Districts of Richmond Ward
Richmond grid reference is a suburb of eastern Sheffield.
Richmond was historically a small settlement consisting of a few cottages and Richmond Hall Farm, built in 1668 and demolished in 1966. Gateposts from the farm, which may have originally flanked an entrance to Sheffield Park, can still be seen amidst a housing estate dating from the late 1960s.
Four Lane Ends
Built in the 1930s, Woodthorpe (grid reference ) lies to the east of Intake. It has two pubs, the "High Noon" and "The Springwood", and also has a primary school (Woodthorpe), which was rebuilt in September 2005. However now "The Springwood" has closed down due to unpopular demand in the area and it is now abandoned and boarded up.
