    Hi all, so glad I found this site, so much history in one place. I was born at walkley in 65, moved to Bubwith rd Brightside where my mum was born and grandparents lived. From there we lived in a cottage in Roe Woods, my dad became one of the first 6 park patrollers, on motorbikes, in Sheffield while at Roe Wood. From there we moved to Shiregreen where mum still lives. Dad was born at the bottom end of Bellhouse rd. Have lived in a few places in Sheffield and now 20 years in Chesterfield. Looking forward to reading lots more and to dig up some of my own memories and photos to share with everyone. :-))

    For your information the letters on the bridge BB & JH refer to Benjamin Blonk and John Huntsman. Blonk Street was so called because when it was made the "tilt" shown on the map on the river side of Blonk St.was "The Wicker ***" belonging to the Blonk Family. On the other side of Blonk St. was "The Wicker Wheel" also belonging to the Blonk Family. You will also see a third grinding shop belonging to the Blonks at the end of the dam to the right of "Blonk Island". Later on John Huntsman had a Huntsman Melting Furnace at the end of the Wicker Tilt building. If you look through the large window nearest to Blonk Bridge you will see the chimney of the Huntsman furnace preserved as a monument. Remember the old Sheffield saying "Down T'Wicker were t'water goes o'er t'weir" the weir on the upstream side of Ladys Bridge diverted water to the Wicker Tilt and Wicker Wheel. I learnt all about this by carrying out research for descendants of this branch of the Blonk family who live in Australia. My Blonk family come from a later branch of the Blonk family

    I've read somewhere that the flats that face Lady's bridge and Nursery Street were originally called Castle House, the windows just above the river was where the dogs were kept when it was a Dogs Home when it re-located there from the Pond Street area in c1900 I think , it wasn't used for long as it was always damp because of the river often flooding the place. The ornamental front door was the entrance and you can still make out the name. At the end of the walk on Blonk Street bridge you can see the initials of one of the men who ran the stables there plus possibly the vets initials too, the chap that owned and ran the stables also had stabling and shoeing available at 30-36 Burton Road now known as the Yellow Arch Recording Studios but the Horseshoe above the arch tells just what it was .

    As recently promised I have extracted the information relevant to Sheffield City Police contained in copies of some early Police Almanacs that I recently had passed to me. The early editions of the Almanac gave very little information in relation to the city and borough forces in a lot of cases, and sadly Sheffield was no exception in this respect. Where there was no change in the information from the previous year I have not repeated it. Note that until 1869, the chief officer was known as the Head Constable, a common feature of early borough/city police forces at that period. 1858: Force strength was 132 to serve a population of 135,310. 1859: The Head Constable was Thomas Raynor, up to January 1859 when John Jackson took up the post. The force strength had increased to 191. 1862: Head Constable - John Jackson. Population - 185,157. Force strengh - 191. 1863: Force strength - 215 1864: Force strength - 230 1865: Force strength - 240 1866: Force strength - 245 1867: Head Constable - John Jackson. Chief Clerk - M.T. England. Force strength - 250 1868: Force strength - 260 1869: Chief Constable - John Jackson. Chief Clerk - J. England. Inspectors - J. Rodgers; J. Wilson; F. Otter. Force strength - 280 1901: Population - 324,243 Force strength - 465. Chief Constable - Commander Charles T. Scott. Deputy Chief Constable - George Mackley, Esq. Town Clerk - Henry Sayer, Esq. Magistrates Clerk - C.E. Vickers, Esq. Inspector Weights & Measures - G.W. Catchpole. Coroner - D. Wightman, Esq. Warrant Officer - Superintendent J. Gilley. Chief Clerk - Superintendent G.H. Barker. Fire Brigade - Superintendent W. Frost. Superintendent Detective Department - J.M. Moody. Central Division - Inspector M. Bridgeman. Attercliffe Division - Inspector G. Moore. Brightside Division - Detective Inspector W. Smith. Broomhill Division - Detective Inspector C. Thompson. Ecceshall Division - Detective Inspector W. Jackson. Walkley Division - Detective Inspector J. Goodwin The first Head Constable, Thomas Raynor was appointed in 1844, on the formation of the Sheffield Borough Police, as it was known as at that time. John Jackson, appointed as Head Constable on 1st January 1859, was to serve until 1898. Commander Charles T. Scott was appointed as Chief Constable in December 1898, and served in this role until 1912.

    This morning I went under Bramall Lane Bridge and investigated further. The far end of the bridge's route (now under the Decathlon car park) is 100 metres from the Staples car park end already shown on this thread (the measurements are marked along the way to aid workmen). I post pictures of the other end of the bridge and an outflow inside the culvert that I think was originally from the Vulcan works dam and water power site. Although I'm happy to be wrong again

    Hi Syrup Thank you for the news article clipping. It's very tantalising close apart from one minor detail the name in the article states G Lyon not J Lyon. However, the date and stables are spot on which leads me to believe Joseph Lyon worked at Sheffield Tramway Company. Joseph (27) married Emma(22) in 1869, the two witnesses are George (53) & Ann Lyon (55). His father is named Thomas so judging by the age gap George is probably Joseph's uncle. They come from a farming background in Lincolnshire so working together with horses makes sense. In 1883 George would have been aged 67 hence the article (oldest servant) makes it more probable that it was presented to George rather than Joseph, who was only 41 at that time. Joseph died (unknown) not long after aged just 44 and was buried at Heeley Christ Church on 2nd Jan 1887. So another connection to the article (he is now going to Heeley). I can only assume that the inscriber perhaps made an unlikely error with the initial on the trophy? I can't find a record of George & Ann having children hence the trophy must have been passed down to one of Joseph's two sons. I did find a very interesting post on this site on the STC and will make contact to see if any employee records still survive and hopefully will provide the proof that George & Joseph did work together. https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/154-sheffield-trams/ Again thanks for the clipping. John O.

    If my memory serves me well, it doesn't usually, I seem to remember that it was used as a stand for milk churns awaiting collection. I may possibly remember a fellow miscreant trying to get one of the lids off to quench a thirst but if pressed I would plead the UK version of the fifth amendment

    It really frustrates me that not enough is known about Sheffield Castle. We don't really seem to have any information at all on this place considering what an important Sheffield structure it was. Sheffield Castle is still an enigma. Why is that?

    modern 'journalism' at its finest. Hide behind youtube and stir some s***. It brought the city together, made us very proud to be sheffielders and remembered the lads who paid the ultimate sacrifice. who plants the bedding plants and sweeps up from time to time is of little or no consequence. I dont see what youre trying to achieve by posting it to be honest.

    This is a recommendation for a book available from Amazon (£8 well spent) - an edited and updated version (with corrections and new information and pictures) of James Hayton Stainton's "Past Chapters in Sheffield History". It was originally published in 1918 for the benefit of prisoners of war. It's very good on old street layouts and especially the background to the High Street widening. There is a "Look Inside" feature on the Amazon site that allows skinflints to read some of its pages: Past Chapters in Sheffield History - Amazon Link

    There was a pub called the Rising Sun on Hunshelf Road at Stocksbridge directly across the road from the billet mill. In the billet mill large ingots were rolled at yellow heat down into blooms of say up to 4" plus square, and then cut up on a hot saw into lengths to suit the customers. In an early application of technology the blooms were measured for length and a very early computer made by Elliot Automation determined the best cuts to make out of a given length to suit the various customers. The computer use first generation germanium transistors and had a 1K magnetic core store for it's memory. The pub was obviously very (too) convenient for the parched workforce and I was told the Fox's had bought out the licence and closed and demolished the pub in 1967. My connection with this came in the early nineteen seventies when I parked my A35 van (Wallace & Gromit Mobile) on the cleared ground of the pub in order to carry out the " Redex Treatment". This consisted of running around until the engine was hot, parking up, removing the air filter; and pouring a can full of Redex engine detergent/cleaner into the top of the carb. This was supposed to clear the valve stems and piston rings and restore performance. It also produced huge quantities of black smoke. When I started this procedure I had failed to notice the large billet mill high voltage substation downwind just a few yards away. I'd also forgotten that large substations often used photo-electric ray fire detection in case of fire in the oil-filled switchgear. I'd just got about half the can of Redex in the engine and couldn't see a hand in front of my face when there was a loud bang from the substation and the loud whine from the billet mill opposite wound down to a worrying silence. The penny dropped ! I flung the air filter inside the car, shut down the bonnet and was speeding back down the hill in the opposite direction to where I knew the high voltage gang would be approaching within about ten seconds. My stealthy departure was not helped by a smoke trail that the Red Arrows would have been proud of. I think I got away with it 'so don't tell anyone. hilldweller.

    The demolition of Sheffield in the 1960's, 1970's & 1980's a blaze was the sky with fires from the demolition sites there were only a few known Sheffield Companies at the time A.D.H Demolition Limited (contracted to Sheffield Council) A. Whites Demoliiton Ltd Childs Demolition Ltd Demex Ltd J. Whites Ltd and later T.D.E (Rotherham) (ancestors of A. Whites demolition) i remember as an only child going with my parents to the demolition sites, i remember the black sooty days crooks moor was ablaze with fires and being situated on a hill you could look across Sheffield and see other contractors lighting the sky. The forgotten demolition men and woman contractors that made Adolf Hitler assault on sheffield oblivious. The Sheffield Council pillaged property with compulsory purchase took peoples homes and business for pittance of monies, i remember sometimes wed pull houses down leaving the odd one still standing whilst the owners or tenants were fighting for their legal rights to stay or be given a better deal. Sheffield Council insisted on the demolition of what we would see today as historical buildings but to the council they was drab, nuisance and needed to be pulled down our sheffield architecture of centuries past were stone masons are not of what is today ended up a pile of rubble and down the tip it went. Odd pieces will have survived and relocated without knowing and the next generation losing site. I know the red set that lay on the floor in kelham island were taken from the Sheffield Abattoir and re laid in the museum yet a piece of history is lost again and no mention of where they arrived from they just part of the decor of the museum yet in truth is part of a bigger history. i attach a stone fireplace my parents built in a property still in the sheffield area, the new owners of that property will never know the history of that house or where that huge fireplace with its ornate archway came from. The archway formed the door way to the GAS HOUSE on commercial Street its were you paid your account (its historic significance to Sheffield is when sheffield turned from Candle Light to Gas. i attach another photo of a font that was part of the St josephs convent, common side htpp://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/environmental-health-part-park-hill-slums-1-5 I'm hoping a log can be made on this site for anyone to upload demolition photographs and maybe if theres any demolition men left that worked on these site can contribute before history is lost. I was a fortunate person i know much of sheffield i lived the era and a breathed it with my family. Im trying to see if we can make a single page where all the data of the lost (demolished) can be found, before it is too late. I want to see what the public holds before i update this site again with All the 1000 pictures and documents i hold of Sheffield

    I remember as a child in the '70s being so proud of that fountain because my Dad had told me that it had been made (partially at least) at Bramahs, which he worked at as a fabricator for some years Cant honestly remember if Dad had actually had anything to do with its construction, but in my head 'My Dad made that!', and I told anyone that would listen !

    Picture Sheffield gives date as 22 July 1961 ( spot on boginspro!) which was a Saturday. The AEC Regent III - VWJ 541 was one of nine Roe bodied vehicles out of 85 AEC's delivered in 1956/57 for tram replacement services, seen here on Route 24 to Tinsley. Used to love the smell of Ground coffee which drifted out of Davy's.

    One of my husband's hobbies is collecting transport tickets, and occasionally in the bits of paper he buys something interesting turns up, such as this one. It is a ticket for the City Clopper, a horse bus which operated in the city in the early 1980s: I remember reading about the horse bus but I wasn't living in Sheffield at the time and I don't think I ever saw it operating. A short film about the service:

    Thanks djash1000 13, 14 and 15 were the 3 St. Aidens blocks that stood opposite the main entrance to City Road cemetery. When the blocks were built in the mid 60s they were not painted or coloured so all the blocks looked identical in their unpainted concrete grey. The colours were only added 20 years later in the 1980s refurbishment. By this time I had moved away from this area so I am not well up with the colours, although in another post I think we did try to tie in the colours as well. DaveH

    According to the writing under the picture it was Harold Lambert as the Lord Mayor and picture taken in 1966. The double door at the bottom when opened revealed a very small dance hall. We used to have a trio play music for the dancing after the speeches and prize presentation.

    This country used to equip the railways of the world. My first machine commissioning job in Asia was in South Korea. One of the British men stopping in my hotel was overseeing the assembly of 200 underground trains exported from GEC Manchester. The new trains were to improve the Seoul underground ready for the Seoul Olympics. Having thrown our industry away we have to import trains now.

    Volume One of the book Ribble by T. B. Maud contains the following ".... in July 1973 it was agreed that Ribble would take over the 'local' express services between Manchester and Bradford (X12) , Barnsley (X19) Sheffield (X48) and Mansfield" Although no specific date is given by implication some time during the month of July is presumed as when Ribble replaced North Western Road Car..

    Dam Lane was next to Summer Street on the enumerators walk. Summer Street still exists. Put it into Google and it'll bring up a map. I suspect that Dam Lane was lost when they built Winter Street Hospital, but I could be wrong. However, Dam Lane was certainly in the Winter Street and Summer Street area.

    Osbert was my great great uncle, though I never met him, but passed the shop on hundreds of occasions without knowing he was a relative. Osbert Skinner was born on 19th August 1885, and baptised 7th October at Highfield, the 5th and youngest son of Charles Skinner. In 1891 Osbert was living with his parents at 24 South Street Moor. He was a watchmaker by 1901, at South Street working for Charles. His older brother Arthur was a keen cyclist (he was financial secretary of the Upperthorpe Cycling Club in 1892) and passed on his enthusiasm to Osbert. In July 1893 the Independent published an advert selling a cycle: "Referee, Clincher pneumatic, splendid condition, balls throughout including head, very little used. Skinner, Jeweller, Sheffield moor" and in 1895: "Before buying machine call and see '95 pattern new patent detachable Brake: best value in Sheffield Skinner Jewellers, Sheffield moor". In 1907 Osbert rode an unpaced race from Sheffield to Bridlington gaining a gold medal in a time of 5h 16min. The book of 1908 says this was his first appearance in the medals. He also won a gold standard medal for 50 miles on the road in 2h 52min 12 secs. in 1907. In 1908 he set a district record of 189 3/4 miles for a 12 hour time trial, and a district record of 2h 35 for 50 miles. This would appear to make him the 1st winner of the "Sharrow 50". As well as these 2 gold medals he also won a gold watch for the best performance of the year and a gold chain for the 25 mile club handicap. The 25 mile handicap may still have been a track race at Bramhall Lane as mass start road racing was strictly taboo with the police at this time. In 1911 Osbert was an own account Watchmaker living at 54 St Marys Road with parents Charles and Ada. On Sunday 4th June 1911 Osbert lost control of his bicycle coming down Baslow Hill and stayed at the Wheat Sheaf Inn recovering for three days (see newspaper cutting. Whites Directory of 1911 shows him at 112 Ecclesall Road. Osbert married Antonie Ferdinandine Friedrichsen on 12th September 1912 at St Augustines. Antonie was born in German South America in 1888, the daughter of a widowed German Sausage Skin Dealer Ernst Friedrichsen, in 1911 living at 61 Ranby Road, Endcliffe, but at 20 Cowlishaw Road at the time of the marriage. Their son Ernest Osbert was born on 3rd February 1915, and he died aged 88 on 6th May 2003 at 23 Hoober Avenue (a jeweller). Osbert enlisted in the Royal Flying Corps on 9th February 1917. He was an Instrument Repairer and Wireless Mechanic with 101 Squadron, serving in France from January 1918. No 101 Squadron formed at Farnborough as part of the Royal Flying Corps on 12 July 1917 and was deployed to the Western Front in August as a night bombing unit equipped with F.E.2b aircraft. Its main task was to carry out night attacks on German railheads and airfields. The Squadron flew during the battles of 3rd Ypres in 1917, and throughout the 1918 German Spring offensives on the Somme before supporting the final allied attacks on the Hindenburg Line. Before his transfer to the R.A.F. from the R.F.C. his rank was A. Mech. 2, Trade:- Instr. Repairer, and once in the RAF Air Mechanic 3rd Class (Inst Repairer), His pay was 2s. 0d. Terms of Enlistment:- Duration of War . In March 1919 the squadron returned to the UK and it was disbanded on 31 December 1919. The last known entry in the telephone book for Osberts Watchmaking business was 1978 - he was aged 93. His wife Antonie died on 8th February 1978 and Osbert died 3 weeks later on 5th March 1978, leaving £55,463 to his son Ernest, who was living at 112 Ecclesall Road. Ernest was still running the business in 1982 where he was photographed by Sheffield Newspapers, possibly on his retirement.

    I lived in the Durham Ox with my parents and grandparents from the early 1950's to the early 80's. I remember Mudfords well, below them was a newsagents, a chip shop, a hardware shop, a tobacconists and a dance school. On the opposite side of the road was a betting shop, a barbers (I think), a garage, Granellis and another car repair shop which had great excitement once because they were fixing Diana Dors' car. Opposite the Durham Ox were three cottages, but, as a child I rarely got to play with the children there because the road was so busy (no Parkway then, just a railway line). On more than one occasion vehicles speeding down the road failed to take the bend and finished up embedded in our door/wall. Above the Ox was a brewery depot, which started out as Ind Coop & Alsopp, later to be Allied Breweries and Tetleys. It was closed when Tetleys moved their offices to Hillsborough. I no longer live in Sheffield and was so sad to see the state of the Durham Ox now, I hope somebody takes pity on it and does it up, although I am sure the resident ghost might object. I don't really believe in such things but after the pub caught fire on Christmas Day 1973 (I think) it was repaired with some changes and weird things started happening. For example the taps on the beer barrels would be turned to off even though the doors to them were locked and things would fly off shelves. The weirdest thing of all was we would find customers chatting to themselves and when asked who they were talking to they all said it was a man with a funny hand!!!

    I would be surprised if you can't buy oatcakes in a grocers shop or supermarket, though they will not be as nice as home made like the recipe above. In Scotland they are traditionally made on a girdle, (girdle not griddle as in England and Ireland). The girdle would originally have hung over an open fire. Picture here of one brand of oatcakes and a girdle.

    Firth Park and its Surroundings Bell Houses demolished c 1925 - I am currently researching local history and collecting material with a view to writing a book about the Firth Park area and its surroundings. Firth Park did not exist before the opening of the actual park in 1875 and was totally rural. Since then the whole area around has changed rapidly over the years, more so in the last 40 or 50 years. If you any information, photographs, memories or stories you would be willing to share with me about the past, please get in touch. This can be about school, work, play, church, the way we lived, housing, the people we knew or simply some story or memory handed down. Photographs can be copied by myself and returned to the owner if required. The main area of coverage will be Firth Park, Page Hall, Fir Vale up towards Firs Hill, Longley, Sheffield Lane Top, up towards the Flower Estate though anything of particular interest just outside these areas may be included. If there isn't sufficient material for a book then everything collected will be deposited in the Local Studies Library in Sheffield so it isn't 'lost'. Thanks

    Hello and a very warm welcome to Sheffield History. Before I continue let me first say that this site is free to use, will always be free to use and you will never be charged a penny to use it - either now or in the future - I feel it's important that websites don't charge visitors and so sheffieldhistory will always cost you absolutely nothing. Everyone has memories - and they are even better when they are shared ! This site was born on February 11th 2007 - after we found ourselves remembering more and more of the things that used to stick out in our minds about Sheffield that just weren't around anymore. We spent time looking them up on the internet and feel that there should be more Sheffield history and memories out there on the net. Sheffield's city, culture and people are fascinating and the history of the city has moulded all that. Here on the site we celebrate everything about our great city and it's history, along with the people that made it what it is. "Whatever happened to....." In the various sections you will find everything from old nightclubs and pubs, people, celebrities, music, the football, and of course your chance to look up all the people you may have not been in touch with for years and years ! Most of my memories are from the 70's and 80's but we need people of all ages to get posting their memories The site is fun, friendly and completely free of charge to use and all we ask is that you contribute your memories or help us out with our research by posting information that you might know in one of the threads ! *NOTE - AS A GUEST YOU CAN READ THE SITE BUT WILL NEED TO REGISTER AN ACCOUNT TO POST OR SEE THE PICTURES THAT ARE POSTED ON THE SITE (it's free and takes 30 seconds !)* To register click here - http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/i...Reg&CODE=00 CLICK HERE TO CONTACT THE ADMIN TEAM
