Meadowhall in Sheffield before the shopping centre was built

The Meadowhall area before the shopping centre was built there. This video shows the old steel factories (was it Hadfields or Firth Browns?)

I remember Hadfields very well, I used to inspect their cranes at one time. I recall the area was called East Hecla then.

Where did the name Meadowhall come from? Was it just thought up by marketing people?

I worked in the melting shop at East Hecla in 1980.

Meadowhall was a place well before East Hecla came on the scene. Howells Tubes, Yorkshire Engine and a few others were based there....Meadowhall  doubtless had a nicer "ring" than "Tinsley" for the marketing men
