    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 .
  5. Was it Adrian or Ian you worked with John Simpkin's sons ?

    Sheaf Valley Baths : Your Memories...

    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. That's great thanks, so can anyone hazard a guess at the building dates of the buildings ?
  14. Does anyone know anything of the history of the old farm type buildings on Norwood Grange Drive opposite the Norwood Grange nursing home ?
