Parish in the County of West Riding of Yorkshire


The parish of Ecclesfield has to some extent been absorbed in the City of Sheffield, but in earlier times it consisted of the townships of Bradfield and Bradfield Urban (here grouped together as Bradfield), Ecclesfield and Ecclesfield Urban (grouped together as Ecclesfield), and (more recently) Stocksbridge. The limits for these townships follow the 6″ O.S. (as revised in 1901 for the rural areas and 1920–2 for the urban areas). The parish formerly included a township of Aldwark with Wheatcroft (180 supra , 252 infra ).
