Pub on the estate?

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.

We would be interested in any memories from this vote – please contact: pubheritage@sheffield.camra.org.uk
