22nd February, Sheffield

It seems 22nd February is a historic Sheffield day.

Firstly 200years ago on 22nd February 1819 the first canal boats travelled down the new Sheffield canal. To celebrate there is events in Victoria Quays from 11am.


Secondarily, 75 years ago on 22nd February 1944 a plane travelling back from Denmark crashed in Endcliffe Park. Due to avoiding boys playing on the grass and instead crashing into trees tragically killing the crews. One of the boys who’s life was saved is now 82 and he campaigned for the event to be commentated. At about 8.45am on 22nd February there will be a fly pass Ecclesall road, which is being shown live on BBC 1.
