Event description

Description

This event is a short walking tour in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield. It encompasses both aspects of the industrial heritage of the area and of the ‘Beer Capital’ status owned by the City of Sheffield. Sheffield has more breweries per head than any other city in the UK.

We will commence at the ‘Fat Cat’ and proceed to the ‘Gardeners’ via a short stop in the ‘Wellington.’ Along the way, we will take a circuitous route through aspects of the brewing and industrial history of Sheffield before completing the walk at the Gardeners Rest, close to the now derelict, Stones Brewery.

Participants who wish to sample beer en route are recommended to use public transport. If there are any remaining from the 1,500 print-run, hard copies of the Sheffield book will be available at a reduced price of £5.00.

This event will occur once, commencing at 15:00.

An audio description of a similar 2017 walk is available (Sheffield Live! Radio), as is a blog report.

Participants are advised to travel by public transport. The 'Shalesmoor' Supertram stop is mid-way between the start and finish.

If you book a place and then find that you are unable to attend, please use Eventbrite to cancel your place - thanks.

This event is part of Heritage Open Days 2019.
