The Hall of Waltheof

Thanks Bayleaf,

I will look at the book, meantime, I quote -

“The most obvious feature of the medieval park was that which defined its shape, the park pale. As surviving earthworks they normally appear as banks with a broad internal ditch".

My previous point, parks were enclosed? I have been given a copy of the "Harrison map" which shows a defined area. Stannington wood shows a none - defined boundary

The acreage was exact as well

What do you reckon to this idea, area marked in red?

I think the distinction shows up on the map, the park has, as you say, a clearly defined boundary, whereas Stannington Wood hasn't, and is marked as common land. The park is reserved for the lord of the manor or other owner, the Wood is used by others with commoners rights to wood, grazing etc.

I don't know if this adds anything useful;

If you’re going into Local Studies to look up the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal for the maps, you might like to have a look at the same journal, volume 4 p109-20, there’s an article by David Hey on the development of the Parks at Tankersley and Wortley.

Not having a deal of luck finding the Scurfield maps etc.

I have found the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal Vol 4 but obviously the wrong one but could not find an alternative before running out of time. Was it Vol 4 for the maps or is this another volume?

Also the "Hall of Waltheof" was removed for repair. I notice there is now reprint, anyone seen it?

I am still searching for the Mr Derby mentioned by Addy but too little to go on so far. He is not in any of the who,s who type books.

thanks

Sorry for any confusion Mike. The vol 4 reference was to the David Hey article. The reference for the article by Scurfield with the maps is

Scurfield, G (1986) 17th Century Sheffield and its environs, Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, vol 58, pages 147-171

Hello all,

This is a bit of a long shot given the time lapse on this topic! What are anyone's thoughts on Liberty Hill? I wondered if the name suggested it might be under a regalian right from, perhaps, Beauchief Abbey? It would be interesting to know given the proximity of a possible hall.

Going waaaay back here to this map - and this is speculation so don't know if it adds to identification. 

I also tried to position the Mannor house mentioned by Addy - and I wonder, is it possible that Wellhouse Farm (and its Cruck Barn) is a possible location of "The Mannor House" One field up from your Pin towards Nethergate - still on the Racker way.

The farm at your Pin (current building) isn't as old, but could be built on an older building.   Given Well houses proximity to the Well, one would logically think an older building would be located closer to the source of water?

Furthermore - There is Dendochronology on Well House dating timbers to 1550s

Thanks Gramps. I took the liberty of overlaying the 1854 map on to a modern satellite photo and marking the places mentioned by Addy in the final chapter.
