The Site

Clive Egginton

On a road where George Orwell stayed in 1936 to research The Road to Wigan Pier, commenting that Sheffield could justly claim to be called the ugliest town in the old world, you will find The Site. It is inhabited by a broad cross section of society, the kind you would find on any road in the city. There are scientists, ex-servicemen, care workers, builders and council employees. They just choose, for a variety of reasons, to live beyond what others may consider normal. I have been welcomed with no suspicion or prejudice to tell their stories and save an aspect of Sheffield culture for the archive. My thanks go to Dom, 5 Hats, Helen, Terry, Mel, Adam, Clair, Norman, Poppy and Jack.
