    While I was looking for the old papermill dam in Ecclesfield I came upon this old building. It is just across from Jinnah restaurant just up from Whitley Lane. I asked on the Ecclesfield and Chapeltown through time site and they said it was once a coaching inn and called the Plough. Before that they said Colt Lane Farm. Anyone got any more details about its history?

    You were very fortunate to catch 60103, Flying Scotsman, going past Brightside station which was on the Midland region. However, in the 1950s said loco was a regular on the Eastern region line into Sheffield Victoria pulling the Master Cutler. The gun emplacements you mention were built during WW1 and never fired a shot when the Zeppelins bombed Sheffield.

    The area I think you are referring to was the Tyler Street huts which have been covered on earlier posts both on this website and on Sheffield Forum (Google: 'Tyler Street huts' for more details). The 'picturesheffield' website has an aerial view at 's22643' and this http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s20970&pos=14&action=zoom&id=23466 may stir your memories as well. Another site worth a visit is the 'wincobanklivinghistory.co.uk'.

    If you look at this OS map (No 60 on page 4) http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/4008-os-maps-of-sheffield-and-district-195039s-over-300-of-them-33/?page=4#comment-22809 Also maps 173 and 175 on page 9 you may be able to identify where your Grandad lived. The coverage of this area is not complete but I'm sure other members on this Forum will be able to add their local knowledge. Click on the map to enlarge and scroll up or down (or left to right) as necessary to give a better fix on the location.
