Lost Pubs of Walkley
One of our new research topics is the ‘Lost (and Remaining) Pubs of Walkley.
Would you like to help research the history of the pubs of Walkley? Walkley Historians are forming this group to identify the names and locations of pubs, right from the earliest days to today.
We hope to produce a list of all of Walkley’s Victorian pubs, any earlier pubs, and their addresses so that we can map them all.
We would also like to find out any stories associated with each pub, from newspaper reports and trade directories, as well as more recent stories via asking longer-lived Walkley residents about their memories of each pub – e.g. what a pub was like inside, any notable regulars, notable publicans or distinct stories. If you have any stories please get in touch.
Our next Walkley Historians meeting is Tuesday 14th February, 7pm at St Mary’s Community Hall, South Road. Feel free to come along if researching pubs interests you!
We’ve found some great old photos of Walkley pubs on Picture Sheffield.
