The recent inspirational Sheffield Heritage Fair and the equally successful, South Yorkshire Listing Project, continue to highlight the importance of our local heritage: how we learn about our past and how it shapes our future. One integral aspect of this interest is pubs: for centuries, the home of personal interactions and a barometer of social change. Pubs are part of our heritage; places where our ancestors lived, worked and relaxed: places that have had a major effect on the development of our city.
The latest edition of the book, Sheffield’s Real Heritage Pubs will be available for the forthcoming national CAMRA Members’ Weekend, AGM and Conference (21-23 April). Compared to the previous edition, this A5, 120 pages, new expanded version includes over 70 new images, new entries and considerable text changes and additions. As Exposed magazine stated:’ A must-have for any pub aficionado or history-buff.’
In addition, we also have a new 32 page Pub Heritage Walk illustrated booklet. This provides detailed instructions for a heritage walk from the University Arms to Fagan’s. Included en route are several pubs. This has been on sale from early March: two of the retail outlets (Beer Central and the Millennium Galleries) were forced to re-stock after less than a week. Other outlets include Kelham Island Books and Records and the University Arms.
Both publications are also available by mail order. Contact email@example.com for both post details and retail enquiries.
