Sheffield Drift is a series of urban walks led by Mick Nott. For Sheffield Modern, drifters will begin with a ten-minute tram ride from Sheffield Station, past the site of the Norfolk Park flats, up to the Spring Lane tram stop at Arbourthorne. From there, Mick will lead you back down to the city centre on foot, passing examples of council and social housing from the 1920s to the present day. You're welcome to listen, and to contribute, to the telling of a history about Sheffield social housing.
The walk will last around 90 minutes and will end at the Crucible.
Bring tram fare, and wear comfortable walking shoes or trainers. The route has descents but no steep or long ascents, and there are steps and stairs.
Sheffield Modern is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Supported by Site Gallery. Supported by City of Ideas funded through Arts Council England's Ambition For Excellence fund.
With funding and support from: Sheffield Hallam University, RIBA Yorkshire, Sheffield Society of Architects, Sheffield Town Trust, BDP, and David Mellor.
