Crookes

Template:Gbmapping Crookes is a suburb of the City of Sheffield, England, about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) west of the city centre. It borders Broomhill to the south, Walkley and Crookesmoor to the east and open countryside around the River Rivelin to the north.

It is known for its large population of students, and is home to the University of Sheffield's Department of Music and a hall of residence, Tapton.

Popular institutions include Crookes Working Mens Club, on Mulehouse Road. It was established in 1926 and was a venue of Def Leppard who played there in 1979. Notable pubs in Crookes include The Grindstone, the Punchbowl, and the Noah's Ark.

Crookes lies near the course of a Roman road from Templeborough to Brough-on-Noe. This area was sparsely settled until the 1790s, when a turnpike road was opened from Sheffield to Glossop, running via the southern end of Crookes, spurring development of the area. Names of roads such as Trusswell Road, Headland Road, and Headland Drive are references to the mediaeval open fields that survived in this area into the late 18th century. In the 19th century this area became a popular 'holiday' spot for residents of Sheffield to escape the soot and grime of the town. Famous people from Crookes include Joe Cocker.
