    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

    Sheffield Coal Mines

    Most of the East Birley Pit site was cleared a long, long time ago, but some surface structures still remain. I think that what does remain was part of the former pit workshops and that it was also formerly used as the training unit for the "Bevan Boys", although I am not fully sure about that particular fact. Anyhow for years, it remained in the hands of a private company and I believe was a small engineering, or electrical works. The building still exists, although it now seems disused, but it is well protected by a high, stout, galvanised compound and so, may still be used for storage

    From the Independent August 28 1847: “In the case of the death of Joseph Finningley, caused by falling into the shaft of a coalpit, at Crosspool, the property of Mr. W. Spooner, it should have been stated that the property is in the occupation of a tenant named Gosney, who removed his working tools only the day before the inquest, and who was under a contract to keep up the fences.” William Gosney had a coal pit at Clough Fields (near Delf House) in 1844 and was the victim of a theft of coal from his pit-hill. There was another Joseph Finningley living at Crosspool – he also was not

    Seldom Seen Engine House

    From the Independent February 27 1864: Accident at Plumbley New Colliery, Mosbro''—On Tuesday, a mishap occurred at Plumbley New Colliery, belonging to Mr. Rhodes, of Beighton. The pit is about half a mile from the engine-house, and the coal is brought from the mouth of the pit by a truck, which holds nine corves and a barrel of water, up an incline plane by means of a stout steel rope. At noon, a truck, laden as above, was being brought up, and had almost reached ite destination, when the engine-tenter (only about a week employed) gave the rope a check, which snapped it in two. The t

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
  10. 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

    Coal Pit Lane

    Yes more or less but still you've got Coal Pit Lane much further down ? But then again, in those days I suppose everything was more spread out and not as congested as today.
  18. Wellington (existing data), Coal Pit Lane, Elias Shirt. SS8 68/141 Pages 69 and 70 appear to have a problem. That's me lot for today, 11 postings - taken all day to find/post. Somebody please remind me why I/we do this ... Added to A-Z
  19. George Taylor, 17 Coal Pit Lane Hone ?? Definitely says Hone - in between Hide and Hop alphabetically.
  20. Street scavenging appears to be but imperfectly applied at Sheffield. The streets are partially swept before the shops are open in the morning; consequently, when these are to be cleaned out, the sweepings which are thrown upon the streets remain all day long, to be trodden into a thick greasy crust. Of this we had ocular demonstrations during our long perambulations of almost every street and road in the town. That some scavenage is actually performed, we are convinced, as we get near one of the four great deposit heaps of the Corporation. Proceeding down Victoria Road past the Cattle Mark
