Norfolk Heritage Park

Norfolk Heritage Park

Norfolk Heritage Park was one of the first municipal parks in the UK and opened in 1848 and Sheffield was given the park as a gift in 1910. The 28 acre park combined a country estate character with historic buildings and structures which have a deep cultural heritage. The main entrances are linked with tree line avenues.

Over the 20th Century,additional features were added to the park such as a children's playground, bowling green, football pitches, extra green space, a community centre etc.

Look out for The West End section with an overhead Lantern Window, The Nave, The Shrewsbury and Lady Chapels, The Chapel of the Holy Spirit and The Chapel of St George.
