Richmond Ward contains Richmond District, which is a suburb of the English city of Sheffield in the eastern part of the city.
Richmond began as a small group of cottages and a farm, called Richmond Hall which was built in 1668, and demolished after almost 300 years, in 1966. There is now a housing estate on the site, which was built after the demolition of Richmond Hall Farm.
