  1. My gran used to work there, so my everyday cutlery is still Eye Witness (wth a little Mosely Rusnorstain thrown in) I've got a bunch of EW knives with Sheffield spelt incorrectly... I like Phlegm a lot, and though his art doesn't float everyone's boat, I suspect that his connection to this now might have saved that memorial stone which otherwise might have been simply sandblasted away - just my humble opinion
  2. Happened by this in the news this morning about someone trying to get a really nice example in West Yorkshire listed Link is from The Yorkshire Post so beware, like The Star, the ads & clickbait make it virtually unreadable https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/why-rare-gas-decontamination-centre-in-yorkshire-town-is-reminder-of-war-effort-on-home-front-1-9657118
  3. AHA !!! https://public-art.shu.ac.uk/sheffield/mac116.html And it rotated..?!
  4. Probably not applicable, but since I came across this, may as well post it: http://johnbrown-sculptor.co.uk/sculpture-in-hospitals/
  5. There's a large stone plaque outside the doors to reception with the hospitals original name on it - that might offer some clues
  6. ...and looks like there's something here - about halfway down: https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/7031-pub-updates/?page=60
  7. This any use ? https://pubhistory.co.uk/Yorkshire/SheffieldB/BlucherInn.shtml
  8. No tramlines, yet it looks like the poles and power cables are still up ?
  9. I'll take you up on that invitation: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Firth+Park+Rd,+Sheffield+S5+6WL/@53.4206509,-1.4476639,140a,35y,180h,39.48t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x48797839b92173f5:0x862fd154ccb7077!8m2!3d53.4134651!4d-1.4450311
  10. Do your house deeds and/or lease contain any clues ? Meanwhile I'm pretty certain at Meadowhead roundabout, next door but one to the garage was a really nice Art Deco house - but it's been 'improved' some time in the 1980's/1990's Always been fascinated by these, I was seriously looking into buying one 10-12 years ago
  11. A quick update from Wessex Archaeology - https://www.wessexarch.co.uk/news/sheffield-castle-what-week
  12. think you can pick the works on this photo prior to the bus garage being extended: http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s12345&pos=2&action=zoom&id=15266 Leadmill Street (on left) after the bus garage was extended: http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;u09812&pos=12&action=zoom&id=108238 Might be more on Picture Sheffield, I just did a quick search of Leadmill Street. There are a couple more photos of the other side of the road to the bus garage
  13. Here's Wood Fold - can't see a plaque/memorial/stone though
  14. I bet the culprits were mainly poachers
