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

Heritage, Pubs

About Dave Pickersgill

Dave has been a CAMRA member since the 1970s and has worked at almost 40 Sheffield CAMRA festivals, plus a fair number of others. He is Brewery Liaison Officer (BLO) for Abbeydale, Blue Bee, Bradfield and Loxley. A member of the National Pub Heritage Group, he leads on planning and pub heritage issues. He also edited the Sheffield's Real Heritage Pubs book, for which downloads vastly exceeded expectations. The hard copy was available in October 2018 and was a sell-out. The third edition is available as a free download. Alongside Paul Crofts, Dave was co-local organiser for the 2021 National CAMRA Members’ Weekend, AGM & Conference which was planned to be held at Sheffield City Hall on 16-18 April - now cancelled. We hope to see you at a future Members' Weekend in Sheffield.
