Did you know Sheffield is the birthplace of association football?  Download the app to your smartphone and discover the places and people that shaped football as we know it today.

The route begins in Heeley and visits the city centre before concluding at Highfield Library.

The app includes audio commentary so you can listen as you walk the 4.7 mile route and is full of historic photographs and maps giving you a sense of Sheffield as a place in the 19th century.

As you reach key points along the walk, content in the app will be triggered automatically, explaining Sheffield’s unique role in the creation of the world’s most popular sport.

Alternatively download at home and enjoy in your armchair.
