Burngreave is an area in the centre of the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield, lying just north of the city centre, and its name derives from a wood (known as 'Burnt Greave') that used to dominate the landscape. This book, illustrated throughout with lots of colour and black and white photographs of the people and places of the area, offers a fascinating history of Burngreave, and the people that now live their.
From the rear side cover: Between 2004 and 2007 a series of workshops, displays, interviews and events took place involving residents, past residents and friends of the area.
