The material in this collection relates to the industrial complex and associated industries (mining and others) which came under the umbrella of Newton Chambers Ltd. Its alternative title is the Thorncliffe collection as it covers not only the industrial processes and developments through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries but also some of the social and economic aspects of life for the employees & their families and employers. A large amount of information has been digitised and we are now in the process of cataloguing and uploading this to the website.

The images and other material which appear on the website have been kindly donated from collections held by Chapeltown & High Green Archive (C&HGA), Ecclesfield Parish Council (EPC), Ecclesfield Conservation & Local History Group (EC&LHG), Grenoside & District Local History Group (G&DLHG), Heritage High Green (HHG), Mountcity Investments (Thorncliffe) and many individuals. The original material remains in the ownership/custodianship of those organisations and individuals.

Material must only be downloaded for personal use, and should not be edited or in any way modified; the source should be fully acknowledged. Any copies of material from the website intended for commercial or other third-party use must have the written permission of the owners before it is reproduced. Please contact Ecclesfield Parish Council in the first instance via the contacts page if there are any images you would like to use for these purposes.

The material collected ranges from a single photograph, to a commemorative brochure to a set of memorabilia relating to a particular occasion. Where possible, material is being grouped together. You can see the list of these groups by looking in the filter collections box to the right of this text.
