Such is the life at this beautiful city of England. The flow of water in the rivers, the beautiful scenarios makes Sheffield a place to visit for its quietness and serenity and is hence known as the city of hills and rivers.
The city has more trees than encountered in any of the Europe which seems to be all the more commendable. Situated at the South Yorkshire, England, the city got its name because of the river Sheaf that runs through the city. There are also partner rivers flowing with Sheaf river namely, Don, Porter, Loxely, Rivelyn and Meersbrook.
The connectivity of the rivers together makes Sheffield known to its people. Well, the race for its fame doesnot just ends here as the city is also famous for the production of steel. Steel as all knows is the upmost reason for the infrastructure and the economic development of any country, any city.
In the 19th century Sheffield gained the world wide fame for the making of this hard and strengthening feature. Many innovations were developed locally which made crucible and stainless steel. And this was a core reason for the increase in its population in the Industrial revolution then.
Although an effort to keep the industry running, there seemed to be come a patch where Sheffield population was affected, because of the collapsed national coal industry nearby to the city. It was a dark patch in the lives of the city of hills. However, with every downfall comes a breakthrough-a rise in the development of the city.
And thus in the 21st century came in the re-development of Sheffield and all the neighbouring cities of UK. This re-development brought with it a great amount of steady growth economically ranging around 5% annually monetary increase, and bringing about yet again stability in the city. And lush greenery, and the birds chirping every where and not to forget the connectivity of the watercourse all this brought back life of the lost Sheffield city.
