In Sheffield we love a good celebration, and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a tree covered in baubles, tinsel and twinkly lights – and possibly dropping pine needles everywhere if you go for the real thing.
So here, we’re having a look back at Christmas trees past in the city. One tiny tree bought at Woolie’s is even famous as the oldest in the country. It’s 101 years old this year.
