  1. 2015 Sandersons old gate house, Darnall. CHARLES ROSS SHEFFIELD Ross began in 1865 according to an earlier post. I would guess that this was installed around that time
  2. What is your grandfathers name please? I have a wage ledger.
  3. I suggest you contact Bradfield Archives and the Parish council as the look after troughs. I would guess at Agden Rocher in the background
  4. A friend inherited some of his paintings which were sold when he needed a drink. A competent artist. What is the interest please? I am trying to find out more.
  5. There were little plates indicating the Sheffield Flood level but were stolen
  6. Some uncertainty, may have reopened for a time in WW1. Recently discovered that some crucible melting in 1941 took place. I am hoping to arrange an open day in Sept 2017.
  7. Middlewood admission papers 1954 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121584827075?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  8. I think I copied the list from this site some years ago as I my grt grandfather married Isabella Farnsworth. I am unclear about the name change. In 1851 the Census gives "Furtunes of War". interesting street map which gives Nowills the cutlers, still on the same site?

  9. I think this will be the Sheffield Gas Company where my grandfather worked? He is in the pic. Does it exist please?
  10. Its a pity the sale description didnt answer our puzzle The posts look out of place. I wonder if they were made for a turnpike but became defunct before purchase? hence where then utilised where ever.
  11. HD, In a way its academic re. the gate posts but its always interesting to solve problems. Have you ever seen any of the Roman masonry in the walls next to the road? I read several references but don't ask me where.
  12. The dip in the road looks the same but the distance between the top and bottom of the far windows is very different?
  13. Take a look at these at Hunters Bar http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s16163&pos=3&action=zoom&id=18898
  14. Just been using Brian Tweedales "Sheffield Directory", he has amassed a great deal. A 2014 publication is in the reference library
  15. Interesting book especially the Roman Fort. I dont think we know much more now. Sam is listed in the Rivelin valley in 1841 Been looking at lead mining in the Ewden Valley, some Bradwell men worked there.
  16. HD -Exactly, You wouldnt want to move them far. Do you know anything re. Sam Fox house?
  17. Anyone any idea about these posts - similar to the Mortimer Rd ones at Bamford.
  18. VINTAGE LEATHER BOUND WAGES LEDGER Kayser Ellison steel works 1944-46 Darnall and Carlisle Works Rescued from Ebay. If anyone needs me to look for names please ask
  19. The church goes back to 1853, Just thought there is no no grave yard so I wonder where they were buried. The are/ were classed as none-conformists. Thanks for advice.
