My uncle lived here and all I will say is that it is haunted by the ghost of a young child.

We lived here when we first came to Sheffield in 1979:

1891 census

ref: piece 3805 e.d. 28 folio 133

21 Victoria Rd

(Ecclesall Bierlow; Broomhall)

Joseph WHELAN Head Marr 35 builder YKS Sheffield

Marie WHELAN Wife Marr 31 YKS Sheffield

Mary CROSS Servant Unm 25 general servant YKS Meadowhall

We lived in the attic flat, which is probably where the servant lived. A huge house for three people!

It may be one of these houses, but I would have to go and check on the ground.

Just found out about this piece of family history. My Mum as a child lived on land behind Forge Farm at the bottom of Stannington Road.

These people below are listed on Sheffield records online.

James CLARKE Farmer Forge Farm, Stannington Road, Malin Bridge White's 1919

Mrs Ann Maria CLARKE Farmer Forge Farm, Stannington Road, Malin Bridge Kelly's 1925

Just to add a bit more, attached is a photo at the back of the farm from 1930 ish of my grandparents, Mum, aunts and uncle. Excuse quality of photo we only have the negative and are working on editing it at the mo.

Hugh, I have only just seen this, and I thought I would mention that I think Richard A. Sparling, the former sports editor of the Sheffield Telegraph, lived on that road. He died back in the 1970s, having retired nearly 20 years earlier, but I once went to his house and it was very large. What is interesting about old houses, especially those that must have once belonged to the Upper Classes, is to know who lived in them in their heyday. Hope you agree.

This is a picture of the end of Clough Road, number 185 ws the corner house and I think the old lady who lived there in the mid 1950s was called Mrs Headford. I rented a room in this house when I was in my late teens, around 1956. The premises were demolished a long time ago. The house was not far from Queen's Road, and there was a beer off on Leadmill Road where I used to stock up with food on pay-day every week!

Hugh HI Hugh , lf is possible to cover the census covering the years around 1933/6, l think you should find the tenant of 21 Victoria Rd was Robert Revington an old school pal of my father, who also owned the property where we went to live, in1935, through this pal of my dad, l remember going to visit him there, when my dad took him a Scotsterrier puppy which he used to breed, l recall getting a suitable reminder to behave myself, as its a very nice house you're going to.Skeets.
