  15. as photographed in 1930. Hollinsend Sewage Works was situated on the Shire Brook. It was taken over by Sheffield City Council from Handsworth UDC in 1921, and remodelled in 1929. The remodelled works was designed to cope with a daily dry weather flow of 90,000 gallons, all domestic (by way of comparison Blackburn Meadows could cope with 22,000,000 gallons daily, both domestic and industrial). There is much more information which is probably of no interest to anyone other than those (such as me) who have worked in waste water treatment in Sewage Disposal in Sheffield 1886-1930, published by the City Council. Does anyone have any more information about the works, such as the opening date of the first works and the date of closure. (is there a Map Fairy in the house?) ============================================== 1905 Edit: SHB

  18. Hi I'm currently doing my primary research on building conservation issues and why it's so difficult to get people to do it properly or do it at all. I need a few people to complete a questionnaire for me, is there anyone out there interested? should only take about an hour. It doesn't need technical knowledge or be particularly interested in conservation (that would offer an interesting cross section) although I know a lot of you out there will have it, it just needs your personal views. Obviously you will remain anonymous unless you say otherwise. Also if anyone has experience of working in the listing/conservation field that would be really useful info also. Any answers etc will be kept outside the forum. Thank you for reading. K
  19. Hi, We are a group of students at Sheffield University and currently working on a 3rd year group project looking at the legacy of the french town planner/architect Haussmann in British urban environments, in particular Sheffield. We are looking closely at two areas: Fargate and the history of the peace garden/town hall area, and also the Station and Sheffield Parkway/routes into the city. We would appreciate any information you could provide or pictures to help us with our project. Many Thanks, Jim and the Team
  20. I've found 20 or so monochrome photos (below) of farms in the Mayfield Valley taken during the early 1960s. There's only one I can recognise (Hole in the Wall Farm) and wonder if anyone can offer any clues as to their whereabouts. [Ooops! Just noticed that a couple of them are duplicate images]. And somewhere, I have a bunch of photos of the Hammer & Pincers at Bents Green when it was undergoing serious renovation (not just a refurbishment) in the late 1950s or very early 60s. The building was completely gutted and many of it's original features were exposed briefly, including, as far as I can remember, the cruck structure and some of its original features as a smithy. Anybody interested in having me try to find them? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
  21. Hello there... This photo was found among my grandfather's things. No-one in the family recognises where it was taken or indeed anyone in it (I've studied it, I don't think he's there...) It's a grainy old photo but the building behind with the circular window above the door might be familiar to someone? Thanks
  22. Hello all! I am a Master's History student at the University of Sheffield. Currently I am also acting as a researcher for an upcoming project by Sheffield Theatres exploring the history of the canal. I am particularly keen to find out and record people's memories of the canal between 1939-1972. So if anyone has any stories about the canal in this period, whether it be memories of them during the Blitz/woking alongside and around it/the traffic that used to use it, please feel free to share them below! I've linked my colleagues to this little gem of a website too so I'd expect they'll also be keen to ask you all about similar memories relating to their areas of research! Thank you ever so much in advance for any help you can provide! (we also have an email account for our project so if you'd like to get in contact with us further please email sheffieldcanalhistory@gmail.com)
