Sheffield was once known as “Steel City” because its principal export was steel. You can still find items of cutlery stamped with “Made in Sheffield”. While this industry has declined, though, the city has proven to have a backbone made of the same material, shifting smoothly into a service-led economy and still proving one of the stronger economic powers in the north of England.
