Intake is a suburb and former village located 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Sheffield city centre, South Yorkshire, England. Due to expansion during the 20th century, the village became a part of the city of Sheffield. Intake is linked to Frecheville via Birley Moor Road, and to Gleadless via Hollinsend Road.[1]


Prior to the 19th century, the area was mainly farmland. The Shire Brook which flows through the south-east, originally marked the boundary between Derbyshire and Yorkshire. However, in the 20th century, many collieries were opened in the area, with coal mining being the main source of employment. In the 1870 publication Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales by John Marius Wilson, Intake is described as being 'a village in Handsworth parish, W. R. Yorkshire; 3 miles SE of Sheffield. It stands adjacent to collieries, and has a post office under Sheffield'.[2]
