Named after the home William Newbould built in 1792, so called because it was on a hill above Broomhall, Broomhill is a suburb that began to grow with the completion of the turnpike road to Glossop in 1821. This led to the creation of terraced houses down Peel Street and larger houses - with five pubs lining the roads by the mid 1830s. As the steel and cutlery industry boomed so did the suburb and today it is an enviable location in the city.

In 1961, English poet John Betjeman called Broomhill the most beautiful suburb in Britain.
