Sheffield is a city in South Yorkshire, England.[1] It is one of the many villages throughout Britain where witches and wizards settled in numbers after the International Statute of Secrecy to rely on each other for mutual support, living alongside a Muggle population.[2]

C. Gilbert & Co. Ltd., a 1920s gramophone company, was based in Sheffield.

In local wizarding parlance, Grypts (that is, Grindylow larvae) are called "Jarvis".[3]
