St Peters Close

If anyone is passing, and has a camera on them I'd like a photo of

The Old Bankers House on Hartshead, it has a tunnel, I think its called St Peters Close, anyway there is supposed to be a bricked-up doorway as part of that tunnel/jennel, I would expect it's on the right hand side.

Strange request, if anyone can help, I'll post the story alongside the picture, so we're looking for a picture of some brick wall with what could be a bricked up doorway (very old).

Many thanks in advance.

Hey up Richard ...... I've had my usual Sunday morning saunter round town today and got you a few photos of Bankers House/St Peters Close.

As you can see the archway is fenced off, chained up and padlocked. Its been like this now for a long time, originally it was for building work, so whether the've forgot about the fencing I'm not sure.

Thank you so much for taking those, the last one is the most interesting. In Reminiscenses of old Sheffield the story is told of the bank going bankrupt and a Derbyshire man knocking on the door on a Sunday; he was told we don't do business on a Sunday; I'm here to make a deposit .... they took his cash.

Supposed to be a side door to the premises, that final photo could well be the original doorstep.

Again, Many Thanks lol
