If you look on various sites they say that the Bass trademark is the oldest registered trademark in Sheffield.It looks quite modern but who knows?

Sorry , meant to say this-- Bass took over Stones in the 1960s

Yes Stones was first taken over by 'Charringtons' then shortly after by 'Bass' in 1968, guess that's when 'Bass Charringtons' came about.

DATE LINE

There is no evidance whatsoever of any over head gantry on this photo so therefore it cant be any latter than the early 1950's think the electric line was opened in around 1953.

Are we sure it is the old GC line through sheffield

Is there anywhere in the other direction it can be

I am trying to get through to some experts on the gc to id it

Not much left of it was there, opposite side of the track from this box was a sort of fairy castle carved into the rock presumably by the navvies.

Has anyone looked at the arches leading from Norfolk bridge?

Not a good photo but gives you an idea

Fred Mulley road viaduct

Norfolk bridge itself is stone faced but the viaduct arches leading away from it are brick, not lot of detail and not too big. Looks promising?

Has anyone checked out this one William Stones was the Cannon Brewery 43 Rutland Road near to the railway embankment.

Has anyone checked out the Bass Charrington Brewery,Hope and Anchor, on Claywheels Lane? The railway goes straight behind it from Wadsley.

Texx, You have a lot to answer for , for the sanity of this site.

Over the last two weeks I have been walking MILES trying to find the site of your photo.

A few of my photo,s .I must have taken at least 200.

The good news is I was able to take photo,s of pubs.

The bad news is -it isn,t Wadsley.

Went in the Rawson Springs Pub.I thought that I had pulled with all the women smiling at me. It was only when I went to the toilet that I saw the amount of leaves etc that I had in my hair from furtling through the undergrowth.Could have done with Doctor Stanley.

hey, like the photo. That's the bridge over the line just North of Neepsend Station, which can just about be seen in the distance. Out to the right were some elevated sidings in dark brick accessed by a steel road bridge, but these sidings were pulled down in the last 2 years.

Has anyone seen or posted this photo on this thread. I know it isn't what you looking for but this photo of Wincobank signal box looks the same vintage as the original photo?

It would be interesting to know who/what brewery/s ditributed 'Bass' around the year of the photo, it would be 'Bottled Bass' " I think" so who distributed it, was it just 'Stones' or was there another local brewer who had the franchise around that time?

l think Tennants distributed Bass also . skeets

Another Battersby photo to decipher. This is a photo of my Grandad Walt (he's the one leaning on the post with a cigarette in his hand) taken when he was on strike (he was a lorry driver all his life). The photo appeared in 'The Picture Post'.

Can anyone identify the location and possibly the year it was taken?

Is it near the Wicker?

Was it taken in the 40's? I know Walt drove for a brewery around that time.

This has to be the best site for specialist knowledge of Sheffield, so thinking caps on folks please!

`TexxUK` This may be the arches that Henry Matthews timber merchants rented one of them the rd continued to Effing ham rd then further arches continued past Effingham rd skeets,By the way did you have any connection with a family of Battersby that lived on Sedan st pitsmoor skeets
