In its early history change was barely perceptible, but from the middle of the eighteenth century the Valleys great industrial period began, bringing with it huge changes and prosperity. The 1980s saw a catastrophic collapse of the valleys industrial base, leading to dereliction, unemployment and despair. The creation of the Sheffield Development Corporation in 1988 led to the wholesale regeneration of the Lower Don Valley, and this book is being published as a tribute to the Development Corporation for its leading role in the transformation of the Valley and the restoration of the areas confidence and spirit.
