Correct. Tinker brook flows through Howe Park at Wharncliffe Side. Tinker Brook House stands near the head of the valley.

From 1850s map

As promised, very, very central; a rather famous "delayed" building ... lived there for a while until the argument died down then it lived there until ... well just until it was taken "Downes".

There is a clue or two in there somewhere.

Further question:

By what other name was Shaw's Close known

It seems to have a few possible addresses ! Can't deny, it's one of Sheffields most iconic buildings and extremely central.

No idea what other name it was known, looking forward to the answer. Brilliant, eh ? a question to which I know an answer, another , alternative answer provided (via your PM) and an answer I don't know - all pointing to the same place - I wonder who Shaw was ?? and what he/she/it did- it's not a Pie-Emporium is it ?

Fulwood Booth (1809)

Fulwood, obviously, have we heard it called Fulwood Booth before ?

Only just spotted this one!

Fulwood Booth is a farmhouse overlooking Redmires at the top of Mayfield Valley. It originally belonged to Beauchief Abbey. A booth was a cattle-rearing farm. (The present house is not the original one, which was demolished many years ago and a replacement built close by.)

After the dissolution it passed to the Earl of Shrewsbury, who reserved an area at Redmires, overlooked by the booth, for rearing deer. He had a couple of gamekeepers living there to look after the deer, and later, in 1574 a shepherd and a housekeeper lived there.

On the 24th November 1574 it is recorded that one spinning wheel and two pairs of wool cards were sent to Fulwood Booth. On the 19th April 1575 9st 3lb of coverlet yarn were brought from Fulwood Booth and delivered to George Waddye of Dowre (Dore), with another 12lb of black (unbleached?) yarn "which he had in his hands already on that day to make 14 coverlets, but there were only 12 made and no more". (Someone accusing someone of short measure?)

Thankyou Steve , I suppose it's gone now.

The name Bow Street ceased around 1930,

when it was re-named West Street.

Here's a view looking down West Street towards what was once called Bow Street,

the PH on the L/H side (corner of Holly St) is the Wharncliffe Arms, on the right are the Education Buildings,

the top of Church Street can be seen in the background.

Not bad Steve, 1926 according the Peter Harvey!
