    Summer on Fargate!

    The end of this youtube video there's a glimpse of the Goodwin fountain. Apologies if it's been shared before.

    Heart of the City 2

    If it looked anything like 1885 I'd visit town more often.

    Sheffield Castle Excavations - Week 2

    Weren't the castle stones used to construct other buildings and bridges when it was demolished shortly after the civil war?

    Heppenstall Lane, Attercliffe

    Very unfortunate how Sheffield is panning out nowadays. Not only are we losing our heritage and historic buildings, Sheffield is looking bland and characterless unlike the past.
  15. Great looking postcard! Yeah, junction of Barnsley Road and Scott Road. Definitely prefer 1917 Scott Road to 2018. I like to walk through Burngreave cemetery but the Scott Road entrance is congregated by youths and unsavoury characters. They also hang about in the cemetery which creates an uneasy feeling.
