The Hole in the Road is one of Sheffield's most memorable landmarks. 25 years after its closure we take an in-depth look at the popular subterranean shopping precinct at Castle Square.

Greasy Vera's famous food van in Sheffield was a popular place to grab some post-drinks food or for shift workers to grab a bite to eat. Chegg Burger, anyone?

The list of gone-but-not-forgotten nightclubs in Sheffield is huge. Probably the most fondly remembered is the The Limit.

Competitive supermarkets and online shopping have all but killed off the humble local shop nowadays, but in the days of personal service and localised retail there was another set of unique outlets fondly remembered in Sheffield — The Fletchers Van!

The city now has its own local TV station in Sheffield Live! TV. But did you know the Steel City had its own TV channel way back in the 1970s?

The mecca for all children and a bind for all parents, long before the soul-less, cavernous warehouses of Toys R Us that killed the mystique of the toy emporium, Sheffield had Redgates. The toy shop of all toy shops.
