Sheffield was a centre of blade production since the 14th century. By 1600, Sheffield became the biggest producer of cutlery outside of London. Today, in the city centre, the Millennium Gallery shows metalwork and art from Sheffield and around the world (S1 2PP).
It adjoins the Winter Garden, a large temperate glasshouse filled with plants (S1 2LH). Kelham Island Museum covers the city’s industrial heritage (S3 8SA). The nearby countryside is part of Peak District National Park, characterised by moorland and rocky ridges (S33 8WS).

Divorce and splitting assets
Everyone has to move forwards and it could be that the family home has to be sold to create two new separate homes. House buying and selling is stressful enough, but add that to a separation and blood pressure levels are likely to go through the roof! All parties are anxious and afraid about how the future is going to pan out. Assets have to be split; furniture, family heirlooms. Everything right down to who is going to have the cutlery.
It’s an extremely tough period in even the most resilient person’s life; it is certainly not weak to ask for professional help if required. In fact, maybe everyone should get counselling or coaching through this most horrendous time, to keep their feet on the ground. Tempers are frayed and small issues can become ginormous. People who have been through the process talk about turning to alcohol, cigarettes or serial dating for sex, as a crutch to get them through. Working with a therapist can help people to understand that what is happening right now is not going to last forever. It is just a phase in life and part of the journey to arrive in a better place.
When the bigger issues, such as children and the courts are finalised, life can seem a very quiet and drama free place. It can be very difficult to see that you will ever be the happy co-parent. It can be almost too calm when the children are not around and some people suffer symptoms similar to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD). The term “Divorce Stress Syndrome” is fast becoming a familiar term. Feeling tired or hopeless, no longer enjoying anything in life and even thoughts of suicide can indicate serious depression issues.
The stress of a separation can also manifest itself in anxiety, panic attacks, anger or substance abuse. Few people realise that depression is common with PTSD, which many usually believe only happens to people in combat situations or who have experienced violent crime and the suchlike. Something like a life-changing divorce can in fact lead into PTSD and in the shadows of this is Depression. It is very important to seek medical advice if you believe that yourself, or someone you know may be suffering from PTSD or Depression.
