Full Description

The White Swan is mentioned as an inn in 1722 when it was sold for £14 by the daughters of Francis Burton, who had been Lord of the Manor, to George Taylor of Dronfield (Innkeeper). It was well placed for both the old turnpike, which went to Sheffield via the steep incline of Green Lane, and for the new turnpike built in 1795 along the Drone Valley. (1)
