Life in Sheffield - areas to choose or avoid.

#1
Moving soon and will probably be living in Sheffield.

What areas are best avoided and what areas are preferable in terms of crime and delinquency?

I've seen a suitable property in the Walkley area (S6) but have no idea what the area is like.

Any suggestions?

Why not come to the more cosmopolitan Barnsley? Property will be cheaper and it's only short drive or bus/train ride.

Welcome to Barnsley. Please put your watches back 100 years.

Best areas are west of the centre, such as Crookes and Walkley. Hillsborough is not too bad these days and has tram links. As above, Manor and Pitsmoor/Burngreave (S3) is a bit rough.

Avoid Barnsley like the plague, they have webbed feet and touch their cousins.

Sheffields fine, i live in a good area on the outskirts of the city, loads of woods and countrside.

Avoid Attercliffe like the plague - the River Don used to turn orange there with all the crap being pumped into it from the steelworks (when they still made steel in Sheffield). Hillsborough of course is sacred ground & you should visit every Saturday when there's a home game on :wink:

I have lived in Sheffield for 7 years now born and bred in North Yorkshire. Used to live off Chesterfield Road Sheffield 8 just round the corner from the Everest Indian restraurant.

Now live opposite Park Hill Flats. I do like Sheffield plenty to do, good tram links, people can be freindly as stated avoid Pitsmoor, Manor Top also the Markets plenty of knuckle scrappers about during the day time.

Have a good freind who lives on Manor Top so not all bad

Walkley is good area....not to scare you though they did have a murder there a few years ago.

As stated avoid Attercliffe unless you are in to sauna's

The odd murder isn't as concerning as regular brawls, muggings and burglaries in my view. sounds like it should be ok.

Ta!
