Should be Mount Road, and the pub would have been the Douglas Inn, corner of Mount Road and Douglas Road

I think that Pismire Hill was the original name of what became Bellhouse Road at Firth Park not Pitsmoor ! ;-)

Correct Dunsbyowl. It is shown on the 1907 Sheffield and district O.S.map.

Nether Shire Green -O.S.1907

Right over Pismire Hill to the left at the bottom before coming to wooley Woods.

Raisin Hall Rd is off Moonshine Lane but I cannot see any hall on my maps.

Raisen Hall stood on Herries Road where the Devonshire Arms now stands. don't know when it was demolished but The Forum cinema was built on the site of the farm and that opened in 1938. The Hall is still there on the 1902 map (Sheffield Longley in the Godfrey maps series Below).

Richard will probably know this already, but the Devonshire Arms was a pre-fab building opened in 1949, using the license from the blitzed pub of the same name at 23 The Moor. In 1962 a stone-built pub was built in front of the pre-fab which was then removed.

Bitholmes is just to the west of Manchester Road approaching Deepcar. Locally pronounced Biddums.

Hagin Field is on top of the ridge above Holdworth (between Holdworth and Spitewinter (wonderful name!)). (1st ed OS)Spelled Haighenfield on current maps.

Bowden Houstead's wood, Brightside Bierlow (1841)

Any info on Bowden Houstead ?

The wood is an ancient woodland bought by the Council from the Duke of Norfolk in 1914 for £6,000. It is listed in a document written for the 7th Earl of Shrewsbury between 1590 and 1616 as one of the spring woods in Sheffield. Going further back in 1332 at the death of Thomas de Furnival Bowden Housestead Woods is listed under the heading of pastures in woods, moors and commons. In the 14th century it was called Baldwynhousted, which means the homestead belonging to Baldwyn.

Glass house was discussed after a reference to someone from Glass House dying in Sheffield. No answer found to this location though.

A memory jogger, entrance to Parkwood Springs

That rings a bell. Back in the early 60's the City Libraries had their first mobile library, which was a converted single decker bus. Later they bought some custom built vehicles, but the old bus was kept on for several years as it was the only one they had that would fit through the bridge in the picture and serve Parkwood Springs!
