Dungworth map

Dungworth is a hamlet in Bradfield civil parish, west of Sheffield. The village’s name is also used as a surname; in 1323, a ‘Dungworth’ was recorded living in the neighbouring village of Storrs. Around the late twentieth century, the surname’s English occurrences remained concentrated in the Sheffield area. Bradfield Dungworth School is a primary school in the village, while the Royal Hotel is a public house. The village tavern has always been a focal point of village life; in the 1920s, games of Knurr and Spell were played, and there were clubs for fishing, running, football, and cricket. For nearly 200 years, folks have performed local tunes at the tavern throughout the Christmas season.
