  1. On his live album "The Simmer Dim", John Martyn introduces the folk song "Spencer The Rover" by stating that he was a criminal who was the last person to be hanged in Sheffield. If I was clever I could link the page on the Sheffield History site that gives the lyrics to the song. Obscurely it seems to ba page about a canal bridge. or Anyway, the song says nothing about him being a criminal or about him being hanged. So is John Martyn's statement correct?
  2. The Methodist Church on Shrewsbury Road belonged to the United Methodist Free Church denomination. There maybe Circuit Plans (with lists of preachers) held at the Rylands Museum in Manchester.
  3. Wow! According to this, then, it took three days and cost 37 shillings. I wonder if that included meals and lodgings?
  4. Here's a question maybe somebody could help me answer. Using stage coaches, how long would it take me to get from Sheffield to London in around 1750? What route would the stage coach take and where would it stop? Anyone got a stage coach timetable???
