We invite you to join us to explore the roots of communities both old and new in Netherthorpe, Upperthorpe, Kelham Island and Neepsend.

A collaboration between the University of Sheffield, Zest, Ecus Ltd, KINCA & Kelham Island Museum.

By contributing to our interactive Roots and Futures app you will help us explore the physical roots of the Netherthorpe, Upperthorpe, Kelham Island and Neepsend areas, the buildings and objects that survive from the past and the archaeological remains underfoot.

Follow our Historic Buildings Trail, learn what lies beneath your feet and explore your part of Sheffield through the ages. Then contribute your own photos and stories using our Your Sheffield Map.
