The Abbey Woodseats Sheffield

I must admit that the only time I visit the Abbey nowadays is when there is a funeral at the nearby Abbey Lane cemetery and/or Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium. But it does have a surprisingly long history for a public house. The following is from The Sheffield and Rotherham Independent dated 6th September 1856

Below is a selection of photographs of The Abbey and adjacent roads

Abbey Lane Woodseats Sheffield 

Following a 550,000 refurbishment by Punch Taverns, the Abbey in Woodseats reopened its doors to the general public on 12 August 2016. At a pre-launch event the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Denise Fox, cut the ribbon officially reopening this historic former coaching inn on the junction of Chesterfield Road and Abbey Lane.
