Meadowhall Shopping Centre research guide

Meadowhall Shopping centre opened in September 1990 on the site of the demolished East Hecla Works of Hadfields Ltd. At the time it was the second largest shopping centre in the UK. The site, in the Lower Don Valley, was chosen to help regenerate Sheffield’s industrial east end following the major changes in the steel and manufacturing industries in the late 1970s and early 1980s which saw many firms close, unemployment rise and land left unused and derelict.
