The Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation linked industrial South Yorkshire, including Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster, with the ports of Hull and Goole. It played a major part in the export of coal from the many collieries in the region and the import of grain, timber, steel and more general cargo. From the improvements around Sheffield at the end of the nineteenth century, through neglect during the First World War, public ownership and the expensive modernisation scheme of the 1980s, as well as the triumphs and failures of private enterprise, The Sheffield & South Yorkshire Navigation documents the history and development of the waterway. Included in this volume in a diverse collection of over 200 images of the navigation, its traffic, and of the surrounding area, depicting the historical and present influences of the traditional industries of the area, from the South Yorkshire coalfields to steelmaking and glass blowing.
