    I once made a request and simply used the phrase - under the freedom of Information act could you please ................. It worked but took a while. 
    there is this - http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2000/36/contents 
    and this https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-freedom-of-information/

    No but in the Upper Slaughter area of Gloucestershire they have defibrillators in them due to it being a rural area.

    Precisely my thoughts given that it is shortly school holidays too. The old ESC club house on Shiregreen Lane has been badly vandalised after being left empty for only a short time.
    Pressure is needed to get the security fencing back up around the Pheasant.
    I have already made my local Councillor aware of it if anyone else is interested in adding their twopenn'orth

    Update on the Pheasant. Metal railings have been taken down so the pub is vulnerable. The demolition request was made by QFM group who are here http://www.qfm-group.com/  
    http://publicaccess.sheffield.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage
    So KFC are still attempting to get permission to demolish on the grounds it is to dilapidated and uneconomical to refurbish but with a decision of 8th July 2015 and it was refused yet again. They have been trying for nearly two years now. 
    Worrying they have taken down the security fencing such as it was.

    Think it is mentioned in the J Edward Vicker's books - ? Old Sheffield Town and Popular History of Sheffield I think they are called.

    Come to think of it though by the Edwardian period I  think they had trams running down there but it does look very like that road.

    Immediately it came to my mind that it was walking down Burngreave road away from Abbeyfield park and the old toll house at Firs Hill. Whit walks  and Edwardian? 
    I'm probably way out though.

    I thought it possibly looked like Burton Street Board school on the banner!

    It looks very lonely, boarded up and forlorn now and in a very sorry state. I'll see if I can get a photo this week.

  13. Lyn 1 added a post in a topic: FIR VALE INFIRMARY   

    This photo is in the collection held by the Sheffield's Historical Hospitals Group at the Northern General Hospital. It is from an old photo album possibly dated between 1930 - 1950 and has written underneath the photo -
    Commemorative Plaque  
    Fir Vale Infirmary
    (after covering)
     No one in the group can say where it was within the Fir Vale Infirmary or when it disappeared. I wondered whether anyone on the History forum who worked at or visited the Fir Vale Infirmary can tell us any more about it as the group is curious to know what the plaque had written on it as well as where it was actually situated. From 1930 until 1967 the Northern General Hospital was two separate hospitals situated on the same site, the City General Hospital and the Fir Vale Infirmary. 
    Thanks
