  1. I have picked up in my studies another person involved in the slave trade who lived in Sheffield and became rich from it and that was Edward Bennet, who lived in Coal Pit Lane and who built a sugar refinery. His sugar came from Liverpool, but he is also listed as an investor in a slaving ship along with Thomas Staniforth. His became a preacher and built a Chapel at the same time he was importing sugar from Liverpool. His father was an early Methodist and friends with Whitefield one of the leading abolitionists. So one wonders what the conversations were like in their family. When Edward died

    Building On Cambridge St

    The current building seems to have been built in 1880 by the Smith Bros, ivory dealers, and from the outset was called the Albert Works. The Smiths originally had the ground floor and rented the rest out to the Brook Brothers who were silver platers. The Smith Brothers partnership had been dissolved in 1864 (Thomas and Ann, his sister in law, Ivory, Pearl and Tortoise-shell Cutters and Dealers based at the Washington Works). The Smith Brothers ivory dealing business continued at the Washington Works until late 1880 when they moved into their newly built premises on Cambridge Street. Just ov

    The Moor in 1977

    Well spotted, I missed the sign, so perhaps not a very temporary thing like site entrance. I am sure the name of the arcade is related to Cambridge Street (previously Coal Pit Lane) but have never seen any evidence of an earlier road just where the arcade was. Pinstone Street as we know it didn't appear until after 1880 and I think the arcade was built soon after that. Up to 1960 Cambridge Street lined up just about directly with the top of the Moorhead triangle that surrounded the Crimea Monument and I may be wrong but think the addresses on that bit were Moorhead.

    Coal pit Lane

    As most of my family appear to have lived around what is now Upperthorpe, Netherthorpe, through to the town centre along Solly Street and Townhead Street, I was hoping to find Coalpit Lane near there as I have a branch of my family living there. I know roads ‘disappear’ over time and wondered which map I should look at to see if there ever existed Coalpit Lane in this area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. This article appeared in the 1884 Sheffield & Rotherham Independent. It trace`s the route taken by yourself along Cambridge Street or as it was in earlier times Coal Pit Lane.
  8. and just to mess with your mind, here's a line from 1852 that potentially blowns the whole thing to smithereens ... 2 Coal Pit Lane/Cross Burgess Street, Matthew Osborne, Union (1845-1862) (Now, if the Union, became The Albert, all is good and the Directory compiler had a wobbly; if now number 2 Coalpit Lane is halfway down the street, under John Lewis on Cross Burgess Street !!! you figure it out !

    Alfred Hukin (1805-1857)

    If you look on our A to Z of pubs you will see there are 4 Yellow Lion's 12 Haymarket 59 Clifton Street , Attercliffe High Street , Unstone 1 Coal Pit Lane. I have seen Alfred Hukin somewhere at another pub but I can't remember which one it is now. The reason I took notice was because of the name Hukin, a distant ancestor. At a guess I would say it was 1 Coal Pit Lane but I'm sure some of our experts will come up with the correct answer.

    Jew Lane/Jehu Lane

    In November 1846 the Independent described a variety of street improvements, amongst them: "...gives power to the Commissioners to make the following new streets....5. Baker's hill to Pond street. But this includes a great deal more. Connected with it is the widening of all Jehu lane and about 100 yards of Pond street. The upper or western side of Jehu lane is to come down, so as to turn this narrow lane into a wide street. The new street begins with the Palace Inn and goes forward for about 100 yards, crossing Pond hill just above the end of Little Pond street. Here the widening of Pond
  20. There you go Neil pick the bones out of this, the piece is out of copyright but thanks go to Eric Youle for the transcription...... From the Church to Shales Moor coming from the Church, the first place of note was the old Town Hall, built in the year 1700. It stood at the South East Corner of the Church Yard. It was built of Stone for the use of the Town. The Sessions was held here, and the Magistrates used to do all their business in it. There was Steps went up on each Side the door on the North Side into the Hall, also a flight of Steps facing up Church Lane for the Magistrates and
  21. Good picture link though History Dude. That section of the Manor estate shown on Queen Mary Road is older than I thought at 1929, - but it is the section which has recently been demolished and cleared so that those concentric oval roads centred around Fairleigh are no longer complete. Good view of the old pit spoil on Coal Pit lane.

    Building On Cambridge St

    This by email from Ron Clayton. Andy, I've come across this stone before and been wary of flagging it up in case it 'walks'. Daft I know but it ought to go somewhere safe before Sevenstone starts up.Coal Pit Lane[Cambridge St]had a house in the C17th with the crossed daggers [Cutlers Company] and a door lintel with the initials LJS. There is a drawing by W. Topham [1877 showing a Cutlers House with a different sort of stone above the doorway - its not a million miles away from the location of the one in question. I think someone has said that it could indicate the owner had been m
