In August 1936 Sheffield citizens who, as part of the slum clearance programme, were moving into the new Sheffield council estates were asked to take part in a referendum. They were offered the opportunity to vote as to whether they wanted public houses to be built on their estate. In favour were: Arbourthorne, Manor, Shiregreen, Woodthorpe and Wybourn. Against were: High Wincobank, Longley and Norwood, Stubbin and Brushes and Wisewood.
