Work on our new build is ongoing. Our new windows are now in; all of the four old ones have been removed. Plastering is done. The kitchen is almost complete and tiling is in progress in the toilets.  There is still work to do on making good the floors. Expect some noise and disturbance! The toilets are out of action right now; you’ll be diverted to the Portaloos in the back yard.

A good way to keep up to date with what’s going on is to subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter. More info here.

Loxley: Wanderings in a Curious Valley

Friday 17 March
Loxley: Wanderings in a Curious Valley

Having become ‘locked down’ to within a few miles of his Sheffield home, author Peter Machan spent a solitary year exploring the nearby Loxley Valley and discovered the surprising ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ of diverse landscapes, historical characters, tragic and dramatic events, unusual occupations, perplexing ruins and unique folk tales and traditions that make this area so fascinating. Peter shows that, even on our own doorstep and within the boundary of one of the country’s major cities, there are worlds to explore and untold stories to tell.

Doors open / refreshments at 7.00pm. Talk starts 7.30.

Tickets £5 available from library reception or online at greenhill.bookwhen.com
