  12. What about Brendan Ingle, boxing trainer. He still lives in Sheffield.
  13. just stumbled on this old post, Is the famous resident still alive ? If so it could be someone with initials J. S. not wanting to give too much away. If dead it could be someone with initials H. B.
  14. Very interesting: just a thought, how about doing a list of pre WW 2 pubs. I am sure some watering holes were lost thanks to the Fokkers.
  15. Hi, Does any one know who owns the land on the right hand side at the top of Jenkin Road as you come up from Meadowhall.? It's the land where the Iron age / Roman settlement is. I was told some time ago it belongs to the National Trust, but i don't know how true this is.
