as puddings, and parkin!!!

Doncaster became a busy town in-the twelfth century and was given recognition using a town charter.

Now some of the old properties and area of the market remain. But Donny has kept speed with contemporary living boasting new structure, an international airport, and also the education city campus. The largest education expense of its kind in the United Kingdom.

Brodsworth Hall and Gardens
Situated 5 miles north west of Doncaster. Brodsworth hall is just one of-the very most complete and basically unchanged Victorian country houses in England.

The final resident of the corridor was Sylvia Grant Dalton. Her late husband had fought a loosing battle for 57 years before his death against subsidence by coal mining and also a dripping roof.

When English Heritage took over the hall in 1988 following Sylvias departure they decided to preserve the inside ” as found” rather than changing and rebuilding. This makes the corridor unique in several ways because possessions that took over 130 years to gather still remain and contain grand pieces of furniture along side the humblest of family domestic items.

The gardens were renewed, and also the hall now boasts tea areas, a kids play area, Illuminated night time garden tours, and for people only, instructive garden tours conducted by the halls head gardener. As well as other attractions like shows and classic car events.

There are also band concerts on Sunday afternoons, featuring some of Yorkshires top brass bands. In the event you love songs, you haven’t lived until you notice a correct Yorkshire steel will blow your socks off. Yorkshire is famous for the quality of its own brass musicians and I will guarantee you won’t regret spending the access fee once you hear these women and men perform. On Brodsworth halls site it suggests you take a foldable chair and a picnic along with you, for the concerts its a good holiday.

For those interested in the great. The hall is considered haunted by former inhabitants, and a ginger cat. The village church ” All Saints” which was built by Sylivias husbands family, is noted to be haunted by two elderly women dressed in period clothing, who strategy the entrance to the church. Their footsteps can be noticed, but then quit suddenly when the ladies dissapear into thin air!!
