Welcome to The Grenoside Reading Room website
This building, the only listed building in Grenoside was originally built as a school, being the second endowed school in Grenoside - the first endowed school, under the trusteeship of the Church Wardens of Ecclesfield, was situated in Lump Lane. The exact date it was built, on land owned by Thomas Walker, is unknown, but the date has been narrowed down to between 1789 and 1791.
In 2006, the trusteeship of the Reading Room passed from the Ecclesfield Parish Council to residents from the village of Grenoside. The building has been restored, with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and it is now a Heritage Centre for the use of all the residents of Grenoside and the surrounding area.
