  1. I agree with you boginspro the photograph was taken from the lane coming down from Pedigree Woods! Looking over to the left the lane climbs up the hill past Holmhurst Farm(circled) and onward to meet up with Holmhurst Road. Camping Lane winds over to the right,climbing up the hill on its way to Abbey Lane.
  2. Thanks for the link SteveHB! Police Station address in 1881 No 4 Burgoyne Rd
  3. Anyone know when the Police Station was built? The address for the Police Station on the 1901 census is Burgoyne Rd, the address on the 1891 census is Langsett Rd, can't find it on the 1881 census!
  4. Pevsner Architectural Guide says the Eye-Witness Works built in 1852 was originally a two story building, construction work started c1875 extending the building and adding a third floor. It could simply be that Henry Baver/Beever was working on the construction site and with a bit of spare time on his hands decided to leave his mark on the building! Henry Ibbertson Beever was born at Slack Fields, Oughtibridge the son of Thomas & Harriet Beever, he was christened at St Nicholas Church Bradfield on the 4th of May 1843. His wife Priscilla Beever(nee Smith) died in 1930 aged 83.
  5. Wasn't there a sports shop on Bramall Lane? Seem to remember a couple of mates buying the latest Patrick football boots at a shop somewhere on Bramall Lane in the late 60s.
