  3. Thank you! 🙌 I can certainly ship to the states (have a good few ex-pat customers over there already!) and indeed worldwide! Shipping cost depends on destination and the size/weight of the total order... if you add your items to the basket and enter the destination address when prompted the website will calculate the shipping for you. 👍

  6. Sheffield Corporation and. latterly, Council was, as I recall, content to allow the City to continue as the "City of Steel". Sheffield was in the 60s/ early 70s something of a "boom town"...jobs were plentiful and wages reflected this. As a result, we had too much reliance on our staples of steel, engineering and their associated industries but too little diversification. Government policy of fully adopting the EEC D'Avignon agreement hit the City and industry very hard. The UK ,initially, reduced its steel making capacity by 16%....whereas most European countries played lip service,

  9. Tunnel collapse, Fall of a Railway Tunnel Feb 27 1861 A tunnel on the Midland Railway, at Sheffield, suddenly fell in on Monday morning killing six men who were working at a new building close to it, and seriously injuring a seventh man. The tunnel, which formed a communication between the Midland Company's station and the line of the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Company, was 200 or 300 yards in length, and passed under the street called Spital Hill, and through the hill of the same name. The top of the arch reaches within a few feet of the surface of the street; the hill

  10. Whilst it may look a disgrace to you, its a wonderful haven for wildlife, and its a nice place to walk through with the dog. The long building that was up against the fence to the main dual carriageway used to have birds nests in the roof, maybe even. owls nest, and there are/were all sorts of birds to see. It was also an interesting historical place to walk through. I used to like searching for the large metal rings anchored into the ground where I assume the balloons were tethered to, and some of the floor tiles of some buildings were still in place if you knew where to look. It was als

  12. Roarers - now for a spot of name dropping... back in the 90's I spent a day with Lord Patrick Lichfield, the photographer, and one of the tales he told me was of his time in the guards when they did just that in the drainpipes of the four or five storey barracks buildings. Made my early efforts in the local terrace houses look a bit tame!

  13. My association with Harry is almost none existence, I would pass by in my car and that is all. However, many people I spoke to knew him as a gentle and happy man. He was a son of Sheffield who lived in a cave near Baslow. I do not know why but, when I found out that some people called the cave by a different name, I thought "NO - that is Harry's cave." and so I made this in the hope that people will watch it, leave comments under the YouTube and he, and his cave will be remembered.

  16. I went to Thornbridge in 1960 when it was almost brand new. I think the first intake would have been 1958'ish. It was completely separate from next door Birley at that time. I've just been searching round the net and I'm amazed at how little information there is. Not even a decent photo that I can find. Footnote Pupils and teachers all seemed able to get there even in knee deep snow. I don't remember schools closing for any reason in those days.
