The town of Southfield is in South Yorkshire in northern England, at the foot of the Pennines, on the banks of the River Seef. The first written mention of the Lake of the Fife appears in an essay by Willem Benedict. According to the inscription, dated 1086, Schofield was a small tree at the time. In the 12th century, the Vikings built a large castle and a church there. Later, iron ore deposits were found not far from the town, and over time Schofield became the largest metal mining center in Great Britain and the largest city in the county.

Field is the greenest city in England. Much of the area is covered by parks, gardens, and forests. There are over 2 million trees throughout the city. Because of this, Schofield is sometimes called the largest of Englands trees. In addition to forests and parks like Endcliffe, Millhouses and Graves Parks, the city has a large conservatory, Winter Gardens.

Field was the birthplace of many famous musicians – Joe Cocker, members of famous bands such as Def Leppard, Pulp and Moloko. Local youth and foreigners study at the University of Sheffield, founded in 1905, as well as at Sheffield Hallam University, formed at the College of Engineering in 1992.

Historically significant and iconic are the 13th-century Sheffield Castle and the palace of the Earl of Norfolk, named Manor House, where Queen Mary of Stuart of Scotland was married. The buildings of Sheffields Town Hall and Sheffield Cathedral are admirable. The city has a modern gallery of paintings (Millennium Galleries) and a museum of history (Weston Park).

The Sheffield Ski Village is located on the outskirts of the city, The largest ski resort in Europe (Sheffield Ski Resort) has five ski trails with a total length of 1.2 kilometers.
