Anyone here from Attercliffe? in Sheffield History & Expats Posted April 10, 2007 My family originated from Attercliffe and Darnall. The Graysons and Artliff's are my mums side and the Barkers are my dad's side. My Grandpa Grayson worked in the steel works in the Attercliffe area for years and years and he used to tell some awesome stories. The local pub was actually his 'office' and they would telephone him there if they need his crew for a job on the furnaces. My Grandpa Barker worked in a factory too and I remember vaguely there was a massive gas explosion there, maybe 35 yrs ago.
