Norton is one of the most southern suburbs of Sheffield, surrounded by Gleadless, Greenhill, Beauchief and Hemworth. It’s just off the A61 that goes either into Sheffield city centre or south to Chesterfield. As far as spacious areas of Sheffield go, this suburb is within walking distance of the Lees Hall Golf Club and Graves Park – weighing in at 200 acres and easily the largest in Sheffield. The park was donated to the city in the 1930s by J.C. Graves and offers lakes with exotic waterfowl and a rare breeds animal farm as well as a café and sports facilities.

The Golf Club is unrestricted so you can pop down for a round as a guest and hire everything you need from the club itself. There’s a restaurant and bar too, for when you’ve lots all your balls or the weather takes a quick turn for the worse.

Local educational facilities include the Norton Free Church of England School and Norton College.Other facilities include the Cricket Club and the Country Club. The Cricket Club is a very active organisation with regular games and updates to their website.

As far as pubs and restaurants go, The Prince of Wales has a good reputation for food and drink – other good drinking establishments include the Sportsman Inn, The Bagshaw Arms and The Beefeater Restaurant and Pub.

Buses run through to the other side of Sheffield every 20 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on Sundays. It’s one of the quieter suburbs of Sheffield but well within 10 minutes of the large supermarkets and facilities in the Woodseats area.
