2 Market Place, Chapeltown, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S35 2UU
A 1920 photograph shows the then new ‘Waggon and Horses Hotel’. It had been completely rebuilt on the site of the earlier ‘Wagon and Horses’, clearly marked on the 1905 OS Map and recorded in a photograph taken just after the railway bridge was built over Market Place, in 1897. That same year, Matthew Henry Habershon published his ‘researches’ on Chapeltown, where he refers to the ‘White Horse’ inn. He writes: ‘The ‘White Horse’ public house in the Market Place has upon its signboard the date 1720. The other old house, the ‘Wagon and Horses’, is no doubt as ancient.’
Illustrations and text about Cowley Manor and Howsley Hall.
The text reads: Cowley Manor
Built around 1600 by the Earl of Shrewsbury, Cowley Manor was erected on the site of a medieval building described as “a stately castle-like house moated about”.
The ancient manor of Howsley is recorded as early as 1436. The Howsley family owned it then, and continued to do so until 1837. The Hall, which still stands, was built in the 1600s.
