Notes

Bishops' House is the best surviving and most charming example of a timber framed house in the City of Sheffield, England.  It is open to the public each Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 4pm, so please come and visit!  Located at the top of Meersbrook Park, it was once a farm surrounded by fields. 

The House was built at the end of the Fifteenth Century, around the time two members of the Blythe family became Bishops, hence the name, but their historical connection with the House is unconfirmed. In 1886 ownership passed to the Sheffield City Council and various recreation department employees lived in the house until 1974. It is a Grade II* listed building and has been open as a museum since 1976, run by volunteers since 2011.
