Pub was The Golden Ball 10 Townhead Street-85 Campo Lane.

Could 86 be in the flats, think still there.

I seem to remember that the flats originally ran all the way around into Townhead St. Can't remember the flat's name at the moment. Anyone help me out?

Re golden ball. Well that is great, dont think 86 is in Flats as that is odd number side of road, problem is I can see from old maps that there dosnt appear to be any houses on even side only commercial,

I have old Map that shows buildings(Flats ) to be same as they are today 86 must have been opposite and most likely demolished

OOOoOOO a Pub question .... EEEEK

This has got to be favourite ...

Thomas Hawksley was Victualler of the Golden Ball, 69 Campo Lane & 6 Townhead Street as listed in Kelly's 1893 Directory.

There were plenty of Pubs on Townhead Street (Warm Hearthstone, Burns, Fountain, Crystal Palace, Ball) check out my SheffieldPubs thread, in the Pubs section.

This may be a visual trap as the Golden Ball is on the same side of Townhead St. as the flats, it crosses Campo Lane and goes up towards Church St

Yes but the Flats do have odd numbers, may be if some one is going that way they could look see would be most obliged, Harvey,

Harvey,

The flats finish at No 82 and then there is a gap where the cars now drive through to park in the yard. Maybe Nos 84 & 86 were demolished to make way for the vehicle access.
