Every September, historic buildings are opened up to the public as part of Heritage Open Days. A number of different buildings in Sheffield have featured in this event. We have produced a guidance pack for Heritage Open Day participants who wish to research the historic background of their building or organisation.

The guide is available to download from the bottom of the page.

In addition you may wish to read our ‘Tracing the History of Your House’ booklet which is also available to download free from our website.

Contact us on archives@sheffield.gov.uk to find out more, book in advance or order archival materials.
