Bridgehouses

Used to be on the ancient route from Rotherham/Templeborough towards the Roman Fort at Navio and then on to Buxton picking up the saltways and Roman route.

The route went over Wincobank Hill, Grimesthorpe, Brunswick Road, Champs Hill (remember that name) to Bridgehouses where it forded the Don.

Then through West Bar, Western Bank, Lydgate, Sandygate, Stanage and onwards.

The route bypassed the Sheffield area keeping to the ridges as it was usually swampy in the valley

Hollow Meadows was at one time small hospital for the 'Mentally Subnormal' as they were described back in the 60's.
