Hello and Good Morning. It's bright and sunny again, I've a line of washing out, and I have made my bestest friend Carol a birthday card, now I have a few pictures to add to the blog, so come with me on a visit to Sheffield. I took my friend Crafty Janet along with me, we had a day out in the nuuuw wheeelz. Straight down the M180, M18, up the M1, off at the A630 and into the Park and Ride car park just off the roundabout at the bottom. Pay £2.50 to park, after we had worked out the touch screen machine, then hop onto a tram for the city centre, bus pass free ride, easy peasy.
We alighted at the Cathedral, a good place to start our bimble. Luckily they have some very nice toilets in there.
Next to the Crucible is this iconic building, The Lyceum Theatre. Looks like a wedding cake, I could eat it.
In the late 1950's the Lyceum was in financial difficulties, it closed in 1969. Planning permission was sought for it's demolition, but it was saved by a campaign by the Hallamshire Historic Buildings Society. Thank goodness, it would be a shame to lose this.information can be found at Wiki.
Next stop was the Winter Gardens. We ambled through cameras at the ready, sat and ate our sandwiches, marvelled at the structure, and took in the general ambiance of the place. It was a hive of activity, several groups of school children were being supervised by their teachers as they ate their lunch.
