Burngreave Voices

  Montage of images from the Burngrave Voices website.

Burngreave Voices is a community heritage project that aims to bring to life and celebrate the history of the area through the stories of Burngreave residents.

This website focuses on the neighbourhood of Burngreave in Sheffield, England. It provides information about the history of the area and some of the interesting local places. Most importantly, however, it's about the people who live here, and the stories they tell of their lives, collected by the Burngreave Voices project.

There are over 90 memories and stories on this site from past and present residents. You can read and listen to these stories in the section headed People. You can also add new stories to the collection using the Your Memories.

Explore some of the interesting places in Burngreave in the section on Places.

Find out about the history of the area and how it came to be part of Sheffield, in history pages.

Find out about some of the activities organised by the Burngreave Voices project, from 2004 to 2007 in the section About the project.

You can use a map to move between the stories.
