TALES about pigeon racing, working lives long since gone, and a forgotten cemetery will be captured as part of a new Sheffield community project.

The Art in the Park group - based at Norfolk Park – has received a £9,000 Lottery grant to fund Unregistered, which will look at the history of communities and industry in the Parkwood Springs and Cuthbert Bank areas.

The research is part of the All Our Stories project, a national initiative inspired by the BBC2 series The Great British Story.

Unregistered will bring local people together to discover and share over 600 years of history from the sites and reimagine them for the future, by working with professional artists and writers.

There are also opportunities for volunteers to get involved in the research, with free training provided.
