Kevin

Hello, my name is Kevin. I'm a retired police sergeant, I also have experience working within the criminal justice system at the Sheffield Combined and Family Courts.. As a police officer I spent a number of years 'pounding the beat' in Sheffield city centre. I also worked as a shift and custody sergeant. I grew to be fascinated with Sheffield's history of people and places .especially the more 'dark' side of that history. I have organised walking tours for my colleagues at the courts and now I have fully retired I have designed this tour. I'm a born and bred 'Sheffielder', a lover of Guinness and a passionate Sheffield Wednesday supporter. So, come and join me on the beat, lets walk and talk together as we open up some of Sheffield's forgotten past. Looking forward to meeting you.

As residents of Sheffield we felt we learnt something new about familar land marks and enjoyed the historical facts. Made all the better by a sunny day.

A very kind review Gary, thank you. It's always enjoyable to 'open the eyes' of local people to some of Sheffield's at times forgotten history. A warm sunny day also makes it more enjoyable 😀.

This tour was mainly about Sheffield's history in respect of 'Law, Disorder, Murder and Mayhem'.Kevin knew his subject well and gave entertaining anecdotes about specific characters who stood out as the city's former bad boys. The tour also covered other interesting snippets about the city's history, eg. their rather unique approach to getting the whole community involved in periodically cleaning the streets. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Response from Kevin
Wow, what an excellent review Judith, very kind of you, thank you. I'm so glad you both obviously enjoyed the tour finding it extremely interesting.
