Event - Riverside Heritage Walk (Sheffield)

On Saturday the 22nd September at 1pm and Sunday the 23rd September at 2pm Ron Clayton 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 the tour 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 the walk will look at some industrial archaeology, 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 Ron and beautifully illustrated by Mark Rodgers.
