Mike Higginbottom runs heritage bus tours in collaboration with the South Yorkshire Transport Museum to provide a nostalgia experience which gives a top deck view of Sheffield’s historic places, with a detailed commentary and opportunities to visit unexpected sites of interest.
Riding in the sort of vehicle that replaced the trams in the 1950s is itself an experience because buses have changed so much in half a century.
From the upper deck there’s a grandstand view, on and off the main roads, of industrial sites, schools, pubs, places of worship and sites associated with crimes, riots and the Blitz.
The next Bus Ride Round Attercliffe takes place on Father’s Day, Sunday June 18th 2023, departing from the Penny Black, Pond Hill, next to Sheffield Interchange, promptly at 2.00pm.
The itinerary includes visits to locations that illustrate the dramatic changes that have taken place in the Lower Don Valley – Carbrook Hall (c1620), the Zion Graveyard (opened 1805) and (subject to confirmation) the English Institute of Sport (2003).
