There was a recent article about this on NowThen Magazine. Check the online version. My money's on Hagg Hill but the steepest one within 2 miles of the centre is Blake Street IMO

Hagg Hill (not old Sheffield) gradient 17.1%.
Which Hagg Hill? The one that runs down from Crosspool to Rivelin Valley Road? That's always been in Sheffield, the original Sheffield boundary was the River Rivelin. See here.

Is hagg hill steeper than lodge lane?

 

I've had the 'pleasure' of running up both of them quite recently and would say that the first stretch of Hagg Hill from Rivelin Valley Road is steeper than the similar stretch of Lodge Lane from the A57, but after their first right hand bends, then Lodge Lane is marginally the steeper.

 

(Equally as knackered at the top of both, mind you!).

That is my "safe" route to work in the ice and snow:) I only ever use it in bad weather.

They have and on this page too but if you check previous posts the steepest is Hagg Hill based on gradients and I have driven up and down there, not for faint hearted

Next to the nursing home on Heeley there is a junction that is very very steep, but it's only about 100 yards of road, does that count? I bet a lot of gearboxes have been left behind on there though.

Not very long but Prospect Rd at Totley takes some beating.
