About the Book
As nourished by industry as it is by nature, Sheffield is a city with a blissfully split personality. Its role as a hub of the Industrial Revolution and the birthplace of stainless steel is well documented, but this quintessentially English city enjoys an abundance of green spaces that banish the ghosts of industrial smog forever.
Nige Burton is a freelance writer, novelist and travel journalist. His work has been featured in numerous national and local publications. A passionate photographer, he has travelled widely throughout the UK, Europe and Asia capturing locales as diverse as the windswept St Kilda archipelago, Chernobyl, Transylvania’s verdant woodlands, the vast plains of Siberia, and the thriving cityscapes of Budapest, Zurich, Prague, Cracow, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Moscow, Ekaterinburg and Beijing to name but a few. He lives in the sleepy seaside town of his birth on England’s north west coast.
