Guide to Rural England - South Yorkshire

Guide to Rural England - South Yorkshire

Published by Travel Publishing
South Yorkshire tends to be overlooked as a
tourist venue, but this is a region of great age
and antiquity and, in many places, real beauty,
both natural and man-made. Sheffield claims
to be England’s greenest city, and the wild
open spaces of the Pennine moorlands of the
Peak District National Park roll right up to its
western boundaries.

South Yorkshire tends to be overlooked as atourist venue, but this is a region of great ageand antiquity and, in many places, real beauty,both natural and man-made. Sheffield claimsto be England’s greenest city, and the wildopen spaces of the Pennine moorlands of thePeak District National Park roll right up to its western boundaries.Sheffield’s prosperity is founded on steeland, in particular, cutlery, and though there arefew ancient buildings in England’s fourth-largest city to explore, there is a wealth of museums and galleries on offer to the visitor. To the north of Sheffield is Barnsley, whoseprosperity comes from the rich seams of coalthat have been exploited in the local area.Meanwhile, to the east lies Rotherham, whereiron ore has been mined and smelted since the12th century. While its wealth is certainly based upon metal, Rotherham is also thehome of Rockingham Pottery, which was oncefavoured by royalty.Further east again is the busy riverside townof Doncaster, which was established by theRomans and today has the air of a pleasant
South Yorkshire
market town. However, this was once one of the country’s most important centres of steamlocomotive manufacture and it is famous forhaving built
 Mallard 
, which still holds therecord for the top speed attained by a steamtrain. Today, though, Doncaster is best knownas the home of the St Leger, Britain’s oldestclassic horse race, first run in 1776.Elsewhere in the county visitors candiscover the delights of Roche Abbey, a12th-century Cistercian house, ConisbroughCastle, which boasts the oldest stone keep inEngland, and the faded Victorian grandeur of Brodsworth Hall.
