Gleadless (grid reference SK382837) is a former village, since 1967 a suburb of Sheffield located in the southeastern portion of the city. The name comes from the Old English Glida Leah meaning a kite clearing in a wood.

Gleadless is served by the Purple and Blue Sheffield Supertram lines at Gleadless Townend tram stop on Ridgeway Road.

Norfolk Park

Norfolk Park (grid reference SK365859) is a residential area of Sheffield that surrounds Norfolk Heritage Park close to the city centre. The area has been undergoing regeneration over the last few years with the demolition of the former high rise flats in favour of low rise housing with mixed private and local housing association ownership. A privately operated student village is located in the area next to the park.[1]

Norfolk Park is on the blue and purple tram lines with three stops, Park Grange Croft (from which the park is a short walk) Park Grange, and somewhat slightly further is Granville Road/Sheffield College tram stop.
