Brighton Map

Brighton is a settlement 6 miles southeast of Sheffield’s city centre that has been designated as a historic township. Due to rapid growth, the village became a part of Sheffield city in 1967., and it was also transferred from Derbyshire to the newly formed South Yorkshire. Throughout the late 17th and early 19th centuries, the area was known for its edge tool production, with Thomas Staniforth & Co Sickle factory located nearby in Hackenthorpe. There are several schools in the former village, including Beighton Nursery & Infant School and Brook House Junior School. Today, the village has witnessed significant house construction; nevertheless, due to its location on the outskirts of Sheffield, it retains a rural environment with communities such as Eckington, Mosborough, Ridgeway, and Dronfield.
