    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

  5. Hello everyone! I'm doing research on behalf of Tapton Hall about their history for the upcoming Heritage Day events. I'm mainly focusing on the Shore/Nightingale Family. Vickers Family and Wilson Family alongside the Masonic history. I have most of the information, but thought it was worth asking to see if there was anything I could add! If anyone has any information about these families, or any personal connection to the Hall then please let me know. Especially looking for photographs, maps or items which could be displayed.
  6. This pub stood on the corner of fell st & brightside lane may have been bombed or more likley demolished any info or a photo please
  7. Parker's Lane car park, which is on the corner of Whitham Rd and Parker's Lane, to the right of the Nottingham House pub, also has an area of grass with mini stone terracing for sitting on (I presume). There are also garden gateposts (see pic) with fairly recent railings with inlays which have various items embedded such as open razor, fork etc. Does anyone have any info on all or parts of this site ? If the gates led to a house it would be approximately numbered between 160-140 Whitham Rd. Cheers.

  9. Retirement brings on many extramural activities and having nearly completed my bucket list before the next bucket I see is the one I kick, I thought it prudent to see who's left out of my old class and where and WHO they are now ( many of the girls will obviously have a change of name ).. See link below http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=printdetails&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;m00003 A few of our motley crew, I have sincerely missed since I left and I curiously would like to see how we all did after Smiley's J4 class and the ensuing 11+ dispersal.
  10. Dose anyone remember their Gran having a container of 'COAL CRYSTALS'. My Gran had them in an up turned glass jelly mould, on top of her big radio, sat on a cupboard. ( I guess out of the way of little fingers ) Every so often she would get them down to 'feed them', she used an Eye Dropper, with some sort of liquid in, which I was allowed to drip over the Crystals, then we put drips of Red and Blue ink on the top. A couple of weeks later, we would get them down to find more beautiful Pink and Violet Crystals had grown from the coal in the bottom. It always fascinated me how it happened.
  11. Does anyone remember the people in this photo? One is Big Ada from the old market on Dixon Lane Any memories of these people at all?

  18. The Norfolk Arms, Manor Lane, SheffieldHunting was the major relaxation of the wealthy classes in medieval Britain. There was little else for them to do TV was still 600 years away and United were still in the Vauxhall Conference League. For this reason the Earls of Shrewsbury built Sheffield Manor as a small hunting lodge before greatly enlarging it in the 16th century as their permanent dwelling. Sanitary conditions at Sheffield Castle had become unbearable, and they were seeking sanctuary in the peaceful lands overlooking the town. The surrounding area was a deer park and offered relief fro
  19. Having been lucky enough to have been selected by Jason Dickinson to be in The Owls 150th anniversary book, 'WAWAW fans memories through the generation', I was quite fascinated to read the first person mentioned was a Mr Tom Wharton.... (Mr. T. Wharton from Jason Dickinson's book) “It seems fitting that the first supporter profile should actually be a dedicated fan called Tom Wharton, who passed away in 1933 after devoting his life to Wednesday. The following is an interview with Tom in the Sheffield mail in 1926”: “Surely old Tom Wharton is The Wednesday's

    Washing day on Woodgrove Lane

  22. Hi I’m doing some research into my family history and wondered if anyone has any information on the “George and Dragon” that used to stand at 93 Broad Lane. I believe it operated as a pub between 1825 and 1958. The building was later demolished and the site where it stood now seems to be a car-park. My family connection is that in about 1903 it was taken over by my Great-Great-Aunt Norah and her husband Thomas Crosby (they had previously run the ‘Union’ around the corner on Scotland Street) Thomas died in 1906 and Norah was remarried to a man named John Gaffey, John died around
