Hallam, Upper

HALLAM, UPPER, a township, in the parish of Sheffield, union of Ecclesall-Bierlow, S. division of the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill, W. riding of York, 3¾ miles (W. S. W.) from Sheffield; containing 1401 inhabitants. This township, forming a romantic district, is bounded on the west by the mountainous moors of Derbyshire, on the north by the river Rivelin, and on the south by the Porter; near the source of the former river is the Redmires reservoir of the Sheffield water-works, about 50 acres in extent. A mineral spring here was in great repute at the time of the plague in 1666, but it has long been neglected.—See Fulwood.
