Hello!

This is my first time on the forum so be gentle with me.

Can anyone tell me where exactly Sharrow Bottom was around 1864?

Also a place Called Romany Vale around 1851?

Thank you and keep well.

Hi

I'm not sure but could be.  I found it on a will for one of my ancestors.  I saw this on picture Sheffield too but was trying to pin point on a map?

Thank you!

On that map I can see Sharrow Moor, Sharrow Mounts, Sharrow Bank, Sharrow Head, Sharrow Mills, Sharrow Moor School, Mill Dam, Westbrook Mill, Stalker Wheel etc

We just have to figure out the rest now..

Romany Vale - a possibility?

from David Robins - A Century of Sheffield 1835 to 1935    

"At the corner of Brocco Bank and Ecclesall Road, where the Woffinden Almshouses are today, was a recognised gypsy encampment. The gypsies  had their colourful caravans on the banks of the river where their horses could be watered."
