Sheffield shines in use of heritage assets

Sheffield has risen above Leeds and Manchester in a list of the cities making best use of their heritage assets. Rising 23 places in the ‘core cities’ table of the Heritage Index, the city now ranks third among areas that are best at using heritage to create a distinctive identity and those which could do better. The table, put together by the RSA and the Heritage Lottery Fund, combines more than 120 factors, such as historic buildings and events and activities. First of the core cities this year was Bristol and second was Liverpool. Sheffield Live! reporter Azz Mohammed spoke to Jon Bradley, chair of Joined Up Sheffield.
