  1. Where is this location I think based on what is missing from the photo that it is 1950's
  2. I was in Fulwood village the other day & got to pondering the history of the area of shops in the above area. The southern parade seems to be fairly modern (50s, 60s?) and has a modern block of flats behind them. What was here before the shops were built? Looking at the Co-op building the brick-work of the rear portion seems significantly older than the front bit. Anyone know the history of this building?
  3. Hi everyone, Just a quick question. I have a relative that says they lived on Granville Lane. I have looked in the map section, but cannot find any reference to Granville Lane. Was there such a Lane and if so , where was it please?
  4. Generous Act On Saturday the 18th inst about three o clock in the afternoon a waggon heavily loaded with large and excellent coats drawn by 50 men colliers with a boy sitting on the top waving an emblem of the British flag arrived at the Infirmary Sheffield. Dr Earnest, on enquiring the cause of this proceeding, learnt that these coals were the first taken from the new pit near the canal basin and that they had been sent to this Charity as a present by the Sheffield Coal Company; Messrs Holy, Wilson, Dunn and Co. This generous act and the manner of doing it are well worthy of public attentions and honourable record
  5. Hi ! could anyone please help me to find out who now actualy owns this derelict site now, as i would like to contact them by letter/phone. any help much appreciated thanks . kevin
  6. Am I right in thinking that this may be catchbar lane...Al
  7. I was born 1950 and brought up in Thrush Street, Walkley. From our back yard we had a view over the valley to Stannington. As a kid we had a perfect view to a well just off Wood Lane. It hypnotised me as I had quite a few childerens books where wells ere depicted and this well at wood lane was perfect. Brick or stone built with cranking handle and canopy over the top. Never thought much about it from circa 1958 until I was to start Myers Grove in 1961 as we had moved to Crookesmoor. It was the first thing I looked for on my arrival but it had been demolished. Anyone remember it or shed any light ?
  8. we went to this school during 1955 to 1959 Brian Shaw & Jean Quibell married 1964 also went to beck road Does anyone remember us At bt gpo or hadfields osbourne
  9. Is there an easy way to find where old streets other than scanning the old maps? Is there an a-z or similar for each or any of the census years? I'm trying to find New George Lane from the 1851 Census (St Mary's Ecclesall Brierlow, Sheffield), but have a number of other roads I could do with finding too. Just thought there might be an a-z somewhere.
  10. Leppings Lane is one of those stand-out road names in Sheffield, mainly becoming famous for being the road to the away-end of Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium (and later, the venue by which the Hillsborough Disaster occured). The name of the road came about from around the end of the 19th Century, when it was simply a dirt-path which had to cross the River Don that runs through Sheffield. In order to get from one side to the other, you had to navigate the 'Leaping' (Or 'Lepping') stones. in the picture below (dated 1881), you'd be looking from what is now the Catch-Bar Lane junction area, down towards the dog-leg near the stadium. Hillsborough stadium itself will be erected towards the top-right area of the picture.
  11. These are some of Broad Lane's 1868 victuallers with no pub name. Number 67 Charles Ledger 93 Henry Coward 121 George Jenkins 6 James Spooner [ beerhouse ] 44 Samuel Shaw 50 Henry Pendleton
  12. Hi there folks, could anyone possibly tell me if I'm right on this one please. I'm looking at the 1871 census for head of household, William Bancroft. (His daughter Eliza is my Great Great Grandmother, she married Henry Rolley.) The address is Shude Lane, Forge Yard, Sheffield. I've found Shude Hill and what was Ponds Forge on google maps and on the 1800s map I've found Shude Hill and The Ponds. So, on the 1800s map, would one of the little side streets off Shude Hill be Shude Lane? Also, on Eliza Bancrofts birth certificate, the address is given as Forge Yard, Forge Lane. Sub-district of South Sheffield. Is this roughly all the same place? Thanks for any info or verification. Doris..
  13. There is a picture in Sheffield Libraries of some old cottages that were next to Bishops House. The photo was dated 1928. Does anyone know when they were demolished? I think they were demolished because of road widening. I know the cottages were originally part of Meersbrook Estate and were rented out by the Shores. I have a 1806 map and rent book to that effect. What I want to know is if I can get any information about the interior of the cottage, any demolition photos?
  14. ....just thought i'd mention that the old Vineys Shop premises , which is now a private home is currently up for sale ! This place used to be a well known and invaluble place for the locals and was open daily till 10pm , till its closure around the mid 80's. Although i popped in reguarly , i can still remember the old Dad who helped out , and Mike Viney , one of two sons, who always wore a jumper or t-shirt with the Blades logo on , and how the building was painted red and white as they were all big Blades fans ! I also remember it being one of the first shops to sell the new "Slush Puppie" ice drinks in the late 70's. Heres the ad .... http://bit.ly/fWEv7g
  15. Broughton Lane, close to Sheffield Arena, holds a dark secret. It is named after a mail robber called Spence Broughton, thought to be the last man to be gibbeted in Yorkshire. In the bloodthirsty age of the eighteenth century, the gibbet was the usual punishment for convicted murderers. After being hanged, the felon's body faced further humiliation by being suspended in a gibbet, a open cage-like structure, where it was left to the mercy of the elements and, no doubt, a few hundred onlookers who had turned out for the occasion. Lincolnshire born Broughton started out as a farmer but a gambling habit caused him to leave his wife and family for the cock-fighting scenes of Sheffield, Grantham and Derby. Here he met John Oxley and in February 1791 the pair conspired to rob the Sheffield to Rotherham mail. During the robbery, at Ickles near Attercliffe Common, Broughton and Oxley stole the post boy's mailbag, but the only item of value was a French bill of exchange for £123 from a London merchant. Legend has it that the hapless robbers had to use a French dictionary to find out how to cash the bill. The pair were arrested the following October in London. Broughton was sent to Newgate Prison but Oxley was taken to Clerkenwell where he managed to escape, leaving Broughton to face the music alone. At Broughton's trial, in York, Mr. Justice Buller passed the death sentence and asked that the body be suspended in a gibbet. Broughton was hanged on April 14, 1792. It is said that while on the scaffold Broughton asked onlookers to pray for his soul and remarked that his sentence was just. Two days later his body arrived in Sheffield and was put in its gibbet on Attercliffe Common. It is estimated that 40,000 people visited the common on that day to look at the gruesome spectacle. By 1817 (25 years later!) Broughton's tattered clothes and bones were still visible. The gibbet was not taken down until 1827 when the owner of the field where it stood complained of over enthusiastic sightseers trespassing on his property. And what of Broughton's accomplice, John Oxley, who escaped without trial? It seems he also met a sticky end - his body was discovered on Sheffield's Loxley Moor in January 1793.

  17. As I passed the Hallamshire Hotel on Lydgate lane today, I noticed that it is to be demolished to make way for houses and appartments, on closer inspection there is a single story building behind the pub that looks much older than the actual pub, I know there was a quarry and ropeworks close by and wonder if this building could be a remnant from those days, does anyone have a pre 1900s map that shows the area? The Pub is on the junction of lydgate lane and Rygate Crescent.
  18. I would be interested to learn something about the coal riots of around 1893, especially those that were connected with the Newton Chambers Collieries in the Chapeltown/High Green area. I especially wonder if the events led to a lot of miners leaving the district and having to move to other pits.
  19. I lived on Abbey Lane until 1968 when I was 5 and remember being taken to a sweet shop at the Chesterfield Rd end of Abbey Lane.It may have been as far as where The KFC is now.I can't find any photos of this anywhere;it's been bugging me for years.Anyone help please?
  20. Can anyone remember the cricket match played under floodlights at Bramall Lane in September 1981. I was there but after all this time I cant remember the teams!! But I have found a photo that we took, pity we were sitting so far back!!
  21. FALL IN THE PRICE OF COAL. The demand for house coal at Sheffield is extremely slack, and the agents of several of the collieries have reduced their prices to the extent of from 1s. 6d. to 2s 6d. per ton. The opinion entertained by many agents is that by Spring, fuel will be comparatively cheap. http://www.cultrans.com/
