of Stocksbridge & District

My book on the history of Stocksbridge public houses was published on the 3rd October 2020.  It contains stories from public houses past and present from their early days until the eve of World War Two and includes tales from the pubs in and around the South Yorkshire town of Stocksbridge and the nearby villages of Bolsterstone, Deepcar, Green Moor, Hunshelf and Wigtwizzle.  It is available direct from Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions here(modern pubs and Working Men’s Clubs are not included.)

It was not possible to include lots of photographs in the book because of print limitations, and so I have added all those I have collected so far to this website. 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed photographs so far - please get in touch if you have any that you think would be of interest to others.
