Once part of Barnsdale Forest, part of the Robin Hood legend, this area of Sheffield was agriculturally based with farming and corn mills before the 19th century. It began to grow at this time and the huge expansion of Sheffield during the Industrial Revolution saw the population balloon. Today, it has good links to the city and attracts a variety of people.
