So what else was there to see at Sheffield Manor? Well the cafe was worth a visit. The cafe is a bit further down the hill on Manor Oakes Farm. It is staffed by the friendliest volunteers and the food is gorgeous. The sell veg that has been grown on the allotments on the hill at the side of the farm.
Kenneth Steel who painted a lot of the old railway posters back then. The Co-op and Castle market in Sheffield are built on the site of the old castle - the footings are still visible and apparently if you find the market superintendent in the fish market on a Thursday, he'll show you round them! The painting had been found recently at the co-ops HQ in Manchester - in a store room and is now on permanent loan to the Manor. For those of you who are local, Hillsborough is to the left of the painting with Attercliffe to the right. You can see the confluence of the Sheaf and the Don on here.
