Latest News Items

We have added a new article “An Ancient Lane In Hunshelf “ researched and written by Claire Pearson.

This article tells the history of Bramhall Lane not the football ground we hasten to add but a not too well-known location to the west end of Stocksbridge.

Bramhall Lane can be located on the right of Hunshelf Lane some one hundred yards up from the junction with Manchester Road.

The article can be viewed via this link.

Many thanks to Clair for this very interesting account of a period of our times past.
