Bishop's House by oldjosh

Bishop's House

Bishop’s House is one of the earliest and best preserved timber-framed houses still surviving in Sheffield.
It was built around 1500 and has been extended and altered by its various owners over the last 500 years.
The name comes from a local tradition that two Bishops grew up here, though there is no evidence to support this story.
The house has probably survived because it was lived in almost continually until 1976, when it was restored and opened as a museum.
A gem of a house
