Crookes Map

Crookes is a suburb of Sheffield, located about 1.5 miles west of the city centre. It is bounded to the south by Broomhill, to the east by Walkley and Crookesmoor, and to the north by open farmland surrounding the river Rivelin. The name of the suburb is derived from the Old Norse word „Krkor”, which implies a nook or corner of land. Crookes’ central business district is centred on Crookes Road, which runs through the suburb until becoming Northfield Road at its northern terminus. Crookes is home to the majority of the shops and enterprises, including a Cooperative, a Sainsbury’s, and a number of small local shops. Crookes becomes Crookes Road at its southern end, where it connects to Broomhill. St Thomas’ Church on Nairn Street and Crookes Working Men’s Club on Mulehouse Road are both popular establishments.
