S8 Area Guide
Batemoor, Beauchief, Greenhill, Jordanthorpe, Lowedges, Meersbrook, Norton, Norton Lees, Woodseats
The S8 postcode area covers the South part of the outskirts of Sheffield city centre down towards Dronfield. Covering a vast array of suburbs, the properties range from larger more expensive family homes in the Beauchief area to cosy more affordable homes in the Jordanthorpe, Norton area. This makes S8 a great place to look for your next property whether you want your family's forever home, or if you are just starting out on the property ladder.
At the most southern part of S8, you will find Lowedges, Greenhill, Batemoor and Jordanthorpe. These areas are removed from the hustle and bustle of Sheffield City Centre and the University campuses. There are still plenty of local amenities and with Woodseats and Chesterfield Road only being a 10 minute bus ride away, so if you fancy something a bit more lively then you've not far to go. These suburbs are close to the Dronfield bypass which leads to Chesterfield. If a daily commute is something you are committed to, then this part of S8 is conveniently placed with easy access to the M1.
Greenhill Park situated in Lowedges offers a playground, a bowling green and a skate park. Lowedges Festival is held here on the second Sunday of August each year which demonstrates the community feel of the area. Sheffield Transport Sports Club on Greenhill Main Road offers football pitch hire, practice golf facilities, snooker hire and cricket pitch hire. Also, as you head up toward Norton you will find Graves Health and Sports Centre. Being newly refurbished in 2016 the facilities offer a swimming pool, gym, and various fitness and sports classes.
S8 boasts plenty of green space. Not only is there the aforementioned Greenhill Park, but also Oakes Park, Norton Playing Fields and Meersbrook Park. Meersbrook Park has a playground, 2 bowling greens, a cricket wicket, tennis courts, basketball hoops, a skateboard park and also some woodland area. Graves Park has a playground, cricket pitches, a practice golf course, football pitches, bowling greens, tennis courts and a playground. There are plenty of open grassy areas plus woodland, streams and 3 small lakes. The Rose Garden Café is close to the playground and offers hot and cold food. What makes this park extra special for the little ones however, is Graves Park Animal Farm. Entry is free and here you can find rare farm breeds and smaller animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Along with all this parkland, S8 is home to a fair few allotments: Woodseats Allotments, Heeley and Meersbrook Allotments and Warminster Road Allotments.
As with a lot of other areas of Sheffield, S8 offers a wonderful array of choice when it comes to eating out. From bistros, delis, Italians, Mexican, Caribbean and Indian, you can pretty much take your pick with any cuisine you fancy. That Place is voted number 6 on Trip Advisor for Restaurants in Sheffield. No mean feat considering that it is only open in the day between 9am and 3pm. It's speciality of a homemade scotch egg is something not to be missed. If you'd rather be eating out in the evening then Viraaj might be a good choice if you fancy a curry. Winning Yorkshire Restaurant of the year in 2017 in the English Curry Awards this curry house is definitely worth a visit. For something a little bit special then Marco @ Milano is an excellent choice. Serving high end Italian food in a beautiful building, which used to be a police station!

Just off Chesterfield Road is Heeley Retail Park where you can find a Next Clearance, Pets at Home, Boots, Costa Coffee, Matalan and Currys.
