Rivelin Valley

Somewhere I used to go occasionally as a child and could only remember snatches of, since living nearer, it’s somewhere I’ve become more familiar with.  It’s such a pretty place, full of wildlife, streams, waterfalls and parts that look like a fairytale kingdom (when not full of people tearing past on bikes or walking their dogs, that is!).  I love that I can walk for twenty minutes in one direction from my house and be in the city centre…

…twenty minutes in the opposite direction finds you here…

The Hole In The Road

 

The Hole in the Road.

All long-term Sheffielders remember this concrete oddity – equally loved and hated, it was a peculiar, unique feature in Sheffield City Centre, filled in to make way for the coming of the Supertram.  Dark, smelly, but full of character and, of course, the infamous fish…

Based in Sheffield, I love film, comics, everything kitsch, weird, 1950s-60s, horror, sci-fi, and creative projects: playing music, sewing, painting, occasional DJ-ing. Creative focus at present is on my indie art-rock band Flying Wing and I doodle cartoon diary blog posts inbetween other stuff.www.missytassles.wordpress.com www.flying-wing.co.uk www.thegirlnextdoortou.wordpress.com
