Om boka

Now part of an almost continuous suburban built-up area on the northern fringes of the City of Sheffield, Ecclesfield, Chapeltown and High Green were for centuries three distinct communities. Although surrounded by fields and woodland, they were for much of the last two centuries not rural communities but centres of industry. Coal mining, ironstone mining, iron making, nail making, file making, engineering and chemicals production (Izal disinfectant) were all important. The communities also have a rich cultural and social heritage including hospital parades, local carols and hand-bell ringing. This selection of around 180 fascinating photographs from the thousands of photographs in the collection of the Chapeltown and High Green Archive provides a comprehensive visual history of the three settlements. The photographs and informative captions will be of interest to long-established residents and relative newcomers alike.
