Country houses,Stately homes, accommodation and more Castles than you are able to shake a stick at. Rugged coastlines or Bucket and Spade beaches. Great Shopping shops and Country Craft shops. It also has some of-the warmest people you could want to meet in the British isles, and is proud of its popularity for friendliness.

South Yorkshire
South Yorkshire is a metropolitan county in-the Humber and Yorkshire area, and is composed of 4 urban boroughs. Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and town of Sheffield.

Located to the east side of-the pennines and property locked, south Yorkshire buts up against the boundaries of west and north Yorkshire. The riding of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Parts of Sheffield also lie within the peak district national park.

Three key rivers cross the region and they're the Don, Rother and Dearne.

Like all of Yorkshire there's tons of intrigue, folklore and rich history attached to what was previously regarded as being a part of Yorkshire celebrated for its large business, in particular the steel foundrys of Sheffield and also coal mining.

Pre historic remains including a Mesolithic " home" - a group of stones in the shape of a hut foundation dating back-to 8000 BC, were discovered at Deepcar in north Sheffield.

You'll find lots of places to visit within south Yorkshire and these include Brodsworth hall and gardens. Elscar steam railway. Howden moors. Monk Bretton priory. RSPB old moor wetland centre and Wentworth castle and gardens.to name but a few. Doncaster racecourse is also worth a call and a bit of a flutter on the gee gees if theres a meeting

on. Sheffield - Metal City
Through the 19th century Sheffield grew up about and obtained a reputation worldwide for producing steel. Two of the Sheffield metal industry innovations were stainless steel and crucible. Coal mining was also another significant business. Now - a - times both long gone.

Anyone old enough (like me) to recall the pictures " The full Monty" and " Brassed off " nonetheless two of my all-time favourites will understand the battle the people of west and South Yorkshire survived throughout the time of the closures, as well as the humour and pathos, not to mention true fortitude and determination to pick themselves up and get on with life. Were nowt if not hardy buggers in Yorkshire.

The 21st century found many changes following the lean times when these two leading sectors shut their doors for the last time.

Today Sheffield has been totally redeveloped and is mentioned for its diverse culture, art, entertainment,shopping facilities, nightlife. And the steady growth of its own economy.

Naturally there are reminders of Sheffields once great industrial past, and Tourist attractions include the Abbeydale industrial hamlet. A unique 18th century industrial works boasting the only enduring, intact crucible furnace in the whole world.

When you have a bit of a thirst on theres also the Sheffield brewery company, where you can take a tour of the works and understand how cask ales are created before trying a decrease of real ale in the recently installed bar.

Just in case you think Sheffield too professional for your flavor, you could always escape to the exquisite bed and breakfast quantock hills places available.

And, seemingly Sheffield has the highest percentage of trees to people of any city-in Europe. Maybe its time-to change the name from steel city to green city!!

In addition... Joe Cocker, the singer with the voice comes from Sheffield also.


Sheffields Two Cathedrals
Saints Philip And Paul Cathedral - Church of England

The picture of today's cathedral has always been associated with worship and Religious use. The first Sheffield parish church was built within the 12th century. However this church was razed to the earth in 1266 during the 2nd barons war against Henry 111. Another parish chapel was accomplished in 1280 but was largely destroyed and rebuilt in

1430. During the following centurys additions and modifications were produced like the Shrewsbury chapel and the chapel of St Katherine.

The cathedral has 13 bells in total, for change ringing. Thursday night is training night for those ringers and of course the bells are rung every Sunday before the service begins.

Two striking and interesting features of Saints Peter and Pauls cathedral are the lantern tower and the screen of bayonets and swords in St Georges chapel.

Cathedral Church Of St Marie - Roman Catholic

This Cathedral Church stands in a rather less prominent place than saints Philip and Pauls, however a sizable spire alerts you to its presence.

During the catholic emancipation during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Catholics were allowed to worship more openly, and so Sheffields Catholic believers bought an old house and assembled a place of worship in the garden.

Doncaster
Doncaster or " Donny" as its known to locals, is created on a Roman fortress constructed in the 1st century AD at a bridging point on the lake Don.

In-the early 12th century Doncaster became a possession of " The Kingdom of Scotland" within the treaty of Durham, and the transfer is thought never to have been officially corrected.

Well Ill go tfoot of rstairs (Yorkshire speak for Im really surprised) And there was I convinced Donny was as Yorkshire as puddings, and parkin!!!

Doncaster became a busy town in the 12th century and was given national recognition with a town charter.

Today a few of the old structures and the main market stay. But Donny has kept speed with an international airport, contemporary living boasting new structures, and also the education city university. The biggest instruction expense of its type in-the UK.


Brodsworth Hall and Gardens
Situated 5 miles north-west of Doncaster. Brodsworth hall is just one of the very complete and essentially unchanged Victorian country houses in Britain.

The final resident of the corridor was Sylvia Grant Dalton. Her late husband had fought a losing battle for 5-7 years prior to his death against subsidence by coal mining and also a dripping roof.

When English Heritage took over-the hall in 1988 following Sylvias death they determined to conserve the interior " as found" rather than changing and repairing. This makes the hall unique in several ways because possessions that took over 130 years to gather still remain and include fantastic pieces of furniture alongside the humblest of household domestic items.

The Victorian gardens were renewed, as well as the hall now boasts tea areas, a kids play area, Illuminated night time garden tours, and for members only, enlightening garden tours conducted by the halls head gardener. As well as other attractions such as classic car activities and shows.

Additionally, there are band concerts on Saturday afternoons, featuring some of Yorkshires top brass bands. In the event that you love songs, you have not lived until you notice a proper Yorkshire steel band.it will blow your socks off. Yorkshire is celebrated for the caliber of its brass musicians and I can assure you won't regret spending the access fee if you notice these guys and women perform. On Brodsworth halls website it advises you take a picnic and a foldable chair along with you, for the concerts its a good b&b taunton.

For those interested in the supernatural. The hall is said to be haunted by a ginger cat, and former inhabitants. The village church " All Saints" which was constructed by Sylivias husbands family, is reported to be haunted by two elderly ladies wearing period clothing, who method the entrance to the church. Their footsteps can be heard, but then quit suddenly when the ladies dissapear into nothing!!
