  3. 36 Trippet Lane, Charles Pearson - illegible but its the Seven Stars
  4. I have a very vague memory as a young child of being shown (for all of one minute) some kind of muddy spring between Crosspool and Crookes. This would have been about 1979-1981. It wasn’t until I was a bit older and saw some TV pictures of foreign hot springs in grey mud (I think in New Zealand) that I understood what I had been looking at that day. Is my memory playing tricks on me? If there were hot springs or geysers in Crookes we’d all know about it surely?!! As I recall we were on a school trip to the Headland Road cemetery, when an allotment holder got chatting to our teacher. Some moments later we were invited by the teacher to follow this gentleman through a locked gate into his allotment (which must have adjoined the cemetery – hence me assuming it was in the Marsh Lane allotments, possibly the other cluster nearer Clough Fields, but I think we were near the chapel building when we were led away so I think more likely the former location). The allotment was fenced off with closed boards up to at least 6 ft high so this site wouldn’t be visible to the public; I can’t remember whether, once through the gate, it was the first allotment or whether we has to follow a short path through a couple of others to get to the one in question. I know that I didn’t imagine being told by our teacher that this was a spring, and I can definitely remeber seeing somthing bubbling in the mud. But I’ve never found anything on old maps or heard anyone else mention it, so I wonder if it was more like a fractured drain or something eaually unremarable? I think the idea of it being a steaming hot geothermal spring is my boyhood imagination running away with itself. What is interesting is that the old St Antony’s Well is not that far from here, effectively on the same headland; so there is a precedent for water coming out of the ground in this vicinity.
  5. On the right going down pack horse lane there was 3 rows of huts that were used as housing. These were around in the 1920s & early 30s. When the new housing estate was built ( jeffcock rd / south rd / vickers rd / greno view rd / miles rd / holland rd green gate lane ) at the start of the 1930s. The families in these huts were re housed into them. These huts were knocked down not long after. point on map below
  6. No keeper, but I can't place it - Help ! (please)
  7. Anyone remember 'Chuck Ranch' on Holme Lane at Hillsborough ? Burnt to the ground in the 1980's it had the schoolkids of the day coming up with their own stories as to why/how it happened but that's not the point of this post I'm looking for photos of the place either internal or external pics Anyone know how to find some pics of this infamous diner ?
  8. Rodley Lane ran from Leadmill Road to Suffolk Lane. I always assumed that it was named after the Rodley Inn. The earlist trace of the name Rodley Inn seems to be the 1891 Census, however Rodley Lane appears as far back as the 1871 Census. Where did the name Rodley Lane derive from.
  9. I have been researching my family tree in high green & come across a road thats not around any more. Its name is Robin Lane At Mortomley Hill. I have talked to some one who believes it was on the land of mortomley hall. & the access road to it was from the start of jeffcock road. There is still a short access road there but its been blocked off just before the start of mortomley park/greengate lane park. Map Below.
  10. why was the metodist chapel on wicobank lane moved to wasley hall in 1950 was it hit during the war

  11. Does anyone know where they met in Fig Tree Lane? I know 13 was a ladies school but other than that I don't know.
  12. I think the map that I need is SK3487 (maybe) - but the forum search feature doesn't seem to be working. Can anyone suggest where to find it ? TIA. Dave.
  13. Any ideas what this might be ? It is on (or just off) Ronksley Lane at Rivelin. Somewhere around here near the bend Satellite view Spotted it over the wall about half way up on the right. Almost completely overgrown now. It is a concrete dome with as far as I can see no entrance apart from a small brick slot on top. The whole thing is surrounded by (or it seems) clad in a neat stone wall which has partially collapsed on the lower side. A short piece of broken pipe is visible leading in (or out) on the lower side. There is a small stream running down the side of it, but water doesn't appear to go inside at any point. It resembles a pill box, but is far too small and (one would think) completely in the wrong place. Very difficult to get anything like a clear picture because of the trees.
  14. What about this for a lively Beer House ? 1850 Sheffield Independent Newspaper
  15. I know Ive mentioned this before, but after seeing the site the other day, i thought it would be better under the title " Sheffield places - now gone " I went to have a look at the old ww1 gun site saturday, only to find out most of it has either been bulldozed or filled in, only the circular gun pit still survives intact.....up to now! To get a good idea what the site used to look like, if you go on google earth, look at Manor Cottage Farm, the site is at the side of Manor Lane in between the farm house and the road then use the time line to 2005, the whole area is in a shadow, so all the plateaus, gun pit and other dug outs are clearly visible. im just glad i took plenty of photos of it last year.
  16. Found an old form the other day that was handwritten and tricky to decipher the address, but it says something like Caupes Buildings, Pothouse Lane, Attercliffe. It's from about 1880. I think Pothouse Lane is now Coleridge Road (?), but does anyone know of the "Caupes" Buildings?
  17. Has anybody got a map of Abbey Lane cemetary please..... I have just found out that one of my Willoughby ancesters is buried there. (Can I cancel the above request as I have found a map of Abbey Lane Cemetary on the Sheffield Indexers website.) Edit Also is there a searchable database about Sheffield cemetary occupants in general because there are some relations that I would like to know where they are buried. Thanks in anticipation .....
  18. Any ideas as to where this might be ?
  19. Did there used to be a lodging house, hospital or workhouse at 38 Granville Lane? I am researching my family tree and I have found that two members of the family died at this address but I aslo found that there were many others of other families died at this address in the same era. It seemed to house quite a few people at the same time.
  20. Can anybody tell me the location of Jehu Lane as I am currently arguing over it's location. I have 3 maps stating it was south of the Bull Stake but somebody else is arguing that it ran east of Fitzalan Square. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. In 1904, my Grand-Parents, Harry and Minnie Hague and family, are described as living at, 8 Court 2 Eyre Lane. Not living in Sheffield, this has presented me with a couple of problems. First., how do I read this ?. Is it '8' 'Court 2' 'Eyre Lane' or '8 Court' '2 Eyre Lane', if you know what I mean. Second, would it be possible to obtain a map, or photograph showing this address ? Bert
  22. In the 1881 census there is a Elshaw b1840 in Sheffield who was a steward. He lived with his wife on Derbyshire Ln. On a online old-map.co.uk map of the area of 1882 there appears to be a Working Mens Club on Derbyshire Ln at Norton Woodseats. I could be wrong, eyes are not what they used to be. Could it be what is now Eyre and Baxters Anybody any ideas
