Skating at Devonshire Green

Skater Interview

In this video Nathan Black, a local skateboarder, takes us through his experience of skating in city centre spaces in Sheffield.

Nathan discusses having been moved on over the years and the places that have been provided by local council to replace these spaces.

If you are not familiar with Sheffield, we have created an online map to show you the local skate spots mentioned in the video.

In the next section, we’ll explore how adults play in their lives as Professor Richard Phillips, Chair in Human Geography, explores the concept of ‘serious play’.
