For a city famously born from steel, there are few untouched metal works remaining. Portland Works, close to the city centre, provides a fantastic glimpse of how things used to be. Still inhabited by workshops and craft people, it is currently trying to rescue itself from developers - a great and admirable fight. Portland Works was the birthplace of stainless steel, so it's place in Sheffield's history is cemented.
