On Sunday 2 June, Rob Hindle led a poetry walk criss-crossing the central Sheffield territory bounded by Lady’s Bridge, Kelham Island and the Wicker, with Rob reading and discussing poems inspired by one-way journeys made at different points in the city’s history (ranging from the Flood of 1864 to the bombing runs of the German Luftwaffe). In this excerpt, Rob introduces and reads the opening section of 'Atterliffe to the General Cemetery', which revisits the last transport of the Chartist Samuel Holberry in June 1842. Shot and edited by Brian Lewis.
