Local Paper Offers Podcast Walking Tours

The Sheffield Star has recently started a new series of podcasts to act as an audio guide to the city.

Each podcast provides commentary on short walks taking in the industrial past of the Yorkshire metropolis.

The free podcasts are part of a joint project between the Star and the Furnace Trail, which produces books, audio and maps on Sheffield’s industrial heritage.

According to the Star: “Our audio lets you hear all about how the workers revolted, which ancient furnaces still remain and what lies behind the modern-day apartments as well as finding out what it was like to work in the industry in the words of those who actually did.”

[Disclosure: The Star is a Johnston Press publication.]
