Ridgeway is a north Derbyshire village roughly half way between Gleadless Townend (which is in Sheffield) and Mosborough (formerly Derbyshire before 1967, but now Sheffield) so as such it is less than a mile south of the City southest border.

Me, Steve, Stuart, Vox and quite a few others from this side of town will know it well.

Particularly it's famous old pub, https://www.oldenglishinns.co.uk/our-locations/the-phoenix-ridgeway

I know Gleadless Town End reasonably well, Aunt/Uncle lived there for about the last 40+ years, I could find Ford via a back lane, Mosborough - not a clue - may as well be on Mars.

Thanks for the map vox, that should make it clear to Richard where Ridgeway is.

He thinks Mosbrough is on Mars :blink:

So he obviously needs a more accurate and reliable map.

These bloomin' North Sheffielders, from their Ivory towers, thinking Sheffield finishes at Park hill!

Some North Sheffielders think Sheffield finishes further north than that! :o

Some of them have a "there is nothing south of the Don" sort of mentality.
