 In this Archive section of the website you will find a brief history of each of the locations, which we the Society define here as the "Stocksbridge & District".

The selection of the areas covered is in no way based on Parochial or indeed any other boundaries.

Along side a large collection of Photographs, we are delighted to make available for viewing, a set of the Joseph Kenworthy published Handbooks, and a set of the Fox Magazines, which were issued by the management of the local Steelworks, between the years of 1946 and 1966.

The Kenworthy Handbooks and Fox Magazines contain articles documenting and describing many of the industries and events relating to our past.

Industries such as the mining of Coal, Lead, Clay, Ganister and others, for the convenience of visitors wishing to study specific subjects we have produce Inventories of the material that we have available.

An Inventory of articles featured in the Fox Magazines and the Kenworthy Handbooks can be found as part of their relevant page within the Website.

An Inventory of other articles which we have available can be found in the “Other Material Sources” section and copies of the Society Newsletters produced from 1992 to the present day can be found by clicking on the "Stocksbridge & District History Society" tab located at the top of each page.

Our "Features" section includes a number of chosen topics which give an insight into the rich heritage of this pleasant and beautiful location.

The "Multi-media" section contains a number of Video presentations and Picture Slide-shows, which we hope you will find both informative and entertaining.

As we state many times throughout the pages of this site, this is only a selection of the material we have available, there is without doubt much more to follow.

The Stocksbridge Library has a section on Local History with more material available than can be displayed on this site.

Should you be interested in something specific and you can't locate it within these pages then Contact Us we will be pleased to help if we can.
