Area Snobbery in Sheffield

Recommended Posts

With regards to Beauchief, as far as postal address is concerned, it extends up Bocking Lane and for a considerable distance along Westwick Road. Most people would consider this to be Greenhill.

In know people who live in Beighton and say its Sothall.

 

I was born in Beighton (longer ago than i care to remember) and Sothall was where the swings were at the bottom of Robin Lane, together with Hancock's chippie and the Co-op.

"W"

is a nice place, not too much agro, but a fairly nice place.

"W" is better than some places in South Yorks because it has residents who want it to be nice.

Some places ( ?) want their neighbourhood to be "PHAT"

Why??

I worked in an office where you entered a postcode onto the computer and it would automatically pick up the address so Totley and Hathersage would be Sheffield.

 

I used to get a regular ear bashing from clients who wanted their address changing to Via Sheffield or Via Sheffield Sorting Office or even to remove the Sheffield bit completely :roll:

 

Easily done but they were so snotty about it I used to tell them "Computer says no!" :hihi:
