Description and Travel

"BEAUCHIEFF ABBEY, a village extra parochial, in the same hundred as Dronfield, is situate in a beautiful vale, about three miles and a half from that town. The abbey was founded between the years 1172 and 1176, for regular canons of the Premonstratensian order, by Robert Fitz-Ranulph, lord of Alfreton, in expiation for having conspired with the other knights who slew Thomas-a-Becket."

[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]

The parish borders on Yorkshire to the north and covers 745 acres. The city of Sheffield lies 4 miles to the north.

Chris MORGAN has a photograph of the Beuachief Golf Course on Geo-graph, taken in May, 2008. Obviously Chris thinks there's more to Beuachief than just Family History.
