Hackenthorpe map

Hackenthorpe is a community 5 miles south of Sheffield’s city centre that is now designated as a historic township. During the 1950s, the settlement became a part of Sheffield city due to rapid growth. Throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the community was known for its steelmaking, with the Thomas Staniforth & Co Sickle factory located on Main Street. Hackenthorpe Hall, built in the 17th century, is another significant feature of the community. Today, the community has undergone tremendous expansion in terms of housing, but the historic sickle factory, estates, and post office remain as a reminder of the village’s industrial heritage.
