Taken from the junction of Fitzwilliam Road and School Street (which no longer exists). We previously had this image labelled as Eastwood Chapel but after tirelessly campaigning that this was incorrect, Sandra Goodge on facebook sent us evidence in the form of an old map. Thanks Sandra :)

Before moving to Dalton, "Asda" and previously "Queens" was in this building for many years. If you know any of the history of Asda in Rotherham please email asda@old-rotherham.co.uk . Robert Thomson on Facebook states: "Before it was Asda, this building was used by W Cooke, they were some sort of engineering company. My Mother and Aunt worked there."

Notes
The Village is named after the great baronial family, the Eastwoods who once owned the land on which the Village now stands.
The original settlement there is now lost in the mists of time, probably peasant farmers cultivating the land around the waterholes and the river banks at that time. Certainly there was farming and some industry there for a long time.
