There will be several events for Sheffield Heritage Open Days on the weekend of Fri 8th to Sun 10th September 2017.
Pitsmoor is an old parish of Sheffield. Burngreave is a name that has been used since Victorian times to denote an administrative district and now one of the Sheffield Council’s wards. The parish and the Council ward do not completely overlap so some places are in the parish and not in the ward – and vice-versa. The parish and the ward have a signifcant history and contribution to the story and culture of Sheffield. Find out by coming along to these events.
