Could be within 4 to 5 miles of each other I would have thought.

In a straight line yep, but driving you have to go from ridgeway through ford, marsh lane, towards apperknowle and on to dronfield, far from close by.

The Edge

Home of Thomas Rawson Barker, White lead &c. manufacturer (1849).

I'm none the wiser either

White lead was used in paint.

The Edge - I can't find any mention but I think it was the Endcliffe area.

(Nether Edge, Brincliffe Edge) ??

Just came across 'The Edge' it is named on a 1882 map,

as was 'Edge End' (1854) with the buildings visible on an 1854 map.

1882

Good guess vox.

+ marks the area

We normally apply the term "Cricket Ball test" to places you could chuck a cricket ball at from the Parish Church, for this one I've invented the "spit test" ... or the "falling over dead-drunk test" !

Little Hill (1860's)

Little Hill, Townhead Street to Campo Lane.

Wasn't it still called Little Hill when the Sheffield Rep Theatre (Playhouse) was located on it ?

Possible typo for Apperknowle near Dronfield? (Link) (Info dated 1999. Had a look on Google Street view and can't see it?)

On some of the addresses on my pubs data it also says Apperknowle, UNSTONE.

I'm still no wiser but I wouldn't have thought it to be Sheffield.

No, neither Apperknowle nor Unstone are in Sheffield.

Are you working from memory or Google Earth evidence Steve? If the latter I see what you mean, small estate built on what could very well be a large carpark, with one older stone built building?
