Darnall was initially a small hamlet usually included with Attercliffe William Walker, a resident of the settlement, is one of several people rumoured to have been the executioner of Charles I of England A hall, known as Darnall Hall was built by the Staniforth family in the centre of Darnall in 1723; in 1845 this became a private "lunatic asylum"1 Darnall had a population of 10,672 in 20112

The Darnall New Ground was laid out for cricket in the 1820s Although only used for a few years before being replaced by a ground at Hyde Park, it was described as the finest in England3

Holy Trinity church, the first in Darnall, was built in 1840, followed by a hospital in 1855 and a school in 1875 By the mid-nineteenth century, it was a centre for farming and coal mining, and was known for its amateur greyhound racing1 Industry was also important, with the Don Glass Works established around 1793, augmented by the Darnall Works steel foundry from 18354

In the later 19th century, the area was built up to house steelworkers working in the large foundries of the Lower Don Valley Darnall railway station was built on the Sheffield to Lincoln line to serve the suburb Unemployment grew as the foundries shut or laid off many employees from the 1970s on, and the area is now one of the poorest in the city

A mix of council housing, 1880s steelworkers cottages, small terrace housing and 1930s private semi-detached houses make up the accommodation within the Darnall area


Demographic changes over the years have reduced the population with a consequent reduction in the number of school-age children in the district There are two primary schools in the area, High Hazels Academy and Phillimore Community Primary School Secondary level schools outside the area provide education for children aged over 11 years

Darnall has a large immigrant community, including many Muslims Primarily of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origin The suburb has several mosques

In 2003, Morrisons stores pulled out of the district after over 20 years being a significant local hub for the local community, relocating to a new purpose-built store 2 miles away in Catcliffe

High Hazels Park is the major open space in this area of the city

Darnall was represented in the FA Cup during the 1920s by Darnall Welfare FC
