Clowne though. It’s not that far from Sheffield. And parts of Sheffield used to be in Derbyshire (hence Derbyshire Lane), a lot of the area south east of Meersbrook I think.
Phil just looking at the advert you know it's going to be shite but if you're desperate I'll nip down and get you a can in case they sell outIf only there was an irreverent Sheffield United Beer Blogger who wasn't still in Portugal after the UEFA Nations League, and about to travel to Italy for the UEFA U21 EUROs, who could taste this beer & give his/her considered opinion. I miss those days......
Er, yes and no.
You do know that London Road was never part of Dick Whittington's manor, don't you?
They make beers in collaboration with some Sheffield brewers though, like Sentinel (as was). Looks like a pretty good set up tbh. Wonder if Matty Lawton has owt to do with it? He’s from there.
I know a large chunk in Sheffield was previously part of Derbys thank you and I acknowledged that. The old Anglo Saxon boundary between Nortumbria and Mercia (to be conquered by Wessex), was the River Sheaf. Everything south of the Sheaf (pretty much running alongside present day Abbeydale Road until Heeley), was in Mercia/Wessex, whereas what we know as Yorkshire, was all in Nortumbria.Im currently researching the postal history of Derbyshire, and need some help on the post offices that are now in the southern suburbs of Sheffield. It is recorded that in the 20th century there were several boundary changes affecting the boundary between Sheffield (and thus Yorkshire) and Derbys...www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk
