Sheaf Quay
This building, dating from 1823 and formerly called the Sheaf Works, was the first cutlery factory in the city that became famous for that trade. It is now listed grade 2 (List Entry Number 1246606). A swan glides past on the canal.
Sheffield and Tinsley Canal
The Sheffield and Tinsley Canal was opened in 1814 to carry boats between the navigable River Don at Tinsley and a new basin close to the heart of Sheffield. Before this date, goods had to be carried over poor roads to Tinsley Wharf on the River Don. LinkExternal link
