This print showcases a meticulously detailed map of Hesley Farm in the Parish of Ecclesfield and County of York, dating back to 1764. Surveyed by the skilled William Fairbank II, this historical artifact provides valuable insights into the landscape and features of the area during that era. The map highlights various significant landmarks and routes, including the turnpike road from Wood Head to Rotherham, as well as roads leading to Thorp and the Duke of Norfolk's colliery in Hesley Park. It also identifies notable locations such as Hanging Bank Bushes (not part of the farm), Smithy Wood, Earl of Effingham's land, Moor Close, quarry sites, Dr Green's land, Thorp Common, and Dr Simpson's land. Woodland areas are depicted on the map along with sections of Smithy Wood and Hesley Park. Lady Clough Wood is prominently marked alongside parts of a moat surrounding the farmhouse. Additionally, there is a numerical list accompanying this visual treasure which includes tenants' names along with field names, descriptions, and acreages. George Eyre emerges as one prominent tenant at Hesley Farm with numerous plots under his care. The list details his holdings such as Park Royd, Great Lee, Little Lee, Back Yard, Wood End, and more. Preserved within Sheffield Libraries' archives for posterity (arc04463), this remarkable piece measures approximately 52 x 60 cm in its original form. A testament to our rich agricultural heritage in Yorkshire County; it offers an intriguing glimpse into life on Hesley Farm over two centuries ago.
