Description

Once an independent village, Stannington is now part of bustling Sheffield, England's fourth largest city. Walking around Stannington, it is difficult to picture the solitary settlement it once was as it stood isolated on top of a ridge; this book of approximately 200 archive images offers a unique glimpse of the village and its area, as it used to be. Stannington has seen much change but a lot has been lost through its development. Most small local industries and family farms have disappeared and a serious decline of the larger refractory works has also taken place. In this book members of the Stannington Local History Group have combined their knowledge to paint a picture of this village's community spirit through changing times. "Around Stannington" offers a nostalgic and valuable record of the past and provides newcomers with an understanding of how the modern area has evolved.show more
