I took hubby into Sheffield today as he has been going stir crazy indoors - he is a very impatient patient! We had a visit to the Graves Art Gallery to see the Warhol exhibition - it was very thought provoking and really interesting.
We took a small wander around the city centre before heading for lunch.
On the hour, the cutlery grinders come out and sharpen their knives in the middle of Orchard Square.
It was a beautiful afternoon for a wander around. I thought the light looked lovely on the city hall.
I nipped in to take a photograph of the ceiling in the foyer for you too.
These old buildings still stand slap bang in the shopping district. They are earmarked to be demolished when the brand new shopping centre finally gets built (if it ever does!) This building used to house "finishers" for the cutlery industry - I hope that they save the sign over the door.
Some of the older buildings in the "Silversmiths" district of the city have been restored and some reused. I know that this company still exists, but I don't know of they still use this building.
The floral borders and roundabouts have just about finished blooming now. They have been lovely thoughout the year.
I love a walk around the city centre. But the invalid was soon tired today, so we made our way for a sit down and something to eat. I'll show you where we went later.
