Hillsborough Barracks


Sheffield History

Recommended Posts

Sorry Paul, I've had a good trawl through the Picture sheffield collection under everything I can think of, with no luck. lots of pics of the front of the barracks but nothing of the Penistone rd side. I usd to pass the flats on the bus in the 60's and 70's and they always looked very grim.

Anyway, welcome to the forum, and keep watching. Even if there's no immediate response things often get picked up later.

Hi Paul, you might try contacting the Hillsborough Local History group via their website -

http://www.hillsboroughowlertonlocalhistory.co.uk/local_history_group/

I believe they have a good collection of photos.

Hi paul ..... Regards the photos of the flats ..... I know at one time "Burton Street Project" had photos on their website of the flats and the barracks but they are no longer shown, also their website has got a new name , its now: http://www.burtonstreet.co.uk/ so it might help if you contact them. I'm not sure if they also did'nt produce a small book regarding the area and its residents.

Has bayleaf mentioned they looked pretty grim (from the top deck of the No.10) surrounded by a high stone wall, built in rows 2 storeys high with metal staircases and if I remember correctly a small children's playground.

1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census for the barracks.

On ancestry tap in Sheffield as town and barracks as key word. On the 1881 census tap in Nether Hallam. Who's for getting the whole lot up on here!!

Dean.

I can only get 1881 to work ?? Finds 941 people but zero matches for 1871, 1891 and 1901 - so what am I doing wrong ?

That's the kind of really, really stupid idea that I would come out with ! Brilliant idea !!!

(Got 1871 to work by searching for Nether Hallam, Barracks0

Where are the previous records hiding then ?

Hi Richard,

just tried it again and got what i got earlier.

To reiterate -

in the search field for town i enter Sheffield.

In the search filed for keyword i enter barracks.

1871 census gives me 984 results.

1881 you have got

1891 gives me 873 results

1901 gives me 1,003 results

I know it's a mad idea but to have all that in one little pinned package would be great for the site. It's ok just listing the names but i think we need all the details to have a comprehensive listing. Now what do we/you/us do !

Ask for Volunteers, thats usually the first step ... skills required access to Ancestry, cut and paste into Excel (looks a mess but I can deal with it from there), email Excel file to SheffieldHistory.co.uk - no Excel expertise required.

then

Get the records, only about 4,000 there (given the size of your War efforts and our collective Pubs it's nowt)

List 'em alphabetically by surname, by letter and by year (calculate age also to help people searching for relatives)

1871 A Surnames

1871 B Surnames etc etc

1881 A Surnames

1881 B Surnames etc etc

1891, 1901 ...

hunt around for 1841 (Old or Horse Barracks), 1851 (new Barracks I think), 1861

Download all Census images; approximately 40-50 images per year

Plonk images into appropriate year, anyone interested in a particular surname can look on the images to get family details

Job done.

Let me know when you've got it all finished Dean he he

SHEFFIELD BARRACKS

We may expect now, within a short time, to see the commencement of a long talked of, but longer needed, new barracks at Sheffield.

The existing barracks were among the first that were erected in the country.

They were intended as a temporary experiment; yet they have continued to be occupied till they have become almost ruinous.

The new barracks will be about half a mile further from the town.

Apiece of land has been purchased just beyond the Owlerton toll-bar, containing about 25 acres, which has the advantage of fronting to the new Oughtibridge road on one side, and to the old Owlerton road on the other.

It is situated on the hill side, affording every facility for excellent drainage.

The plan is to divide it into three terraces.

The first of these will be occupied by the mess establishment and officers' quarters, which will face the Oughtibridge road, and form the front of the barracks.

From the back of the building, the two lower terraces will be overlooked.

The second terrace will be occupied by two ranges of quarters for infantry, a hospital and a spacious parade ground.

The third terrace will contain four ranges of quarters for cavalry, with stables, enclosing enclosing a parade ground.

The whole ground is irregularly shaped, and of this circumstance advantage has been taken to dispose the canteens stores &c, in side buildings.

The whole ground will be surrounded by a wall, having a tower at each of its six or eight angles.

The building immediately to be erected is the mess establishment and officer’s barracks.

Its length will be about 354 feet, fronting, as we have said, to the Oughtibridge road, and its width and height each about 40 feet.

It will be three stories high, and consist of a centre and two wings.

The architecture is a mixture of Gothic and castellated style.

In the centre is the principle gateway, and over it an oriel window. On each side are embattled towers.

The architecture of the two wings is of a plainer character, the heads of the ground floor windows being Gothic, and those of the upstairs being square.

The centre building contains the mess establishment, and the two wings the rooms of the officers.

The ground floor and the first floor are devoted to the use of the officers, and the top story to that of their servants.

The accommodation will be for 18 cavalry, and 19 infantry officers, and an equal number of servants.

Arrangements will be made, by flues in the walls, for the ventilation of the rooms; and the comfort of the officers will be consulted by several conveniences not generally possessed in barracks.

It may serve to illustrate the discomforts to which gentlemen in the army have to submit, to mention what is considered one of the greatest of these improvements.

It is the addition to each officer's room of a dark closet, capable of holding a bed, so that officers will not be compelled actually to make the same room serve as sitting room and bedroom, but will have the privilege to sleep in closets, without windows, separated only by curtains from their sitting rooms!

And this arrangement, which no private person in decent circumstances would bear, is considered a great improvement in the accommodation of military officers, many of whom are gentlemen of birth and fortune.

At the south-east corner of the barrack yard, will be a back entrance from the Owlerton road; and between the barrack yard wall and that yard, will be a piece of ground to be used as an exercising field.

The capacity of the new barracks, when completed, will be as follows:-

Cavalry Infantry

Field officers-----------2 ----------1

Other officers--------19 ----------------18

Officers sevants----21 -----------------19

Sergeants and privates--252 ------524

Hospital patients --------32 ----------- 58

'' staff ---------2 ------3

Horses; Officers'-----50 ----6

'' Troop-------204 -----------0

'' Sick--------15 ---------0

There will also be one provost-sergeant.

The mess establishment and officers' barracks are to be completed by the 1st May 1849. and it is supposed the cost will be about £15,000.

At present, the plans for only the mess establishment and the officers' barracks are prepared. For the rest of the building contemplated, the money has not yet been granted by Parliament.

We may anticipate that when these plans have been fully carried out, we shall again have the advantage of having our barracks made the head quarters of any troops that may be stationed there.

The Government appears to be quite alive to the fact, that the railways will make Sheffield an important military station.

Situated upon the most direct east and west trunk line; with easy access to Lancashire and to the east coast; with ready communication into the heart of the West Riding, or the Midland counties; troops stationed here will have all the facilities of movement that could be desired.
