Darnall, Sheffield

Darnall is a suburb of eastern Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. Darnall was initially a small hamlet usually included with Attercliffe. William Walker, a resident of the settlement, is one of several people rumoured to have been the executioner of Charles I of England. A hall was built by the Staniforth family in the centre of Darnall in 1723; in 1845 this became a private "lunatic asylum". The Darnall New Ground was laid out for cricket in the 1820s.
