Mr Grahame Hague – Sheffield & Tinsley Canal – History & Evolution. 24th October

Graham took us on a journey from the canal basin all the way to Tinsley where before the Sheffield arm was built the canal ended; largely because the Duke of Rutland was protecting his own interests. Through some lovely old pictures, he traced the emergence of the canal and its basin to a thriving terminus for goods coming into Sheffield. Unlike many other canals this one did not immediately close when the railways emerged and continued to see goods unloaded right up to the 1970’s. Full of facts for Graham is clearly a mine of information!
