  9. Derek Dooley dixo...
  10. One point for "The Old Queen’s Head" Sheffield’s oldest pub.

  11. O Fento Fedorento dixo...
  12. El que abusa de un líquido no se mantiene mucho tiempo sólido (Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve)

    Bueno, personalmente no es que abusara mucho de los liquidos, ya que no me gusta pasarme de las 15 pintas.

    Un punto para el Psalter Tavern, por dar cobijo a los Porcos.

    Dos puntos para el Kelham, a pesar de quitar los huevos, o quizás por el hecho de quitarlos y evitar fugas escandalosas de gases de algún PORCO.

    Siete puntos para el Fat Cat, por su gato gordo, por lo entrañable, por su terraza, por la variedad de sus cervezas, por el precio de las mismas, por sus minichistorras y porque es donde algún borracho se inventó la historia esta.

  13. Dardos contra la cultura dixo...
  14. Punto negativo para el restaurante hindú por estar lleno de ingleses y de Paquis

    Punto negativo para el disco pub donde alguno de los Porcoviolentos fueron desalojados a la fuerza, impidiendo a los Porcotranquilos disfrutar de las nativas disfrazadas de enfermeras y policias.

    Punto meganegativo para el Harlequin, que coño es eso de ponerse intelectuales un Domingo por la noche con un Quizz y encima poner mala cara a unos verdaderos "puberos" por jugar a los dardos y gritar como se tiene que hacer en un local como este.

  15. John Ford dixo...
  16. En La Premier de los Pubs de Sheffield, esta el canónico y auténtico Martha´s Trail al completo:
    The Kelham Island Brewery, nuestro " Calamar" y sus huevos cocidos.
    The Fat Cat, cuna y meca de nuestra competición. Lugar de culto.
    The New Barrack Tavern ( The Barracks ) a pesar de que para algunos es territorio enemigo´
    The Hillsborough Hotel con su salsa Henderson y recuerdos a "Full Monty".
    The Wellington ( Previously called the Cask & Cutler) donde Victor cantó como nadie nuestro himno nacional.

  23. Horatio Nelson dixo...
  24. Los ríos de Sheffield son el River Don, River Sheaf, River Loxley, River Rivelin, Porter Brook,el Meers Brook y Owler Brook. Tanto riachuelo junto me motiva.Bebí el brandy de rigor mortis en
    The Lord Nelson.166 Arundel Street

  25. El Gato Gordo dixo...
  26. En primer lugar, voto por mi propio pub, que cojones! Me encanta el queso de cerveza que hago últimamente...
    Me sigue de cerca el Kelham Island (aunque no como sus huevos en vinagre porque me dan unos gases...)
    Después me arrastro cruzando el río hasta el Riverside, no son sus cervezas ni su decoración lo que me atrae, sino la terraza y sus vistas.
    Finalmente una mención especial para el bar del canódromo de Owlerton y su ambiente jocoso donde tantas veces vamos con mi buen amigo Coffee a reírnos de esos pobres canes anoréxicos...
    OTRA DE PATATAS CON MAYONESA AMIGO MIO!!!

  27. Blade dixo...
  28. Top Five:
    "Sheaf House"

    En Wath-upon-Dearne a 5 millas de Sheffield encontramos The Saracens Head.

  35. William Ernest Henley dixo...
  36. Me encanta el motto.
    "Futbol , Cervezas Y Huérfanas". Debíais utilizarlo más a menudo.

  37. Thomo dixo...
  38. The Top Three Post-Anglo-Galicia Cup Pubs of Sheffield;

    The Fat Cat - where the beer garden hosts the great debate about the game, who should of won? who was man-of-the-match?, and the insults begin. Top ales.

    The Kelham Island Tavern - where the back room hosts the continuation of the great debate but more focus in concentrated on the insults. Members of both sides begin to hug in mutual disgust, sorry appreciation, as the ale continues to flow. Top ales too.

    The Harlequin - the home of Ronaldo (well one of them, there are many!). The game is truly forgotten now but then again so is pretty much everything else. Talk is nonsense but friendships strengthen. Nobody cares if the ales are any good just as long as they have one in front of them.

  39. Killing A Ghost dixo...
  40. Escribamos acerca The Porter Brook.

    Alineación cervecera:Greene King IPA / Abbot / Old Speckled Hen / Ruddles County, Ole Trip + Rotating Seasonal Guest Ale. Notable alto

    Comida: Suministró viandas post-partido.Por eso y más, notable alto.

    Inconvenientes: A quien le das la mano por eso de la educación mal entendida.Los baños estan en una montaña. A veces da pereza escalarla.

    Compañía:No nos podemos quejar. Como en Cuba o en Corea del Norte.

    Localización: El rio fluye. Los sonidos del agua me tranquilizan.

  41. Arthur Wellesley dixo...
  42. Sigo los trazos de mi canción en el Hillsborough Hotel Pub.Antes se llamaba The Hero And His Horse. El héroe era yo. Su caballo era mi inolvidable Copenhagen.El cambio de nombre me pareció mezquino.Me consuelo pensando que The Cask & Cutler recuperó su nombre original en 2008. Vuelve a llamarse The Wellington

  43. Joh Ford dixo...
  44. En la Championship League de los pub de Sheffield estan:
    -The Porter Brook.Somos asiduos pero por ahora le doy escasas opciones de ascenso.
    -The Porter Cottage: Cerca del anterior en espacio y nombre.Lucha por no descender.
    -The Harlequin:Donde jugar a los dardos se asemeja a ir a Grozni de picnic.A mayores hay que estar sobrio y ser culto para ganar sus quiz show. Aún no coincidieron las dos cosas.Estaré en la lucha final.
    -The Devonshire Cat: Firme candidato al ascenso.
    -The Penny Black: La camarera más guapa de ls Islas, el viejo más insoportable y la selección de cervezas más infame.Se salva por lo primero.
    -The Riverside: Su terraza ribereña
    es de Premier.El resto del pub le condena a su actual categoría.

  61. Mister Frost dixo...
  62. La alineación fantasmagórica de Sheffield se sustenta en The Old Queen's Head ( Pub más antiuo de la ciudad),en The Ship Inn
    y en The Carbrook Hall que se define como el Sheffield's Most Haunted Public House para que ya que hay fantasmas no haya dudas.

    Hasta la próxima.

  70. The Devonshire Arms pub in Sheffield has a decent Sunday league team, not least because former England and Spurs winger Chris Waddle regularly plays for them. The tricky former sausage maker is now 48, but still turns out in the Sheffield Imperial League. No word on whether he takes the pelanties, though.
    I hope that he is the next sign for the Sheffield Stags.

  71. The Forerunner. dixo...
  72. Sheffield,city and metropolitan borough (pop.,2001: 513,234),South Yorkshire,England.It is situated at the foot of the Pennines.As anglo-Saxon village that became the site of a castle and parish church early in the 12 century,it has been known for its cuterly since medieval times.By 1700 it had a monopoly of the english cutlery trade,and it remains the centre of the industry today.It developed a seteel industry from the mid-19 century and several metallurgical innovations,including the process from making stainless steel, originated there.
    Their best pub is The Fat Cat.
    Their best team is Sheffield United.

  73. Deckard dixo...
  74. Las mejores pintas de cerveza de Sheffield, me las bebí en Bramall Lane.En el Bramall Lane Stand que ahora patrocina Halliwells para ser más exactos.

  75. Breogán dixo...
  76. Fai tempo escribin:
    "Onde o noso himno soa, esta Galiza.
    The Wellington é Galiza"
    Agora que teño novas frescas deo The Red Deer e o Kelham Island o "Lura",podo dicir que tamén pertencen dende hoxe, o noso imaxinario da colectividade,a nosa xeografia da idiosincrasia, alén as nosas costas.

  77. El Futuro dueño del Brown Bear dixo...
  78. Fuera de todos los porcocircuitos por la ciudad del acero más felizmente recuperado para la causa: The Brown Bear.
    Pub Samuel Smith con unos precios de ensueño,se encuentra en el corazón de la ciudad.Bien vale una visita o dos.Tres o cuatro pintas.
    Encima esta en la calle Norfolk.
    Que menos de jabatos y ciervos visiten al rey del bosque en 2011.

  79. Black Country´s Poet dixo...
  80. The beautiful cities of Leeds and Sheffield offer the best of both worlds - affordable, yet exciting and cosmopolitan. They are approximately 40 miles apart but are served by excellent road and rail transport links. Both cities are truly multi-drinkers and multi-hooligans, with vampires from all over the world representing many different nations and breeds. Our vampires integrate easily into the vibrant, modern cities of Leeds and Sheffield where many diverse communities contribute to the life of the historic county of Yorkshire.

  81. Ronnie O'Sullivan dixo...
  82. Me desayuno leyendo el siguiente texto en uno de los periódicos más importantes del vecino oriental.Lo he manipulado un poquito.Como suelen hacer todos:
    Sheffield es una ciudad de poco más de medio millón de habitantes con miles de estudiantes repartidos en dos grandes universidades,
    excepcionales y acogedores pubs y un paisaje urbano en el que se mezclan el pasado industrial ,el feísmo de los setenta, el ladrillo de fábrica con el hormigón y las colmenas de cristal. Como tantas ciudades de provincias del Norte de Inglaterra cuenta con varios museos de arte contemporáneo o sucedáneos y compite por ser sede de cualquier evento nacional que merezca la pena.Para hacerse una idea: aquí se rodó Full Monty y de aquí son los Artic Monkeys, los Owls,los Blades y los Stags y algunos tractores.

  83. Peregrino Vato dixo...
  84. Cuando me fui a la ciudad Sheffield,no era para conquistarla,
    yo ya estaba conquistado por ella.
    Sus riachuelos,sus cervezas y la voz demasiado cazallosa de muchas hermosas mujeres inglesas avalarón mi peregrinación.

  85. Gano Di Maganza dixo...
  86. ¿Qué es esta ciudad? Sheffield.
    En la huida de Os porcos nada más llamativo en el cubo negro de la noche que un rectángulo de luz amarilla donde buscar refugio. Sheffield.
    Tiene esta incógnita el misterio de la ventanas iluminadas de los pubs en lo más hondo de a madrugada. Sheffield.
    Donde la certeza de la cerveza.Sheffield.

  87. Vaga Lego dixo...
  88. Manía con los programas oficiales,con la organización,
    con el detalle,con los datos.
    Seguid la máxima que se extrae de la siguiente conversación:
    "¿Donde estabas esta mañana?
    - No recuerdo, hace demasiado tiempo.
    - ¿Que harás esta noche?
    - Nunca hago planes con tanta antelación".
    Y Os Porcos Bravos,seran más felices.

  91. Vate con un Bate dixo...
  92. Donde los huéspedes no tienen por qué preocuparse de abusar de la hospitalidad,al contrario,la hospitalidad es para abusar de ella.
    Así calibramos su hondura y el espíritu con que se ofrece.

    Ademas del famoso Martha´s Trail,Os porcos bravos tomarse unas pintas en el Luftwaffe´s Trail,inagurado un 12-12-1940.
    Siguiendo las huellas de un kraut enfurecido,tomen nota y apunten:
    "When I was gathering information with regard to the destruction of the Marples public house during the Sheffield Blitz I discovered that the Marples was one of nine pubs that were totally destroyed that night. The others were

    The Westminster - High Street

    The Royal Oak - King Street

    The Devonshire Arms - South Street, The Moor

    The Shades Vaults - Watson's Walk. The pub was founded in 1797

    The Three Horse Shoes - Norfolk Street (Jehu Street)

    The Bodega - Market Place, High Street (known prior to 1904 as either The George or The George and Dragon). As the following photograph shows, the Bodega was totally gutted.

    Other pubs in the area also suffered extensive damage some of which can be seen today. The Cossack which stands at the foot of Howard Street adjacent to Sheffield Hallam University's City Campus had the top floor and roof blown off in the raid and has been a single story "bungalow pub." ever since.

    The buildings of The Sheffield Free Brewery Co. (founded 1900) that were situated on Queens Road suffered a direct hit but thankfully the bomb failed to explode.

    The other brewery that was hit by faired a lot worse. Thomas Rawson's and Co Brewery situated in Pond Street Sheffield was totally destroyed by enemy action and unlike the Marples was never rebuilt. The irony of the destruction was that in the late 1930's Sheffield Corporation was giving serious consideration to demolishing the Brewery itself and constructing a new technical college. The air raid flattened the site and the brewery was never rebuilt. It was developed after the war as Sheffield Polytechnic which is known nowadays as Sheffield Hallam University".

  114. Regreso a Sheffield
    Bajo el cielo arrasado

    de febrero,marzo,o abril contempla
    con los ojos de entonces
    esta ciudad de nieve

    y tercas ruinas, mira
    con antigua inocencia
    lo que ahora es costumbre,

    agostada presencia,
    luz fría bajo el cielo
    arrasado de invierno.

    Quién regresa, qué buscas
    con inquietud cansada
    en las calles sin nadie

    si todo prendió fuego,
    ardió en la hoguera negra
    de la palabra. Llama

    que fue deseo, nada
    te queda de aquel tiempo:
    letra muerta, aridez,

    desnutrido fulgor
    que los ojos remedan
    esperando un sentido.

    No hay regreso posible.
    Tu ciudad ya no existe.
    ¿Existió alguna vez?

    Conocías sus calles
    pues nacieron en ti.
    Tu ciudad era espejo

    donde lentas palabras
    te miraron mirándola:
    blanco espejo empañado

    de tu aliento. Porco Bravo
    entre sombras, tú vuelves
    para no verte, niegas

    tu antigua voz. Borrada
    inocencia, febrero
    es silencio en tus labios,

    luz arrasada, muda
    ciudad inexistente.

  115. George Orwell dixo...
  116. Sheffield, I suppose, could justly claim to be called the ugliest town in the Old World: its inhabitants, who want it to
    be pre-eminent in everything, very likely do make that claim for it. It has a population of half a million and it contains fewer decent buildings than
    the average East Anglian village of five hundred. And the stench! If at
    rare moments you stop smelling sulphur it is because you have begun
    smelling gas. Even the shallow river that runs through the town is-usually
    bright yellow with some chemical or other. Once I halted in the street and
    counted the factory chimneys I could see; there were thirty-three of them,
    but there would have been far more if the air had not been obscured by smoke. One scene especially lingers in my mind. A frightful patch of waste
    ground (somehow, up there, a patch of waste ground attains a squalor that would be impossible even in London) trampled bare of grass and littered with newspapers and old saucepans. To the right an isolated row of gaunt
    four-roomed houses, dark red, blackened by smoke. To the left an
    interminable vista of factory chimneys, chimney beyond chimney, fading away
    into a dim blackish haze. Behind me a railway embankment made of the slag
    from furnaces. In front, across the patch of waste ground, a cubical
    building of red and yellow brick, with the sign 'Thomas Grocock, Haulage
    Contractor'.

    At night, when you cannot see the hideous shapes of the houses and the blackness of everything, a town like Sheffield assumes a kind of sinister magnificence. Sometimes the drifts of smoke are rosy with sulphur, and
    serrated flames, like circular saws, squeeze themselves out from beneath
    the cowls of the foundry chimneys. Through the open doors of foundries you see fiery serpents of iron being hauled to and fro by redlit boys, and you
    hear the whizz and thump of steam hammers and the scream of the iron under
    the blow. The pottery towns are almost equally ugly in a pettier way. Right in among the rows of tiny blackened houses, part of the street as it were,
    are the 'pot banks'--conical brick chimneys like gigantic burgundy
    bottles buried in the soil and belching their smoke almost in your face.
    You come upon monstrous clay chasms hundreds of feet across and almost as
    deep, with little rusty tubs creeping on chain railways up one side, and on
    the other workmen clinging like samphire-gatherers and cutting into the
    face of the cliff with their picks. I passed that way in snowy weather, and
    even the snow was black. The best thing one can say for the pottery towns
    is that they are fairly small and stop abruptly. Less than ten miles away you can stand in un-defiled country, on the almost naked hills, and the pottery towns are only a smudge in the distance.

    When you contemplate such ugliness as this, there are two questions
    that strike you. First, is it inevitable? Secondly, does it matter?
    Come On Porcos ¡

  117. Perkele Maljanne dixo...
  118. ¿Ya serán owls o blades los lectores de este invento?
    .-¿Cómo fue Sheffield la primera vez?
    .-Como estar en el centro de Inglaterra.

    Calle de la iglesia se sitúa en centro de Sheffield en la referencia de la rejilla de SK353874. Funciona para aproximadamente 450 metros en una dirección del viento del oeste de su ensambladura con Fargate y Calle principal a su terminación en la encrucijada formó por la ensambladura con la calle del oeste, la calle de Leopold y la calle de Townhead.

    La calle de la iglesia no tiene ninguna tiendas al por menor en ella, sino que tiene algunos de los edificios más significativos en Sheffield. Catedral de Sheffield y Pasillo de los Cutlers ambos están parados en la calle de la iglesia. La catedral es un grado uno mencionado el edificio, construcción comenzó en 1430 aunque una iglesia ha existido en el sitio desde el twelfth siglo. Construyeron en 1832 y son las jefaturas a los Cutlers Pasillo del Compañía de Cutlers en Hallamshire, es los terceros Cutlers Pasillo en este sitio y era extendido entre 1865 y 1867.

    Otros edificios mencionados en la calle de la iglesia son Banco real del grupo de Escocia, HSBC Banco y NatWest Edificios de bancocuáles están parados de cualquier lado del Pasillo de los Cutlers y se construyen en un estilo similar. Las premisas de la casa pública de la casa de piedra también se enumeran aunque la publicación ha estado cerrada por algunos años y está parada vacía. En agosto de 2005, Londres y las características asociadas compraron la casa de piedra para que £2,500,000 y el plan lo incorporen dentro del próximo Cuadrado de la huerta centro de compras que poseen. Esto creará 42.000 pies cuadrados de espacio reconstruido.

    Una estatua de bronce de James Montgomery “El poeta cristiano” está parado en el recinto de la catedral en la calle de la iglesia apenas al este de la catedral. Otro edificio significativo en el lado norteño de la carretera es el centro del donante de sangre, un edificio grande en la esquina con la calle de Townhead que era a Jobcentre en los años 80. Hay a Lloyds TSB ejerza la actividad bancaria también en el lado norteño de la calle en el número 14. Siguiendo el oeste encima de la calle en el mismo lado en el número 20 está parados compartimientos de los Cairnsconstruido entre 1894 y 1896. Fueron diseñados por Charles Hadfield en el estilo gótico de Tudor para los abogados Henrio y el maxwell de Alfred, los compartimientos tiene cantería exterior decorativa del Tory franco incluyendo una estatua de cuatro pies de Cairns del Earl, un anterior Señor canciller. La calle de la iglesia tiene sus el propios Sheffield Supertram la parada directamente delante de la catedral y de la ella lleva ese nombre. Otros negocios en la calle de la iglesia incluyen las fuerzas armadas que reclutan el centro y varias agencias de colocación.

  120. SHEFFIELD IN THE 19TH CENTURY

    In 1801, at the time of the first census Sheffield had a population of over 31,000. By the standards of the time it was a large town. By 1851 it had grown to over 135,000. Like all Victorian towns Sheffield was dirty and unsanitary. However even for the time Sheffield had a reputation as a grimy and dirty town (not surprising considering its heavy industries). In 1832 there was an epidemic of cholera in Sheffield which killed 402 people.

    However not all the houses in Sheffield were slums. In the early 19th century a middle class suburb was built west of the town around Glossop Road.

    In the working class areas of Sheffield the worst houses were back-to-backs. These houses were literally joined back to back without even an alley between them. In 1864 the authorities forbade the building of many more such houses. However those that had already been built remained.

    There were, nevertheless some improvements in Sheffield during the 19th century. In 1818 an Act of Parliament formed a body of men called the Improvement Commissioners with powers to pave and clean the streets of Sheffield. They also formed a police force. From 1818 the streets of Sheffield were lit by gas.

    The first cemetery in Sheffield opened in 1836. In 1830 a corn exchange where grain could be bought and sold was opened (it was later rebuilt).

    In 1832 a dispensary opened in Sheffield where the poor could obtain free medicines. The present Cutlers Hall was built in 1832. In 1836 the Botanical Gardens opened. At first they were privately owned but the council purchased them in 1898.

    In 1843 Sheffield was given a charter (a document giving the townspeople certain rights). From then on Sheffield had an elected town council, which gradually took over the powers of the old Improvement Commissioners. Sheffield was made a city in 1893. The Town Hall was built in 1897.

    Ruskin Gallery was founded in 1875 and Mappin Art Gallery opened in 1887.

    In the early 19th century a private company provided piped water. In 1859 they built a dam across Dale Dike. On March 11 1864 this dam burst. As a result 240 people drowned in Sheffield. The council took over the water supply in 1887. In the 1870s the council built sewers and drains. At first raw sewage was pumped into rivers but in 1886 a sewage treatment plant was built.

    Life in 19th century Sheffield gradually improved. The first public library in Sheffield was built in 1856. From 1873 horse drawn trams ran in the streets. In 1899 the first electric trams ran in the streets of Sheffield.

    During the 19th century the old industries like iron continued to boom. Then in 1856 Henry Bessemer invented a way of producing better quality steel. In 1858 he began producing steel in Sheffield. Button making flourished. However in 1840 a way was found to make silver plate by electroplating replacing the old Sheffield plate. Cutlery continued to be the dominant industry in Sheffield.

  122. All the way along, from Leeds to Sheffield, it is coal and iron, and iron and coal. It was dark before we reached Sheffield; so that we saw the iron furnaces, in all the horrible splendour of their everlasting blaze. Nothing can be conceived more grand or more terrific than the yellow waves of fire, that incessantly issue from the top of these furnaces, some of which are close by the way-side. Nature has placed the beds of iron and the beds of coal alongside of each other, and art has taught man to make one, to operate upon the other so as to turn the iron-stone into liquid matter, which is drained off from the bottom of the furnace, and afterwards moulded into blocks and bars, and all sorts of things. The combustibles are put into the top of the furnace, which stands thirty, forty, or fifty feet up in the air, and the ever-blazing mouth of which is kept supplied with coal and coke and ironstone, from little iron waggons forced up by steam, and brought down again to be re-filled. It is a surprising thing to behold; and it is impossible to behold it. without being convinced that, whatever other nations may do with cotton and with wool, they will never equal England, with regard to things made of iron and steel. This Sheffield, and the land all about it, is one bed of iron and coal. They call it Black Sheffield, and black enough it is; but from this one town and its environs go nine-tenths of the knives that are used in the whole world; there being, I understand, no knives made at Birmingham; the manufacture of which place consists of the larger sorts of implements, of locks of all sorts, and guns and swords, and of all the endless articles of hardware which go to the furnishing of a house. As to the land, viewed in the way of agriculture, it really does appear to be very little worth. I have not seen, except at Harewood and Ripley, a stack of wheat since I came into Yorkshire; and even there, the whole I saw, and all that I saw during a ride of six miles that I took into Derbyshire the day before yesterday, all put together would not make the one-half of what! have many times seen in one single rick-yard of the vales of Wiltshire. But this is all very proper: these coal-diggers, and iron-smelters, and knife-makers, compel us to send the food to them, which, indeed, we do very cheerfully, in exchange for the produce of their rocks, and the wondrous works of their hands.

    The trade of Sheffield has fallen off, less in proportion than that of the other manufacturing districts. North America, and particularly the United States, where the people have so much victuals to cut, form a great branch of the custom of this town. If the people of Sheffield could only receive a tenth part of what their knives sell for by retail in America, Sheffield might pave its streets with silver. A gross of knives and forks is sold to the Americans, for less than three knives and forks, can be bought at retail in a country store in America. No fear of rivalship in this trade. The Americans may lay on their tariff, and double it, and triple it; but as long as they continue to cut their victuals, from Sheffield, they must have the things to cut it with.

  124. SHEFFIELD IN THE 20th CENTURY

    By 1900 the population of Sheffield was over 400,000. This was partly due to boundary changes. In 1921 the boundaries were extended to include Handsworth and Wadsley. In 1935 they were altered to include Totley, Dore, Beauchief and Greenhill.

    Sheffield University was founded in 1905 and the first cinema in Sheffield was built in 1910. Then in 1913 the first stainless steel was cast in Sheffield.

    In 1916 Sheffield was bombed by German zeppelins leaving 28 people dead.

    After World War I the heavy industries of Sheffield entered a recession. There was severe unemployment in the city in the 1920s and 1930s. However that era also marked the beginning of large-scale slum clearance. The first council houses were built in Sheffield at that time. Meanwhile Graves Art Gallery opened in 1934.

    During the Second World War 589 people were killed in Sheffield by German bombing and nearly 3,000 houses were destroyed.

    In the 1950s and 1960s slum clearance in Sheffield continued. Many new council houses were built in estates like Gleadless Valley. Council flats were built at Park Hill and Hyde Park. In the 1950s and 1960s many Asian and West Indian immigrants came to Sheffield. Towards the end of the 20th century the 'satellite' communities of Dronfield, Mosborough, Chapeltown and Stocksbridge grew rapidly.

    Castle Market shopping centre was built in 1959. Meadow Hall shopping centre was built in 1990. Meanwhile in 1985 the Fire/Police museum opened in Sheffield.

    The traditional industries in Sheffield such as iron, steel and cutlery declined in the 20th century. (Although there is still an important industry making surgical instruments). As in other cities there was a shift away from employment in manufacturing industries to jobs in service industries.

    Sheffield Museum of Popular Music opened in 1991 and the Sheffield Supertram began operating in 1994. Sheffield City Airport opened in 1997.

    SHEFFIELD IN THE 21st CENTURY

    In the 21st century Sheffield is thriving and it is growing rapidly. Millennium Galleries opened in 2001 and the National Ice Centre opened in 2003. Also in 2003 the Winter Garden opened. Millennium Square in Sheffield opened in 2006.
    2007,The Anglogalician Cup was born.
    Today the population of Sheffield is 580,000.

  126. Sheffield. Esta ciudad, menos popular, es conocida especialmente por dos cosas: los cuchillos y la película Full Monty, que la situó en el mapa para mucha gente. Ciertamente, no se trata de una ciudad muy bonita, pero merece la pena darse una vuelta por ella y recorrerla tranquilamente. Además, hay sitios interesantes.
    También me gustó bastante la Catedral de Sheffield, muy chula. Imprescindible también Millenium Gallery, con una buena serie de exposiciones, alguna cambiante, de lo más entretenidas.

  130. El Leeds United ocupa la tercera posición de equipo al que señalan más aficiones inglesas como uno de sus tres principales rivales. Según este sondeo, para el Bradford y el Hull City el Leeds es su principal rival. Mientras, lo eligen como su segundo máximo rival las aficiones de Huddersfield, Sheffield United y Sheffield Wednesday. Por último, también como tercero de sus máximos rivales ha sido elegido por los "supporters" de Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Derby County y Barnsley.
    O sea, everybody hates Leeds Utd
