South Yorkshire Heritage Open Days

Welcome to the moblog (mobile blog) for the Sheffield Heritage Open Days.

Sheffield Heritage Open Days is a celebration of Sheffield's architecture and culture. You can get free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Organised by volunteers for local people, Sheffield Heritage Open Days is a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy these sometimes hidden, often curious and always interesting places you can find in Sheffield.

Each year I visit as many Sheffield HODS locations as possible, and send in words and pictures along the way. Hope you enjoy the result!

A great display of historical info in the pub, including the pubs insurance
claim from the Great Flood of 1864.

The pub has stood here since 1832, and was named CAMRA national pub of the
year in 2008. In fact the Kelham Island Tavern is a Sheffield institution!

Globe Works

Begun in 1825 it was the first large scale steel and cutlery works in
Sheffield. It was rattened (industrial sabotage) in 1841 because wages were
being kept low using the workhouse system.
