Sharrow  West Riding


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Sharrow like this:

SHARROW-HEAD, Sharrow-Moor, and Sharrow-Vale, three hamlets in Sheffield parish, W. R. Yorkshire; 3 miles S W of Sheffield. A church was built here in 1869, at a cost of about £5, 600.

The name "Sharrow" is not on the New Popular map, and can only barely be made out on the First Series, but is clearly marked on modern 1:25,000 maps.
