  1. From Peter Warr's "The Growth of Ranmoor, Hangingwater and Nether Green" : The Stumperlowe Crescent Land Society An area on the west side of the lower section of Water Lane (renamed as Storth Lane in 1886) was made accessible from Graham Road by the construction in 1875 by W.E.Laycock, of Stumperlowe Crescent Road and a bridge (now a listed building) over Water Lane. Although 22 plots were established and sold, these gradually became combined into larger groups (as happened on other estates) and building was again slow; no houses were erected until 1905. (William Edward Lay
  2. Whilst looking at other things in the area on Street View I saw that a road bridge over Storth Lane in Ranmoor was listed. I went and had a look and it's certainly unusual for a Sheffield road bridge! I wonder which road was in place first and why such an ornate structure?
  3. I think there was one in the 1950's part way up Hinde House Lane on the left just where Firth Park woods starts.

    Sheffield Victoria Train Station

    Seems no one has anything to say on this, so here's my take on it. Assuming World War 2 hadn't happened and the railways hadn't fallen into such a dilapidated state, and Labour didn't win the election, they Big Four would probably have survived, at least for a while. By the 1950's travel was changing, with an increase in road freight competition and the rise of the private car. Could the companies have competed any better than BR? Railways had to compete on a national scale as far as freight went, to keep the long haul stuff and let local distributors deal with the town areas. The trouble
  5. Looks like that ome at Barnsley Road has gone, can't see it on Google maps. A lot were removed in the late '60' and early '70's as they were no longer needed, and all were disconnected from the gas mains around that time. Sometime after that someone realised the remaining ones were of historical interest and they were ransferred to another department in the council, so they were no longer maintained, added to which the skills to repair the specialist lanterns were lost as the older guys retired. The Nether Edge ones were re-connected and re-commissioned in the 90's, not an easy job as it turne
  6. My particular lamp ( Barnsley Road, Sheffield Lane Top) doesn't seem to be on the list. I shall have to pay a trip down Memory Lane!

    W Ainsley, Whitehouse Lane. Seen today on Walkley Lane. The 'N' of Lane appears to be upside down?
  10. Can't understand why some of these sewer gas destructor lamps are not Grade II listed when the majority of them are. For example the one at the junction of Worrall Road and Langsett Avenue (pictured) is unlisted as is the one on Stothard Road at Crookes while nearby ones on Rural Lane and Stannington View Road are Listed. Just a thought.

    The Hole in the Wall Pub

    My Father was the Assistant Station Master for a while at Victoria Station and had a regular job within the Wicker Goods Yard in the 50/60's era. I remember him talking about the tunnels and said they were for servicing the arches, but I never was shown them. The tunnels followed the whole length of the Wicker Arches right from Furnival Street all the way out to the last arch somewhere on Brightside Lane. He used to take me through those gates at the bottom of Spital Hill and professed many stories of The Hole In The Wall.. One was related to cowboy films having hideouts called Hole in The wal
  13. This is a transcription of an autobiography, typed by Joseph in 1927 when he was 81. Much of it was included by Jack Branston in his History of Stocksbridge but this is from Joseph's original book and contains other material not included there. The autobiography contains details on Hathersage, Stocksbridge, Deepcar and the Fox works at Stocksbridge, and provides a few personal recollections of individuals as well.

    Myers Lane near Worrall

    Further to previous posts ... I have contacted Malcom Nunn, Archivist for Bradfield Parish, and genuinely nice man, for his comments. He is aware of this stone, and believes the ODC stands for Oughtibridge and District Chapelry, which came about when Oughtibridge Church of the Ascension opened. He also points out that there would be 4 of these stones ... one for each ‘corner’ of the District. He believes the stone on Myers Lane is actually No 4 ... not No 1, and a closer look would seem to bear this out. Malcolm has seen stone No 2 ... at the junction of Oughtibridge Lane and St

    Winter Street Hospital

    Perhaps another connection to try: Agnes Christina Lynch of Lodge Moor Hospital, born 23rd December 1908, was baptised on 3rd January 1909 by J.Kelly at St Vincents. Parents names are Alice Jane and James. Godparents are Joseph and Agnes Hogan. Possibly James and Alice worked at Lodge Moor Hospital before transferring to Winter Street. Possibly Agnes Christina was named after her godmother? Joseph and Agnes Hogan (dob 6 June 1882) were brother and sister - in 1911 living at 48 Edward Street, a stones throw from Winter Street Hospital. Parents were Thomas Hogan and Mary (nee Kava

    Crosspool in the 1960s

    Hi. I've already mentioned in a previous post (Debenham's?) that Mr Mann's daughter is called Susan. Susan lived opposite us on Whirlow Court Road and then moved to Long Line with her Mum and Dad in the late 60's. When she left school which was the private one on Abbey Lane (now flats) she worked in the Record Bar in Debenham's. One of those record bars where you could select a disc and then listen to it on headphones in one of the booths. I've not seen Susan since the late 60's so I've no idea where she is now? However, it is interesting to note that the fish mongers on Sharrow Vale Road

    The hunt for the mysterious Garden Gate Inn pub...

    It is irregular for beerhouses (and this was a beerhouse throughout the era discussed) to be noted on Ordnance Survey mapping prior to the post WWII surveys. In the Sheffield surveys of the 50's (1:1250 & 1:2500) they were, though the designation of PH and BH was often done incorrectly and is not a reliable indicator of the type of licence held. Before that you may get some beerhouses noted in areas devoid of fully licensed premises, generally rural, and where there is enough space for required lettering. In built up areas not all Public Houses were noted on the 25 inch series maps. A hand

    The George At Tinsley

    From the OP's description this can only really be one pub, but it's not in Sheffield and it's not called the George. The house in question, I believe, must be the Temple Hotel, Templeborough, now in use as offices, though stll extant as a building. I think the confusion regarding the name may have arisen because the Temple bore a certain resemblance to another pub relatively proximate to it. The Royal George on Pitt Street, just off the top of Psalters Lane & Ferham Road, Holmes, was a larger pub but after the removal of it's front chimney and the covering of it's brickwork did

    Wood Lane Camp (resettlement camp)

    from: SYMPATHY, ANTIPATHY, HOSTILITY. BRITISH ATTITUDES TO NON-REPATRIABLE POLES AND UKRAINIANS AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR AND TO THE HUNGARIAN REFUGEES OF 1956 by JANINE HANSON Submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at The University of Sheffield, Department of History June 1995 full document here: http://etheses.whiterose.ac.uk/14465/2/364384Vol2.pdf In Sheffield it was, at first, feared that the greatest obstacle to the employment of Poles in local industry would be an accommodation shortage. Approximately 200 Poles were in residence at the temporary Wood Lane Resettle
  20. In 1945/46 after the Second World War people from Italy moved to Sheffield and went into a resettlement camp called ‘Wood Lane Camp’ in Sheffield. Some records have this camp as being in Wadsley Can anyone shine a light on Wood Lane Resettlement Camp and can we have as much info as possible please? It’s for someone researching their fathers movements What do we know about this mystery place?

    More Parkway Questions

    The red brick detached house you mention that was built by the Cowlishaws opposite the Manor Lodge, castle as we knew it, I remember that very well from childhood, in the late forties and fifties to I don’t know when, Jimmy Childs was well known in Sheffield for his demolition business, he also had a yard just further on Manor Lane on the left towards City Road. Seeing it now on google earth, ( don’t actually know the year) but it looks shocking with its overgrown trees and hedges, in the back garden was a fantastic greenhouse which was always well kept.

    Other aerial shots from 1927 also shows that only one lane has been built. No Tram posts or tracks yet either!

    Circa 1954. Map showing Eyre Street, Duke Lane, it looks to be prior to T C Vere being built (area marked). https://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html#/Map/435973/387740/13/101329
