As can be seen in these images, the original Horse & Tiger pub has been demolished and a new pub built slightly further down the road.

Notes: Due to historical boundaries, the village lies within two townships; Wentworth and Kimberworth. The name is believed to originate from the old Norse word ‘Thorpe’ meaning off-shoot from a pre-existing settlement and ‘Hesley’ from the nearby Hesley Hall in Ecclesfield.
