Districts of Manor Castle ward

Manor

Manor (grid reference SK387862 ) is a large low-rise housing estate in eastern Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. It is divided into Manor Park, Upper and Lower Manor, and Manor Top.

Until the 1930s, the area was mostly rural, with housing only along the main roads. The estate was started during the 1930s as a garden city type development, to alleviate overcrowding in central Sheffield. However, unlike true garden cities, places of work were not included in the scheme, although nearby Darnall and Attercliffe had some industry.

Manor is named for Sheffield Manor and is adjacent to Manor Park. Manor Top is now served by the Sheffield Supertram. Large areas of the estate were demolished, and in some cases rebuilt with private funding, from the late 1990s onwards.

Wybourn

Wybourn (grid reference SK373871 ) is a council estate, built in the 1920s, lying north of Manor Park and east of Park Hill. In the north west of the district lies Hyde Park, originally a larger version of Park Hill, but since reduced in scale with the demolition of some blocks and the recladding and alteration of circulation elsewhere.

Park Hill

Park Hill (grid reference SK364875 ) is the name of the district in which the Park Hill flats are sited. The name relates to the deer park attached to Sheffield Manor, the remnant of which is now known as Norfolk Park.

The Reverend and the Makers song "Heavyweight Champion of the World" includes the line "At school he used to dream about being Bruce Lee/But the need for chops in Manor Top ain't all that great you see".
