On Saturday 27th April Sheffield Heritage Community Forum came to Attercliffe in Sheffield to hold their meeting. The day started off with a tour of Attercliffe with Robin Fielder, a WEA tutor. We looked at the site of Benjamin Huntsman’s works before walking up to Hilltop Chapel, a place lots of people had never really noticed from the road but had heard lots about.
We then returned to the Sheffield learning Centre for the main part of the meeting. Helen Harman, the new curator at Weston Park Museum spoke about her new job, Janet Ridler from the Cathedral talked about the exciting developments there and Hannah Baxter talked about the project called Trading Histories that is capturing peoples memories of the Sheffield Markets.
We also heard from Clive Waddington of Sheffield Castle and Liz Godfry about Heritage Open Days.
It was a really interesting day and a great chance for networking.
