Stannington Local History Group
History and formation of the Group
Stannington still has the feel of being a village despite the fact that it is now joined both administratively and physically to the City of Sheffield.
Stannington Village starts towards the top of the hill at the old West Riding boundry at the junction of Stannington and Oldfield road by the Sportsman Public house.
Stannington has always been a strong community, as it still is today. In the past as a hill village, it was quite remote and could often be cut off by snow and bad weather in the winters.
In the early part of the twentieth century and, even earlier, the churches, chapels and public houses all provided the villagers with plenty of social and sporting activities.
Today many associations meet and activities take place in the village hall, Lomas Hall.
Formed in 1962.
