Traveling England – South Yorkshire and Sheffield

If you need destinations to plan to visit either as a tourist visiting England or as UK based traveller then there are certain parts of England that you simply must visit at least once in your lifetime and one of those has to be South Yorkshire.

Most people consider Yorkshire to be an industrial county full of factories and jammed full of houses for the workers but nothing could be further from the truth and South Yorkshire is vastly different to what you can imagine.

Granted the region did grow and become well known for its coal mines and the steel industry but a lot of the mining was in east and the north of Yorkshire, although Sheffield is world famous for its steel.

Situated partially in the historic Peak District National Park a visit to South Yorkshire will give you unprecedented access to this, one of the world’s most famous and largest national parks, which has enough to keep even the most active of holiday makers busy for a lifetime.

Activities in the park include rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and camping, bird watching and so much more, you can even take a balloon flight across the peaks or even a helicopter ride if you enjoy flying or don’t mind digging a little deeper in you pockets for a memorable experience that will probably stay with you for the rest of your life.

So if you are looking for a touch (or a whole lot) of outdoors activities during your visit then your off to a good start.

The area is also home to a number of historic buildings you can visit whilst your out and about most of which are National heritage properties for example

Brodsworth Hall and Gardens Brodsworth Hall and gardens, just to the north of Doncaster is a true survivor of the mid 1800’s and is said to be one of the finest complete examples of Victorian living and the most complete Victorian country houses ever to have survived in this country. A lot of the house is still original and it still has the wonderful Victorian gardens.

Also worth a visit if you like to see the history of the country is the Cannon Hall Museum with its gardens, which you’ll find near Barnsley. Cannon Hall is a country house museum and was the home of the Spencer family the home of the Spencer family. Exhibits in the museum include fine art, furniture and collections of glassware, and if you have an interest in anything of a military nature you’ll also be pleased to find a couple of regimental museums housed here as well, namely the Light Dragoons and the 13th and 18th Hussars.

The favorite main city in the area of course has to be the city of Sheffield which considering its steel and industrial heritage is surprisingly one the greenest cities in Europe and is known as the city of trees as there are said to be in excess of two million, as well as a large number of parks and even areas of scientific interest.

Also one of the largest cities in England you could also consider Sheffield as the London of the north as it has the largest theatre complex outside London, and is home to the world renowned Crucible and Lyceum theatres.

The City of Sheffield and Its History

Sheffield is one of the largest cities in England. Like most other English cities, Sheffield is a very old and historic city. The city of Sheffield is part of the county of South Yorkshire. South Yorkshire is a metropolitan county in the Yorkshire and Humber region of England.


The city has a local council called the Sheffield City council governing it. Transportation facilities like railways, roadways, coaches, airways, water transport and other forms of local transport are abundant in the city. The city has got world-class schools, colleges and universities. In sports, swimming is taught very well in this historical city. Several national and international swimmers have emerged from the city. The world’s first official football club was formed in the city of Sheffield. The city also has got many indoor as well as outdoor stadiums and playgrounds to encourage and facilitate sports. Some of the stadiums in the city of Sheffield are “the Hillsborough Stadium”, “the Don Valley Stadium”, etc. There is also an area called the Sheffield Ski Village, which is an artificial ski scope complex. There are many cinema theaters, museums and theaters for Musical Concerts (Including the Crucible Theatre and the Lyceum Theatre) too.


The roots of the city of Sheffield age back to 12,800 years. This period comes under the Late Upper Palaeolithic Period. Creswell Crags was the first area of Sheffield to be inhabited. Later a tribe called the Brigantes inhabited and took charge of the city. They started to develop it. They constructed many hills and forts in and around the city of Sheffield. Later on, the Celtic people and the new inhabitants Anglian Settlers, merged together forming the city of Sheffield.

The Sheffield castle was built after the Norman Conquest. This castle was meant for the protection of the people residing nearby. With time, the development of a small town took place with its own market and trade. In 1740s the manufacturing of crucible steel started in Sheffield which is one of the major landmarks in the history of the city. Later the manufacture of weapons was also started. With the advent of Industrial Revolution many new Steel and Iron industries were set up which brought great improvement in the economic status of the city. But all this faced a major decline during the second world war. After the world war, due to immigration of laborers for work, the city got crowded and sanitation and hygiene deteriorated. Cholera also broke out and many of the city dwellers lost their lives. One of the historians called Sheffield to be the ugliest city of old England. But, Sheffield gradually regained its vigor and vitality. At present, the city has flourished again and is one of the top English cities.


Sheffield is now one of the eight largest cities of England right now which displays the resilience of the city in spite of all the adversaries.

Traveling the World – Sheffield England, the City of Trees

ok, die issue met mrwaterproof, die site was vrot gespam. Basiclly hackers het heeltemal oorgevat. Hierdie dinge gebeur met websites. Dis niks te doen met lack of security op die website nie, dis mense wat sekere sites target om te gebruik om tags ens optesit om hulle sites te boost. Daar was meer as 300 posts op die website geplaas. Ek het als verwyder en alle IP adresse laat blok behalwe myne.

Die website moet gereeld gemonitor word en updates moet gedoen word. Ons het heel aan die begin ooreengekom dat ek die website host, Maar daar was geen spraake van n maintainance plan nie, julle is verantwoordelik vir die updates op die website.

Ek het al die passwords verander en security plugin geupdate. Ek het die website heeltemal skoongemaak van al die spam en malisiouse fils wat hackers geplant het.

Die domain moet weer hernu word voor die 1ste Augustus 2020 wat die koste van R97 beloop. En jaarlikse hosting wat daarby ook hernu moet word. Die website se spasie was ook versadig en dus moes ek die hosting paket upgrade na meer spasie. Julle gebruik tans ne so oor die 4 GB. Van R60 maandeliks na R109 maandelik x 12 maande R1308.

Die werk wat gedoen moes word om die website heeltemal skoon te maak en files verwyder ens kom neer op n totaal van R 1800…Maar ek gaan jou nie invoice vir dit nie. Ek moes baie van my werk wat vir my n inkomste inbring eenkant toe skyf om hierdie te doen. Sodra die website met login details oorgegee word aan die klient, is enigiets wat vout gaan wat nie hosting related is nie, nie die website designer se verantwoordelikheid nie.

Ek vra dus dat die vorige invoice van 21 Mei 2020 asb betaal sal word. Ek sit die site under construction, en sodra ek betaling ontvang maak ek die site weer live.

Die hosting en domain renewal moet asb voor 1 Aug 2020 betaal word. Indien jy verkies om die hosting op jou eie oortevat is jy welkom om so te doen en sal jou help daarmee. Maar ek gaan nie die domain losmaak voor die invoice van 21 Mei 2020 nie betaal is nie.
