We have written many articles that have been published in Riddle magazinesearching for stories near home in Sheffield and around the world. We discover and write about manufacturers like the truly wonderful William Lennon, a boot manufacturer hidden away for over 100 years among the hills of the Peak District. 

It has been an absolute pleasure to gain an in-site into local companies like Rab, Locksley Distillery, Field cycles and Mamnick as well as further afield like Maserati and Lexus and a real privilege to interview the likes of rock star Andy Mackay, Roxy Music, and former pro-cyclist David Miller. 

We are always looking for new stories, please get in touch if you would like us to write a piece for your publication or if you have a suggestion for an article for Riddle magazine.
