  1. I have a problem, I am trying to identify two farms nearly opposite each other on Bingley Lane. Bingley House (O.S. maps) is now at least a farm and looks 19th c to me but I think replaced an older one, I have no idea what was there before, Topside of the lane is Bingley farm (O.S. maps) or Bingley Lane Farm. This was due to be demolished because of a tree problem but not now. It has evidently some great age. I have references to a "...farm on Bingley Lane" 1819 and later stated "... a farm at Bingley House" mentioned 1835. So description inconclusive. I have a Mark and an earlier Charles Dyson (pre 1828, possibly pre 1800) Both cutlers and mentioned in connection with the "Bingley House Trust" - set up to educate the Stannington poor in the 17th c. and associated with Underbank School and chapel. "Revitt, Jonathan, Born Mar 06 1820 in Nether Gate, Stannington, Yorkshire, Died Jun 06 1896 in Bingley House, Stannington" (Tribal page.) There are Beals at Bingley Farm (I reckon) in the 1841 Census, another cutler.not yet found later Census I have been unable to track down any old pics or old maps . Can anyone help please? Mike

  3. This image is captioned 'Sharrow Lane Nursery and Infant School' but I can't place this on Sharrow Lane at all. Anyone any ideas where it is? It's dated 1979. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s31214&pos=4&action=zoom&id=103597
  4. Can someone put a name to this church on the corner of Rowland Road and Bramall Lane, please.
  5. Hi, I've been a member for a while now but this is my first post. I'm doing some family history research, and in the 1901 census my great great Grandfather was living at number 30 Joiner Lane and further research reveals he was living at this address up until his death in 1909. However, Joiner Lane seems to have now disappeared. I have seen a map which shows Joiner Lane running parallel to Joiner Street, just off Nursery Street, but the map I've seen (50's I think), doesn't show any dwellings. I'm hoping to find any photos and/or maps of the area for the period when he was living there. Also, the 1911 census shows my great Grandfather living at 53 Kilton Street (another street which has now gone), and also shows him as employed at the Silver Plate Works. I looked into this and the only Silver Plate works I can in Sheffield at the time is Beaumont Bros on Joiner Lane! Any help with this would be very much appreciated.
  6. Watson's butchers (next door to Friederick's )on Bellhouse Rd was our family butcher for very many years until our allegiance went to Senior's at Sheffield Lane Top on account of his giving our church lunch club a nice discount on all meat purchases!
  7. The bit of the pipeline that runs locally was part of the link between Rawcliffe and Bramhall. We picked it up at the pumping station and mothballed distribution depot at Black Bank near Oxspring. From there it runs along Wharncliffe Chase, past the crem at Grenoside, down under the Don by Middlewood Tavern, up past Worral, down Long Lane to cross the River Loxley by Rowall :Lane. It then runs up and over the Stannington Ridge and down to cross the Rivelin by the bottom of Lodge Lane. It runs up the fields to the hairpin junction on Lodge Lane and the through side gardens to the junction with Redmires Road. At this point it crosses to the other side of Blackbrook Road and through front gardens to a point just past Rochester Road where it bends at right angles and runs over the fields up to Fulwood Lane. From there it runs across the fields to Ringinglow Road, turns at a right angle, and follows this out to Upper Burbage Bridge, down Callow Bank, around Hathersage, Hope and Castleton. It then runs up the right hand side of the Winnetts Pass under the wide grass verge and at the top runs across to Bramhall. It was just past this point that a JCB damaged the pipeline and I understand the clean-up costs ran into millions. I hope this answers your question. hilldweeler
  8. As the article states the WW2 Pluto network was found unsuitable for further use and abandoned. It was replaced by the present network, the local bits were installed in the 1950's. There was a small pumping station / depot for the old network, located at Calver Sough where the car park of the present shop / cafe is nowadays. A long diagonal depression in the Calver Cricket Ground pitch was found to be due to the collapse of the old pipeline. My brother in law, sadly no longer with us, used to work at the spa processing plant up above Stoney Middleton and when they were digging a service tunnel under the road to link two parts of the plant they came across the severely corroded pipeline. I believe the bit of the modern pipeline running through the outskirts of Sheffield is still operational because they still overfly the route every couple of weeks and it's only a year or so ago that I saw the bloke with a instrument strapped to his chest and carrying two ski-stick probes making his way through peoples front gardens in Lodge Moor. He is checking the efficiency of the cathodic protection on the pipeline. The leases of the properties contain a covenant from the MOD giving the bloke access. It's only a few years ago when they replaced worn sections of the pipeline at Lodge Lane and Upper Burbage Bridge.
  9. By August 1862 Abram was planning to move out, and had left by 18th September. At that point the house was called "Park Elms" now it's number 3 Park Lane However... a few weeks previously in July the property seems to have been occupied by Mrs Bradbury, a neighbour of Abram's when the census was taken in 1861. Musical chairs with rented houses perhaps, as new ones were being built and enticed people to swap between them?
  10. Not easy, as most of the inhabitants moved house between census dates, building new properties was in full swing and house numbers were thought beneath the occupants' dignity. The 1861 census shows: Southbourne Lane looks like a mistake by the enumerator, as even in the 1857 Whites directory Abram thought he lived on Park Lane, Here's a series of maps - my thoughts are that he lived at one of the houses at the junction of Park Lane and Collegiate Cresent
  11. I am not in a position to wander far from Hilldweller Towers, but I wonder if you are refering to a structure in the field over the wall on the left as you drive down what has at this point becomes Stockarth Lane. Just over the wall in front of it is a little five bar gate gizmo which gives the clue to what it is. The gate is the marker to show the line of the oil pipeline which forms part of a national pipline network connecting oil refinaries and depots all around the country. The pipe is of a considerable diameter and depth and contains oil products at very high pressures. Because it is not a contour pipeline the operating pressure is highest near the low parts of the line and following some ruptures and spillages, valve houses were installed at lower points to limit the escape of oil when excessive flows (escapes ) occur. I think that is what the structure which has a removable lid is. The entire original system was installed by the government in the 1950's, at the height of the cold war, to enable oil to be transported around the country in times of national emergency. I believe it is now operated privately. The little five bar gates are falling into disrepair in some cases but tall white steel poles with a yellow pent roof and a black stripe across it give guidance to the helicopters which fly over it on a regular basis. The only reason I know about this is because we once bought a bungalow at Lodge Moor which had the pipeline running through the front garden about 15 feet from the house and quite understandably I went into it further. A then young nephew and I had great fun tracing it's route across Yorkshire and Derbyshire by following the little five bar gates. I hope that I am not being indiscrete but the entire urban route of the line is marked by little roadside signs stating "Oil Pipeline" "In case of emergency ring so & so". There is even one sited in front of the struture. I think the Russians probably knew about it before it was laid. Co-incidently I remember my father and I talking to the gangs who were laying the pipes across the Loxley Valley in about the mid fifties. I took me about 50 years to find out what they were for.

  12. A number of you will know Ken Wain as one of the contributors to our Sheffield History Forum and of his excellent work and his contributions to our knowledge of local coal mining history, [Westwell Colliery; Collieries Near Mosborough; Coal Lorry At East Birley Colliery; Etc]. Many of you will therefore be interested to learn that Ken has now produced his first book, titled "The Coal Mining Industry of Sheffield and North East Derbyshire"; ISBN: 13-978-1445639635, published by Amberley Publishing, [30-06-2014]. Containing 192 pages and with over 250 illustrations, this book has much to interest those of us who would like to broaden our knowledge about this district's coal mining past. There are specific chapters covering coal mining in Woodhouse, Birley East Colliery, The Sheffield Coal Company, Gleadless, Fence Colliery, Orgreave Colliery and Coking Plant, Nunnery Colliery, Handsworth Colliery, Tinsley Park Colliery, Aston - Beighton - Brookhouse Collieries, Killamarsh Collieries, Renishaw Park Colliery, and many others of local interest. I recommend this book to you, as the author's knowledge of and the depth of his research into our local coal mining industry is well illustrated here, and I would also like to think it worthwhile that we should support one of "Sheffield History's Own". I believe that a second book, by the same author, covering the coal mining industries of Rotherham and Barnsley is to be published in a few months' time, and that a third book, with specific emphasis on the Sheffield coal industry is already in the course of preparation and will follow. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mining-Industry-Sheffield-North-Derbyshire/dp/1445639637/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405765607&sr=8-1&keywords=ken+wain

  15. I reckon that's the one - T Bates, 16 Dixon Lane. Does anybody know when it closed? Wazzie Worrall
  16. Perhaps this one, T Bates, 16 Dixon Lane. In the 50's it was next to Woolworth's side entrance and later in the 60's after Woollies moved in to the new shop it was next to the Home Stores side entrance. I was more likely to take a jug to the pub for bitter. http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s42112&pos=50&action=zoom&id=122725
  17. I remember in the mid to late 60's there was an off sales on Dixon Lane which used to sell loose sherry, you had to take your own bottle. I think it was 5shiilings/6pence a pint. My pal Paul and I were regular visitors on a Saturday afternoon. Once we didn't have a bottle, so we went round to Castle House, took a milk bottle out of the crate, washed it in the Big Hole toilet and had it filled with sherry - no top! Wazzie Worrall

  21. Posts about these schools are cropping up in various topics, as VOX suggests "Is it time to record these before they disappear" This text is taken from another topic which quickly went off at a tangent http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/i...ost&p=43611 Extract : Sheffield has one of the best surviving collections of early board schools in England, unparalleled outside London. Following the 1870 Education Act, Sheffield’s newly elected School Board vigorously set about constructing new schools, completing 39 before its demise in 1903. Charles J. Innocent (1839-1901) was appointed architect to the Board and he, together with his partner, Thomas Brown (c. 1845-81) were responsible for 19 of the 22 schools built between 1873-1881. The first of them and, it was claimed by the architects, the first commenced under the 1870 Act, was Newhall School, Sanderson Street. By 1877, attendance at the new schools had reached 31,000. When invited to open Park School in 1875, the Liberal MP David Chadwick remarked "How in the name of fortune the School Board have persuaded the ratepayers of Sheffield to tolerate their extravagance in spending £100,000 in the building of 14 or 15 schools as substantial as so many castles!". Newhall School, Sanderson Street (earliest) Fulwood (1878) Langsett Road (1879) Woodside, Rutland Road (1880) Burgoyne Road (1881) Duchess Road (1883) Huntsmans Gardens (1884) Sharrow Lane (1887) Abbeydale (1890) Gleadless Road, Heeley (1892) and Hunters Bar, Sharrow Vale Road (1893). http://www.lookingatbuildings.org.uk/citie...rd-schools.html http://www.lookingatbuildings.org.uk/citie...and-design.html So 1st lets make a definitive list

Picking this post by Gramps and dropping a copy here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Original post The Sportsman was next door to Leah's Yard in 1850 and there were several other pubs on Coalpit lane, - the Union on the corner with Diivision street, the Yellow Lion, Wellington Tavern, Barley Corn Tavern, Red Lion, and the Chequers Inn. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Sportsman was next door to Leah's Yard in 1850; Sportsmans was standing/occupied in 1833 There were several other pubs on Coalpit Lane, - The Union (occupied in 1818-20 period) on the corner with Division street (this site would later become the Albert; notice the different orientation of the Union on the map, and the Albert which went down Cambridge Street). RSVP occupies the corner of Cambridge Street/Division Street according to PictureSheffield. The Yellow Lion, 1 Coal Pit Lane (became the Cambridge Arms from 1871 onwards), Wellington Tavern (aka the Duke of Wellington) occupied from at least 1820, Barley Corn Tavern (Corner House/Henry's), Red Lion (1822), and the Chequers Inn, also known as the Old Cow; occupied from 1820 onwards.

  23. Sheffield Wadsley Lane, Hillsborough Old Postcard on eBay. Can anyone add any more information please ?
  24. I am sure that some of you will remember that I posted a brief note back in July, letting you know that one of this site's contributors, Ken Wain had recently produced his first book, titled "The Coal Mining Industry of Sheffield and North East Derbyshire", published by Amberley Publishing, [30.06.2014]. I am therefore sure that some of you will be interested to learn that Ken has now produced his second, companion work, titled "The Coal Mining Industry of Barnsley, Rotherham and Worksop", ISBN: 13-978-1445639659, also published by Amberley Publishing, [2014]. Although this second publication is not quite as focused on "Sheffield matters", as you would naturally expect, it is still, an excellent companion to Ken's first work and there is still more than enough consideration given to those collieries that once lay just outside of the city's boundaries, [Kiveton Park, Treeton, Waleswood, Thurcroft, and Dinnington, etc.] to warrant its addition to your collection. Once again, plenty of information, lots of photographs and well worth a read.
  25. Was Pitsmoor Lane always the same. I am just wondering about the numbering. I am trying to work out where Edward Bullivant had his farm. He is down in burial register in 1891 as a market gardener living at 39 Roe Lane but earlier trade directories say he was a farmer of 11 acres and a scissor smith living in Roe Lane (In 1841 was in Pond Street but moved soon after). Was 39 the farm house or did he move along the road. Did the numbering change due to more houses being built as well as Firshill School?
