A bus ride round Attercliffe

Recommended Posts

I've not long got in after enjoying a bus ride round Attercliffe organised by Mike Higginbottom.

From the perspective of the upper deck of a 1955 Sheffield Bus (rear platform entrance and stairs) starting at the bus station we were taken round the area and given a running commentary on the history of this former village as we toured famous locations. We made three stops on the way and visited the English Institute of Sport (opened 2003), the Rediscovered Zion Congregational Church Graveyard (the resting place of the Read Family and the 19th Century Abolitionist Mary Ann Rawson) dating from 1805 and finally Attercliffe Library - now a music cafe originally opened 1894.

There will be another tour running on June 30th. Meet at 2pm but tickets are limited and must be booked in advance via http://www.mikehigginbottominterestingtimes.co.uk/?product=a-bus-ride-round-attercliffe-june-30th-2019

Highly recommended.
