Unadopted Roads

Recommended Posts

Unadopted roads are not maintained by the Council, situation may have changed but there is/was one in Hillsborough/Malin Bridge area, anyone know of any others please ? Or indeed which one I am thinking of ...

I have memories when I was a kid seeing a street sign with the word 'unadopted' on it. I spent a lot of my time around the walkley, crookesmoor area and went to school at Myers Grove, but the precise location does not spring to mind.

A guess would be the road leading from Stannington Road just opposite the Anvil Pub, down to the Moushole Mill

I've thought of three, one Malin Bridge up towards Dial House; one between Malin Bridge and Walkley; one in Stocksbridge (tough one)

Seem to remember when I was young in the 50s that there was an unadopted road opposite the Anvil pub on Stannington Road or a bit further up across from Butler Road.......Low Lane rings a bell but the memory fades

Speeton Road in Walkley?

Unsure of this one lol

Still not got my three, Malin Bridge/Dial House, up Dykes Lane basically

Malin Bridge to Walkley - got a Pub on the end of it

Stocksbridge - too difficult unless you live there !

the road off Shrewsbury road, now known as Barnes Court was an unadopted road, but about 25 years ago Northern Counties housing assoc built some flats there, and I think it ceased to be U?A after that.

I know of a couple of little lanes in Broomhall, off Park lane that are "private roads", one either side of Collegiate Crescent.

Infield Lane,Darnall,between High Hazels Park and the allotments.This is a secondary access road to the park and Tinsley Park golf club.It has suffered severe flytipping in recent years,being in an out-of-the-way place,but there is hope of housing development at the Darnall end soon,so things may improve.

During my recent visit, the condition of some roads made we wonder if the council realised they were adopted. I seem remember a poem broadcast on Radio Sheffield about the roads, contained the line "You can always tell when you're back in Sheffield..... anyone remember it?

In the sixties there was one off King James St. I think either Cross King James St. (Up top left before it met Grammer St.) or Rose or Falka St which were opposite each other at the bottom end, above the Lyceum pub..
