Crosspool lies on the far west of Sheffield, along the A57 from Broomhill towards Manchester. It’s the last suburb of Sheffield before hitting the Peak District – a few minutes walk in fact. The area on the whole is quieter than most of Sheffield, parking here isn’t as problematic as surrounding areas such as Broomhill or Crookes. The main street in Crosspool is home to a small selection of shops and take-away restaurants. There’s a Post Office, Fish Bar and Fruit & Veg shop too. It’s only a couple of minutes drive or bus ride to get further into town to expand your restaurant choices, or equally, it’s not a great distance to get out to the Peak District for some great food and friendly pubs.

Crosspool itself is probably best known in the local area for the Crosspool Tavern, one of the best places for a Sunday carvery in Sheffield - it always has 3 different meats on and a nice drinks selection and has a good reputation as being good value for money. The Bell Hag and Plough Inn are both handy for a pint too.

Lydgate Infants School, Lydgate Junior School, King Edward VII Lower School and Tapton School are all in the immediate area. The area has a number of traffic calming measures such as traffic lights and a lollypop lady before and after classes. The students all tend to spill out of the schools at the same time so it’s just as well everyone has to slow down.

Crosspool is one of the smaller areas of Sheffield – it’s quiet and safe with the benefit of being a stone’s throw to the larger suburbs or Peak District.
