Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Derbyshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base. The population of the City of Sheffield is 551,800 (2011 est.)[1] and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up the "Core Cities Group". Sheffield is the third largest English district by population.

The present city boundaries were set in 1974 (with slight modification in 1994), when the former county borough of Sheffield merged with Stocksbridge Urban District and the very large civil parishes of Ecclesfield and Bradfield from the Wortley Rural District.

Subdivisions of Sheffield Metropolitian Borough

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Sheffield is made up of many suburbs and neighbourhoods, many of which developed from villages or hamlets that were absorbed into Sheffield as the city grew. These historical areas are largely ignored by the modern administrative and political divisions of the city; instead it is divided into 28 electoral wards, with each ward generally covering 4–6 areas. These electoral wards are grouped into six parliamentary constituencies. Sheffield is largely unparished, but Bradfield and Ecclesfield have parish councils, and Stocksbridge has a town council.

The numbers on the map refer to the wards in the following list. In each case the reference leads to a Wikipedia article on that part of the city rather than one within WeRelate.
