While Sheffield boasts an extraordinary variety of industrial buildings connected to the metal trades, there is another side to England’s least known big city. Set amidst magnificent scenery, it has an array of handsome Victorian buildings, innovative building projects from the 1950s and 1960s, and exciting newer buildings such as the Millennium Galleries, Winter Garden, and Persistence Works.

This is the first comprehensive architectural guide to Sheffield. It describes the buildings of the city center, those of the inner suburbs, and some outstanding buildings farther out. Such major buildings as the town hall, the two cathedrals, and the Winter Garden receive more detailed treatment, as do the two Universities. Illustrated in color throughout, Sheffield displays in detail this Yorkshire city’s enticing contrasts of industrial heritage and natural beauty.
