Districts of Walkley ward


Walkley (grid reference ) is a suburb in the north west of Sheffield in England. It lies north-east of Crookes and south of Hillsborough.


Netherthorpe (grid reference ) is a council estate lying south-east of the Ponderosa open space. Originally an area of working-class Victorian terraces, it was reconstructed in the 1960s as an area of tower blocks and medium-rise flats with a few houses. In the late 1990s the tower blocks were reclad and many of the other flats demolished and replaced by modern housing.


Upperthorpe (infirmary (now offices) and a few houses survive. Construction continued, with many large Victorian houses and a car-free late-20th-century housing estate surviving. The Kelvin Flats were a landmark in the area, of similar design to now listed Park Hill, but were demolished in the early 1990s. The area is served by the Infirmary Road Sheffield Supertram stop.


Part of the industrial suburb of Neepsend which lies on the eastern side of the River Don is in the Walkley electoral ward.
