  1. The Moor market is clean and smart but to me it will never be a true market, it's more like a small shopping mall. I loved the videos of the market service corridors, I must have walked them thousands of times in my time there. The thing with the Castle market is most folks only remember the latter days when it was neglected and very run down, but in its day it was a lovely friendly place to shop with lots of choice and bargains to be had. Ah well, no point looking back eh?
  2. A few pics of the Moor Market as it is called, although I will always have a soft spot for Castle Market, this one does have a good selection of stalls rather than the endless clothes and mobile phone shops. Give it a go, it's not bad!
  3. We took this photo of the Roebuck Tavern today, It's looking quite dwarfed now!
  4. Lower ground floor, Castle Bakery, stall 174, telephone 29728 What stuff we remember!! Now that we have a floor plan, what about trying to put names to the stalls? I'll have a think anyway and see what I come up with.
  5. Oooops, they seem to have joined together.
  6. A couple of photos of Castle Market, I don't know if they've already been posted as we have quite a few pics now, but anyway here goes.
  7. Thank you, not had a proper look at it all yet, still working my way through it but up to now it's brilliant.
  8. Rag 'n Tag and playing in bombed out buildings. Yes, I know that's two things but that's exactly what Sheffield means to me.
  9. The only smell I remember is the awful one of hops floating up from Whitbreads brewery, yuck, that was a smell. I never thought the fish market was particularly bad though but I didn't much like the huge crab boiler, now I couldn't have done that job for any money.
  10. Obviously I'm a bit biased but the Castle Market every time. The whole layout of the building with the shops on the outside and the gallery upstairs made it all more interesting for me. I thought the Sheaf Market was a bit too boxy and square (if you know what I mean). Unfriendly, never, in fact when I first started work there as a young 'un I thought the lads in the fish market were a little too friendly! Seriously though, all the stall holders had time for a bit of banter, which I didn't notice when shopping in the Sheaf. As I said before, I am biased and thought it was a great place to work and shop, and it saddens me to think what it has come to now, shabby and run down. Saying that, I always call in when I'm in Sheffield just to check how many more stalls are empty, and how many of the old names I remember.
  11. Merry Christmas all and a happy and healthy 2013 lol
  12. Like the film Steve. Very interesting, thank you.
  13. Not posted for a while and just seen this,so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathy. x
  14. Merry Christmas one and all, may we all get what we're hoping for. ;-)
  15. Thanks Dave, that looks better. Perhaps we ought to have got off the tram to take the photo, but it was a last minute job. I don't really know what to think about these pubs being turned into shops and churches, I suppose it's better than having them standing empty but they still look like pubs for heavens sake and to me they just don't look right. Ah well, I suppose it's because I remember them when they were thriving and I don't see those days coming back any time soon.
  16. Hmm, looks a bit dark doesn't it? Can someone lighten it up please?
  17. Took this pic of The Horse and Lion yesterday. We were on the tram at the time so perhaps it's not too clear, but I couldn't believe my eyes so I yelled to Mr Carly to grab a photo quick.
  18. A little late but I'd like to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year, may it be a good one for all of us. :)
  19. Madagascar at the minute. Must remember the mince pie, drink and carrot for Rudolph.
  20. Phew, thats ok then, I'd better see where he's got to. I was getting a bit worried there, Just off to check his whereabouts, see how long I have to wait. lol
  21. Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone. Er, does Santa really not exist then? :(
