In August 2011 we were fortunate enough to stay overnight in Sheffield so my husband could go to a football match. We spent a few hours exploring the city centre next day. The beautiful Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul was built in Saxon times originally as a parish church. It became a cathedral in 1914.
It is a beautiful building. Free entry, but you can leave a donation if you wish. Inside there are some lovely stain glass windows, some interesting tombs, especially the ones in the Shrewsbury Chapel which commerate the Earls of Shrewsbury.
There is also the Chapel of St George dedicated to the York and Lancaster regiment and displaying many of the regiments flags and a screen made from their bayonets and swords.
Interesting and well worth a visit if you happen to be in town.
