The southernmost county in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, this area was the original industrial powerhouse of northern England. What wool was to West Yorkshire, steel was to South Yorkshire and as confluence of natural resources: coal, iron ore and water, it became the nucleus of the British iron and steel industries, from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Sheffield’s and Rotherham's furnaces and the coal pits of Barnsley and Doncaster may be long out of working order but the Victorian reminders remain; some the old steelworks and pit heads have been converted into museums and exhibition venues. The grand civic buildings that feature at the centre of Sheffield's city are testament to the ambitions of its 19th-century populace.
