17 local firms threw their hats in the ring when the call for entries first went out and the strongest four contenders were invited to submit their ideas for transforming this Sheffield landmark at the heart of the University’s city campus.
Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson’s experience in this type of development, along with their creative approach to the project, won the day and they have now been appointed to work alongside the University team and Henderson’s to prepare the designs for a planning application later this year.
Keith Lilley, Director of Estates and Facilities Management at the University said: “We were really delighted with the high quality approach from all our finalists but the concept that Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson developed just really hit the spot with a great design to incorporate the original house into a stunning modern setting.
“We believe the pub will be a fantastic addition to opening up the spaces around the University to make it a more welcoming place for the people of Sheffield and we know that Hendersons’ many fans will enjoy the opportunity to spend time in the place that was home to Henderson’s for so long.”
Mrs Pamela Freeman, Managing Director of Henderson’s, said she and everyone else involved with the company were really excited to see the plans developing.

It was Henry Henderson who first began manufacturing his own special type of sauce back in the latter part of the 19th century.
Originally manufactured at 35 Broad Lane in Sheffield, Henderson’s Relish is still being made and was in uninterrupted production within half a mile of the site from which the first bottle was filled until the move to a new food production factory in 2013.
The company was bought by Shaws of Huddersfield in 1910 who still supply Hendersons with vinegar. In 1940 Charles Hinksman formed the present company of Hendersons (Sheffield) Ltd., the control of which has remained with the family. Kenneth Freeman, the nephew of the late Charles Hinksman, became the Managing Director and Chairman in 1991 and has overseen many important changes in the company’s profile.
