Otium Stocksbridge

Named after a local landowner John Stocks and his river crossing, Stocksbridge is a small town to the north west of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. It is located in the steep-sided valley of the Little Don River on the edge of the breathtaking Peak District National Park and all it has to offer.

Local industrialist and businessman Samuel Fox, noted for developing the Paragon umbrella frame, brought prosperity to Stocksbridge by establishing a steelmaking works there in the 1860's. Some of the Victorian mill sites from steelmaking's heyday have been redeveloped, such as the Fox Valley retail area with its cafés, restaurants, Friday markets and entertainment. The A616 Sheffield-Manchester road now bypasses the town, drawing traffic away from the centre yet still providing direct access to these two major cities. Stocksbridge is also served by regular buses connecting with the Supertram service right into the heart of Sheffield.

In January 2024 Stocksbridge Town Deal Board unveiled ambitious plans for a brand new town centre that will transform the traditional retail area of Stocksbridge with an investment totalling more than £20m, creating a future proofed town centre which will meet the needs of the local community.
