Upper Midhope map

Upper Midhope is a settlement in the civil parish of Bradfield in the Sheffield borough. It is located on the outside of the Peak District National Park. According to the Conservation Area Appraisal, the hamlet dates back to at least the medieval period, with documents reaching back to 1227 and archaeological evidence dating back even farther. The community was a traditional rural settlement; because of its high elevation, sheep farming was the main economic activity; beekeeping was also practiced. In 1977, the village was designated as a protected area. There are several historic structures, including four listed structures from the 17th or 18th centuries: Town Head Cottages, and three cruck frame houses: Well Bank Farm, Manor Farmhouse, and Sycamore Cottage.
