Districts of Darnall ward

Attercliffe

Attercliffe (grid reference SK378887 ) is an industrial suburb of northeast Sheffield.

Attercliffe stretches from the edge of the city centre of Sheffield to Carbrook.

Back in the 1880s, the district was populated by small terraced houses and a shopping area which stretched for over 3 miles along Attercliffe Road, Attercliffe Common and Sheffield Road towards Tinsley.

Remnants of this era still stand with the John Banner building, an early multi floor department store located on Attercliffe Road. Other buildings include the Adelphi cinema, Attercliffe Baths, Burton Building, Carbrook Hall and Attercliffe Church - a small building easy to miss tucked back from the main road into the city centre.

As for industry, Tinsley Wire and many other steelworks and light industrial companies survived alongside residential and small retail.

During the December 1940 a German bombing campaign devastated the city centre of Sheffield. Attercliffe was also badly destroyed with destruction from the city centre across to Tinsley canal locks. It took until the 1990s rebuilding of the old residential area to re-use the former area of the district affected by this historic incident.

Traditional areas of Attercliffe now house an interesting mix of old established industry, Adult stores, carpet warehouses and discount stores - including the old John Banner building. Towards the east end of Attercliffe, the area has been regenerated with medium-sized business and a few remaining large steelworks.
