Sheffield's most northern suburb?

Recommended Posts

This has been bugging me for a while.

 

According to Wikipedia High Green is the northernmost suburb of Sheffield.

I would have thought Stocksbridge is further north......Does Stocksbridge not class as a suburb of Sheffield?

 

Also, out of interest, what are the most southern, western and eastern suburbs?

 

Regards

I'd deffo agree with Stocksbridge, i always thougth it was part of Barnsey tbh!

Would Barnsley be classed as a 'suburb of sheffield' i guess not, but if Sheffield was London it would.

 

I think Stocksbridge comes under Sheffield, whereas Penistone and Howbrook come under Barnsley.

 

Barnsley as a 'suburb of Sheffield'.....That would upset my mate from Barnsley. :hihi:

I wouldn't say Stocksbridge is a suburb at all, it's a village within the Sheffield postcode area.

I would've thought that for a place to be classed as a suburb it would need to be "connected" to the city centre by an unbroken chain of areas.

(if that makes sense?)

If a suburb is merely a residential part of a city and its environs then I'd suggest Crow Edge is a lot further North than Stocksbridge, has the mail delivered from Sheffield and its post box emptied by Royal Mail vans from Sheffield.
