Grenoside Map

The name Grenoside is derived from the Anglo-Saxon language. Grenoside, which was originally mentioned as Gravenhou in the fourteenth century, is made composed of several components. Gren is derived from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) graefan, which means quarry, ‘o’ from the Old Norse haugr, which means hill, and the contemporary term side, which alludes to a quarried hillside. The Grenoside Sword Dance, which dates back to the 1750s, is an important mid-winter event for the community. It is traditionally performed in Main Street on Boxing Day mornings. On Main Street, there is an Anglican church, St Mark’s Church, Grenoside, a Methodist church on Norfolk Hill, and St Thomas More Catholic Primary School on Creswick Lane. In 2006, the Primary School moved from the north side of Norfolk Hill to a new structure to the south of the road. The previous baby facility on the north side of the road is currently in a state of disrepair. The Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham manages a section of Greno Woods as a nature reserve.
