    Tourist information
    Sheffield is a wonderful place to visit not least due to its beautiful setting close to the Peak District National Park. The City Centre just gets better and better, with the new Winter Gardens in the "must see" category.

It provides a coast to coast facility linking the major towns and cities across the North of England from Liverpool to Hull and Leeds to Chesterfield.

    Canoeing in Sheffield The Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation has many leisure and tourism attractions with the multi-millionpound redevelopment of Sheffield Basin at its head. Throughout the Don Valley the environmental and recreational infrastructure has been vastly improved in a bid to make the canal one of the most contrasting, interesting and educational waterways in Britain.

    Rivelin Valley Conservation Group The fast flowing river, regulated by its constant release from moorland peat proved ideal for powering the wheels of up to twenty mills along its course, one of the oldest being the Hind Wheel (1581). Some were still working up to the 1950's, the most famous being Mousehole Forge at Malin Bridge which produced world famous anvils and is being carefully restored by its present owner.
