The Watch Tower at Bradfield

Sheffield History

Recommended Posts


St Nicholas Churchyard - Bradfield

The Watch House at High Bradfield was built in 1745 as a place from which to guard newly buried bodies (from bodysnatchers) in the churchyard of St. Nicholas, Church. There are apparently only two or three of this type of building still in existence in the country. This description was taken from the book "Around Bradfield, Loxley & Hillsborough" by Malcolm Nunn, which shows an early photo of the Watch House.
