Following the launch in August 2020 of the successful book about life and times in Nether Edge throughout World War Two the History group decided to organise guided walks highlighting the worst hit areas. . The aim was to bring to life the hardship and worry that the residents of Nether Edge had to overcome from 1940 to 1945.
With a duration of around an hour and a half starting at St Andrews church on Psalter lane this has proven to be a great adventure for all the family.
Topics covered include “What life was like in those times”, “Actual sites and stories about where the bombs fell”, “An in depth look at the Sheffield Blitz” and finally the “Relief at the End of the War”.
Unfortunately to date the Coronavirus regulations have limited groups to 5 plus the leader and from September to December 2020 over 20 walks were completed with positive feedback.
Hunters bar school also organised a version of the walk available which can be downloaded from this website at the following links:
