Looking towards Heeley

Recommended Posts

I bet a lot of the landmarks in this photograph hold some fond memories!

 

Can anyone tell me why the open spaces we`re left undeveloped?

Weren't they the old mill ponds, amd so would be prone to flooding? I'm not so sure about the one next to Heeley baths, just behind and below the Abbeydale cinema, though.

One memory for me, our old house on Clyde Road can be seen. This post from 2009 may help https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/6565-broadfield-road/

Was the river diverted when they built Broadfield Rd?

The land was used for Express Dairys

The land above the river was used by Tyzack Turner when they got rid of the goit

On the right of the photo is a dam for the waterwheel at Tyzacks, was later built on by Laycocks I think

Here are some extracts from old maps which might be of interest :- the relevant dates are  1892, 1850, 1875 (Derbyshire) and 1920.
