  3. I had a walk on Broad Lane today, to take a photo of what was the house that the Duke Of Norfolk had built for his eldest son in 1704, its listed and its great little house. I had a chat with the present owner who furnished me with the info. Its also great to see the cobbles of the livestock market still in situ, unfortunately cars spoilt the full view of them.

    Lovetot Road

    This question arose from consideration of another recently bumped topic, in which the former terrace on Lovetot Road, behind the Woodbourne Hotel, came up. Why is it that there are two substantially detatched, but aligned, parts of Lovetot Road? I don't think there is any indication that the road can have existed prior to the canal, in which case the two parts can never have been connected. However, was there ever an intention to connect them? It seems from mapping of the 1890's that there was an extension of the road to the canal edge on the northern side in that era and perhaps some provisio
  5. Hi Some further news. I have received the 1949 death certificate for John Rose (as identified by Edmund) and it is the correct one with more information. He died 22/10/1949 age 76 and his occupation as Licensee. Cause of death cardiac arrest and chronic bronchitis. Reported by his widow Alice Rose (nee Cheetham) and the address is the Wellington Inn, Westgate, Rotherham! So at least 20 years as a licensee. It was operational from 1909, a Bentley pub to start with and closed in 2011. It is now a Dance Studio and the pictures show a fine Edwardian building. I have not found any further

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Having looked at several maps in date order I reckon that:- 1854 Bents Lane (now called Brightside Lane) ran from Savile Street East along the top of Newhall Road to Brightside Bridge where there was a junction where the Bridge Inn used to be. Brightside Lane (now called Meadowhall Road) ran NE along the northern bank of the river to Brightside Mill. Mill Lane (now called Weedon Street) ran from Attercliffe Road to the junction at the Bridge Inn. 1890 Mill Lane is now called Weedon Street. Bents Lane is now called Brightside Lane and ends at the tram terminus at the side of the Bridg

    Lovetot Road

    I agree what a fantastic set of maps I believe the canal near Bacon Lane bridge received a direct hit on the night of (I think) the first Blitz.
  8. I have found 14 model railway wagons (though two are different makes of the same wagon) that appear to represent real wagons owned by Sheffield Companies. But did the real life wagons actually exists? Or where they made up rather like the Redgates Wagon made by Hornby (see Redgates thread). If each of the companies represented did exist, did they use railway wagons regardless of the model status? If the wagons were real, what date period are we talking for each? The companies: 1 Nunnery 2 Ketton Cement 3 General Refractories 4 Amoco 5 Longbottom &

    St. Michael's Catholic Cemetery

    Thomas Armitage of 20 Whitehouse Lane was a reserve player of The Wednesday Football Club. He seriously injured a kidney while playing in the Wharncliffe Charity Cup-tie on Christmas Day morning 1923. He was taken to the Royal Infirmary where an operation was carried out on Boxing Day night. He passed away at noon on the 30th. Armitage was 26 years old, date of birth 19th December 1897, son of Herbert, who worked as a gas purifier. Thomas joined the Navy in May 1916 and his first ship was the Victory - he served on others but finished his service in 1920 again on the Victory. Thomas joine
  10. Does anyone know anything about what looks (on Google Earth) like a derelict Pavillion on playing fields behind the Mount Pleasant Inn between Derbyshire Lane, Warminster Road, Gordon Avenue and the new new houses where the Dairy used to be off Hemsworth Road?

    Royal Infirmary Hospital

    In an earlier review of Hospital requirements it was proposed to build a new hospital for the south of the City. 190 acres of land was acquired at Coal Aston under the Public Health Act of 1875 and, in a strange twist of fate, the proposed Sheffield Airport was then planned to be built there. By 1933 priorities had change...and the War intervened . Neither was built...the land being used for municipal housing. As an aside, the Northern General is a rambling "Ponderosa"...confusing to the occasional vistor and guaranteed to increase blood pressure if attempting to park a car!😉
  12. 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. Joseph Sheldon: Reminiscences. 1845 - 1927 Early Days 1. The writer of these pages was born at Booths, Hathersage, on September 28th, 1845, being the sixth son in a fa
  13. I have picked up in my studies another person involved in the slave trade who lived in Sheffield and became rich from it and that was Edward Bennet, who lived in Coal Pit Lane and who built a sugar refinery. His sugar came from Liverpool, but he is also listed as an investor in a slaving ship along with Thomas Staniforth. His became a preacher and built a Chapel at the same time he was importing sugar from Liverpool. His father was an early Methodist and friends with Whitefield one of the leading abolitionists. So one wonders what the conversations were like in their family. When Edward died

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Sorry to labour the point, particularly as it is now evident that it is not relevant to your original enquiry, but this is not a matter of conjecture. Weedon Street, the street running from Carbrook & Tinsley to Brightside, was known as Brightside Lane in the late 1860s & early 1870s. It may not appear on preceding or subsequent OS Maps as such but it does on architects plans for official submission for developments in that part of Carbrook as well as magistrates' records precisely of that period. It was known as such, very reasonably, because it was the lane that ran to Brightside.

    Brightside Lane - houses

    The oldest directory I have access to which includes Brightside Lane is 1879. There are no odd-numbered properties on Brightside Lane. However, on maps from the 1850s and 1860s what is now Brightside Lane is named as Bent Lane, and there is a Brightside Lane which heads north-east from Brightside village alongside the river. This later became Meadow Hall Road. https://maps.nls.uk/view/102345199#zoom=5&lat=1356&lon=2504&layers=BT Pure guesswork, but i wonder if 5 Brightside Lane in the early 1870s was somewhere near Brightside Bridge, perhaps one of the row of h

    Could this be 'Empire Day' celebrations ?
  19. John William Rose is my partner's grandfather and we are trying to obtain further information. From family material and the A-Z Index of Pubs John Rose was the licence of the Royal Hotel, 65, Earl Street in 1930 until 1936. We don't know whether he was there before this date. In the 1939 Register he is the licence of the Rivelin, Tofts Lane, but we do not know for how long.. His daughter Ida Clixby (nee Rose) was the licence of The Globe Tavern, 107, Porter St., in 1939. In the A-Z she is shown as being there 1937-1942 being a beer retailer only after 1938. The oub was bombed in

    Tram Locations

    First picture is definitely Vulcan Road, taken during the war, as the front fender is painted white and the tram has a headlamp mask. Looking at the second picture, it looks like a posed photo so I don't think the destination blinds will help. The tram seems to be on reserved track to one side of the road, so that makes it either Abbeydale Road near Millhouses Park, or Abbey Lane, but a quick look on Google maps doesn't immediately throw up anything obvious.

    Picture Sheffield Manor picture?

    Thanks to the air photo I think it's Prince of Wales Road and we are stood at the junction with Fitzhubert Road. If you look past the truck you can see a stone wall and that must have been a field wall from the farm days. As the Boot Houses were not built or just off shot. Then yes it's around 1925 for certain or earlier. Going on the location I would say the pylon structure could be the trees on Windy House lane around the pond that was there. Some of the houses on the Fairleigh side look still under construction, with windows not in place.

  25. Hello All, On Abbey Lane near the junction with Abbeydale Road South is this marker. It's close to the railway and I've seen similar railway company property markers. Is that what this is? I could only see one.
