  1. Glad Patrick is on the mend and still doing his stuff - his videos are great (the wild camping is amazing... I'd never dare to do any of that!).
  2. Highly recommended... except for that initial 'stooping' bit. 😂 Indeed. And remember, just because it seems OK here now it only takes a bit of rain upstream for it to start filling up quickly (you don't want to get stuck down there!). If you go, make sure you go with the Sheaf & Porter Rivers Trust tours as and when they get them up and running again - they are really experienced and great guides (plus it helps support the Trust's aims).
  3. New video here - very interesting what is beneath our feet and great tours of below the station, etc!
  4. A tram conductor told us the other day that there had been 'some delays' and works now aren't likely to end until mid-late September. Not sure how true it is (they blamed the 'rainy weather'?!).
  5. Notices of forfeiting their lease appeared on the doors this week. More info here: https://www.deejayone.co.uk/music/feature/item/117-sheffield-nightclub-music-venue-the-plug-forfeits-lease-closes-for-good.html
  6. I'd say it is a really mixed crowd across the area! There's something for everyone. The traditionalists will go in the likes of Fat Cat and Kelham Island Tavern and 'trendy' people edge towards Church and Cutlery Works, etc. Of course there'll be some mixture of people - especially those on a crawl around the area and especially at weekends. Peddler weekend in particular brings a lively crowd down. I think Gardeners has been affected a little by Cutlery Works as people drift between the two and they have a different kind of clientele generally, but the extra custom can only be a good thing, can it not?
  7. Ironically the one place I haven't tried yet! Will give it a go soon, heard lots of good things.
  8. Nice one! What did you think? Which was your favourite?
  9. Thank you! Shhhh... Don't tell the other venues, but Piña is my favourite bar around Kelham currently. You HAVE to try the Tacos... incredible. The suggestion is great too, thanks. Those places (and more) were going to feature in this video, but it was just getting too long so had to be cut and focussed mainly on food and drink. I'm looking at putting together a video of 'different' things to do in Sheffield soon and they certainly fit in to that theme though... there's also Battleaxe (axe throwing!) off Rutland Road that I want to give a try for it too.
  10. You'll be amazed at the difference. Very gentrified and lots of development. Certainly one of the best areas of the city to head to for food and drink - particularly great in the summer sunshine. Peddler Night Market is a destination event too, so if you can make it on a Peddler weekend (first Friday/Saturday of each month) the place really comes alive (get down early - it gets busy!).
  11. No freebies! 😯 I did consider maybe looking for some sponsorship from some of the venues or something for it (it cost me quite a it of time and money to make!) but didn't go for it because I want the series to be as impartial as possible. That said, I'm working on a fuller series of these videos (with better quality production) right now so if any local businesses would like to sponsor them we could discuss how we could make it work with that proviso of retaining editorial independence (we could work out some spots or something). Also - if anyone has any ideas of things to feature in the videos let me know. There's no limit to what topics or things can be featured; whether it be historical stuff, events, people and places, etc, etc. I obviously have a few ideas I'm working on, but the more ideas the better!
  12. Thank you! I'm currently working on more to complete. whole series of these videos, so keep an eye out (subscribe!) on my YouTube channel. There's also a short guide I did to the Sheffield Food Festival and a few other shorter pieces on there currently. Thank you. The area really has developed loads - it is amazing considering it was a pretty run-down rough place to go just a couple of decades ago. And there really is something for everyone. There's loads we missed off and even in the ~8 weeks since we made the video I know of 6 more great venues that have opened up around there.
  13. Here's a little video guide of places to go in and around the Kelham Island area... 🙂
  14. The latest on Tramlines moving to Hillsborough Park for 2018 (updates from the meeting)... http://sheff.info/TramlinesUpdate
