    Bole Hill Quarry

    Those bollards have probably been moved there at sometime in the past when they were no longer required in a Sheffield city centre location somewhere. The 'badge' is the—very corroded—coat of arms of Sheffield Corporation.

    Sheffield - A City In Lockdown

    The one thing I do remember is we would turn off where Carver Street is and anybody correct me if I’m wrong but I remember they used to be a flares pop world now is? So I’m not 100% sure if the club that West Street live now is would’ve also been flares at the same time! But I was really young so my memory could be very vivid 😔😔

    National Emergency Services Museum

    Here's the building in the 1960's. It was 'PARADISE HOUSE' then Does anyone know anything about the history of this building?

    West Bar in the 1960's was a very different place.

    Sheffield - A City In Lockdown

    Hi! I was so young but I’m sure it was on the corner where west street live is now! I’ve tried my hardest to google it and nothing comes up I’m hoping I’ve not got to location wrong but it was definitely on West Street and it was yellow on the outside and it had multicoloured lights near the door way

    An open letter and plea to Sheffield regarding Shiregreen WMC

    I was saddened to read the letter. I was never a member of Shiregreen Club but back in the 80s was a fairly regular visitor...not for the Bingo but for the "Turn". I enjoyed the cheap beer; the crowds out of an evening determined to have some live entertainment and a good laugh with friends. The Committee ran the place like clockwork and with several other clubs within walking distance they had to be on their toes to keep members "happy" ( free beer in the New Year which repaid the membership fees as an example) Club life started to die ( as did Publife) with the increase in police action to stop drinking and driving and the ban on smoking killed off what was left after too many members found the cheap booze in supermarkets too enticing. It is sad that so many Clubs have gone but a few continue...some have even started to offer meals.Just along the lane was the English Steel Sports Club.. another well loved venue for all manner of activities...including their famous Gala Day... The Club has now gone after being transferred by the Council, for a period, to the "Community" I gather vandalism was the final straw. Working Class culture is vanishing rapidly... to be replaced by ?????

    Bole Hill Quarry

    Hello All, Yesterday I stumbled upon the site of Bole Hill Quarry. There is plenty of stone in the ground and paths just by Bole Hill Rec. Of interest was this set of bollards at the end of Moorsyde Avenue. I don't think I've seen the style before. Any thoughts or information on the Quarry? Can't find much - it looks like it was pretty small?

    The Forum Cinema

    Updated the thread with a photo of the interior of The Forum cinema showing the seats and the screen
  20. Thanks, Edmund. Saved me hunting one out. The Chantrey at the bottom of Haughton Road it is.
  21. Hang on...it’s me. Ok.... the Woodseats Palace WAS where Wetherspoons is.....opposite the Police Station. The Chantrey was on the same side as the Big Tree, a little way above it. Possibly, where the Voice Centre is now? Anyone???

    The Salvation Army Citadel building in Sheffield City Centre

    It's situated just next to the new retail quarter I think
  23. Oh no... Now you've got me doubting everything I ever knew about this place! Does anyone know?

    The Salvation Army Citadel building in Sheffield City Centre

    In Leeds there are streets and streets of buildings like this in everyday use
  25. Last week
  26. I guess it's the speculator's who own the building's that have the final say, bit like what happened with the old Town Hall! If you don't let us develop it our way, we'll let it fall into disrepair.
  27. The Duke of York pub in Darnall was demolished a few years back thanks to the council selling out to Lidl. Pulling down a building that's been there since 1825 just so the Lidl sign can seen from further up Main Road.
