    May be a connection to the Regimental Headquarters of the Grenadier Guards, Wellington Barracks on Birdcage Walk, London?

    1736 Map of Sheffield

    If you look at some of the fields they have odd patterns in them which sometimes vary a lot sometimes the same. I would guess they are indications of what is growing in them or what they are being used for. But there is no key explaining them.

    High Storrs School

    I attended High Storrs Grammar School from 1953-9. At the time of Building Schools for the Future in the Blair years, I was a member of the school premises committee of the London borough of Kingston where I now live. We were given a presentation by our Premises Officer of an official DES case study to illustrate how we should proceed. One example was to demonstrate how a school could be upgraded to have flexible, multi-use teaching spaces and another when demolition was the best option. The first example was High Storrs; the one for which demolition was the answer was Silverdale,

  16. I tried it on OS maps and it works if you add 00 to the coordinates to make 5 digits. Parson Cross came up as Remington Road. There are online converters for different systems.

    Pub on Duke Street?

    Apologies if I've overlooked the answer to this on this site. Eyes are spinning looking at records! On this forum is information about a publican William Maxted 56 Duke Street, Park I Know that this person was a publican around 1884 - from indexers baptisms. MAXTED, Rebecca (of 56 Duke St, born 1884-03-01). Baptised September 6, 1884, by F.Williams at St Luke, Dyers Hill. Parents name(s) are Rebecca & William (Publican) but I cannot find any pub at this location. I thought it could be that the publican didn't live on the commercial premises. But Sheffield Index
