  2. Sheffield Co-Op Christmas Sleigh Ride

    I remember it being a ride through landscapes but no a sleigh, I'm sure I remember it being a submarine ride one year and a space rocket the another year, there were mannequins at the front that were steering the vessel which gave me the creeps as a youngster .

    Many hours of fun spent in there, loved running from the back of the " top splash " and jumping off and when you fancied warming yourself up having a lay in the infant pool because it was as warm as bath water.

  13. The Pheasant Inn...sheffield Lane Top

    I was told, the other day, that Lillie Langtry and a a certain King would privately meet there ( in a room ...upstairs) on their way to spend weekends at Wentworth! I wonder if there is any truth in the tale? The affair ran from 1877 to 1880 so depending of the age of the current building you never know .
