Stocksbridge - near Sheffield

 

Welcome to Stocksbridge

Stocksbridge is situated about 12 miles North west of Sheffield, deep in the Pennine Hills.

There are numerous explanations on how Stocksbridge got its name. One is that it derives from the Saxon and means literally Tree bridge or wooden bridge. Another explanation as to the naming of Stocksbridge comes from a person called John Stocks who lived at Stocks Farm. When the town was finally developed it took the name of Stocksbridge.

Stocksbridge still has a thriving local community and continues to grow with new estates being built. However it still remains an essentially village community.

Stocksbridge is probably more famous these days for it by-pass. Tales of Ghouls and Ghosts and a prime time Michael Aspel programme have brought notoriety to the road.
