  10. I had a nosey along the current Jew Lane the other day, walked past it loads of times but never along it. Im wondering if it used to be more of a thoroughfare than it is now? Anyone know anything of its history? From other threads there was a Jehu Lane which was where Fitzalan Sq is now, which currently contains all the bookmakers. Im referring to the current Jew Lane that has an entrance on Fitzalan Sq that runs between what is now the Coral bookmakers and the building that used to be the Blue Bel pub, and an entrance on Commercial St.. Heres a view from Commercial St
  11. I’m researching Sheffield United's Bramall Lane and would like to explore the history and folklore of the area around the ground. Are there any interesting stories (people, families, companies, works, pubs, local legend etc.) that have emanated from the area over the last few centuries? The history of the Bramall Lane ground itself is well documented but the lesser known past of the surrounding neighbourhoods might be better illuminated by the collective knowledge of local historians, researchers, enthusiasts and residents. Thanks in advance for your time and any responses. Inci

  14. Nathan J. Staniforth

    #1 Brook Lane, Hackenthorpe

    It appears that my Staniforth family lived at #1 Brook Lane throughout most of the 1800s and into the very early 1900s, would anyone have a directory that would show the residential history. The road is in Hackenthorpe which obviously was part of Beighton Parish before 1900. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Came across this postcard on eBay and decided to look on google maps at how that scene looks now..
  16. Anyone remember Peats Butchers at number 5 Wadsley Lane opposite the Park Hotel near Hillsborough?
  17. I'm after some help please. Paddock Farm at Lane Top was diagonally opposite the Pheasant. I wonder if anyone knows the history of it as I can find little beyond it being a racehorse training operation, with a St Leger winner, and visited by Lillie Langtry and the Prince of Wales. My reason for interest is that I'm trying to find the location of a house called "Tythe Lathe". This was built by John Wilkinson of Crowder House in the late 1700s when he moved out of Crowder, with a view to his wife Mary living there after his death (John died in 1812 and Mary in1835). An agreement was sig
  18. Part of a garden wall on Abbey Lane. An old spelling? Beauchiefe/Beauchieff. Looks old.
  19. While walking down Glossop Road my eyes caught this old street sign, seems to me the new signs were erected some time ago are not quite right, I hate the way names are altered without checking first.

  24. Where could I find information about a death of a Sheffield Utd fan, while at a football match. Alfred McCarthy died from a heart attack in 1960 at the ground. He was aged 70, he worked in a steel factory as a time keeper.
  25. My father who died in 1959 had a friend who attended this church. I think his name was Milner (could be Billy or Tommy?) I know he lived on Homestead Road at Sheffield Lane Top. Is there anyone left who might remember the family?
