In an age when profit seems to be the only thing that matters, it is a relief to read about the life’s work of a true Sheffielder in The Ken Hawley Experience.
Derek Bateson has put Ken’s knowledge and experience into a beautifully illustrated book, tying it in with the Hawley Collection at Kelham Island.
The book should be compulsory reading for everyone in the DIY business and anyone interested in the history of Sheffield. Regrettably, there are those in local government who believe that progress can only be made by downgrading or demolishing the past.
