About Us

News, articles and history about the village of Grenoside, Sheffield

The Grenoside and District Local History Group was formed in 1997, having started life as a local education class. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Grenoside and its surrounding area. The group’s aims are to hold events, collect material and publish information to stimulate the interest and knowledge of Grenoside.

We also encourage and support individuals in their own research as well as developing group research. As a group we are also interested in hearing from people who no longer live in the area but have memories, memorabilia and photos of the area they would be willing to share with us.

We meet every Tuesday at 10am – 12 noon between September and July, with the exception of school holidays, at the Grenoside Community Centre Lower Hall, Main St, Grenoside.

The current annual subscription is £25, or £45 for joint membership. Our meetings range from workshops, informal meetings and visiting speakers who cover a wide range of local and family history subjects.

We also have visits to places of historical interest; duration of approximately 3- 6 hours, for which there is an extra charge.

Membership: There is currently no waiting list for new members, so if you would like to find out more about us and our activities, please contact us
