Normanton Street, Brightside Bierlow,


Recommended Posts

Ok I found it - via the index to the Geographia Streetplan. It's near Burngreave Cemetery, on Map 50 in your large scale 1950s OS maps.

Excellent resource chaps!

Cheers, Chris

Pop into Joseph Yardley's (Shopkeeper and beer retailer, No. 2, 1893) and get me a pint and a loaf please or Joseph Barretta's at 24 (Shopkeeper and beer retailer) if it's closer for you.

Any evidence to back that up please Steve ? Any directory entries/census information - anyone ? Could just be lack of space on the map and an abbreviation ....

just a thought.

Normanton Street was formally called 'Norman Street', if you take a look on the Bacon's map.

No. 24 would have been nearest - my Grandfather was born at no. 23 where his mother was a dressmaker.
