Recommended Posts

Haven't had a post in here for a while - where can you see these gates?

You posted another photo recently from very near by unless I'm not mistaken

I'll put a 10/- note on them having been an entrance to somewhere called "Richmond Park" but not the big open area called Richmond Park

Wouldn't have thought that you owe me owt vox,

maybe the gate posts were moved to Richmond Hall Farm from another location,

they look a little ornate to be on a farm.

That's because I had a brain to finger malfunction

It should have been Richmond Park, which has a driveway off the then Richmond Lane

Aaaah I see.

I can't seem to find anything about "Richmond Park" (Apart from the big green one)

Looking again though, it seems a bit too far up the road to have been where the gate posts are.

Picture sheffield puts the gate posts and farm at the end of Ravenscroft and slightly left.

The roads around there now have the Richmond Hall name.

"Richmond Park" is much further along.

So it looks like we're looking for Richmond Hall

Edit:

Although what Richmond Park was I don't know.

This from Wikipedia

Richmond was historically a small settlement consisting of a few cottages and Richmond Hall Farm, built in 1668 and demolished in 1966. Gateposts from the farm, which may have originally flanked an entrance to Sheffield Park, can still be seen amidst a housing estate dating from the late 1960s.

Edit:

Now I want to know what this Richmond Park is

I used to pass those gate posts every day . I used to live on Richmond Hill road the road leading down to the big park. However these gate posts are near to where Brook school was. I can remember the farm being demolished in 1966 the year that I got married. Further down the road past the school and nearer to Handsworth is Richmond park road and the estate. I can remember this all being fields as well and you could walk through to Darnall . Lamb Hill farm used to be where the Richmond Hall estate is now and not at all far away on Richmond road I am not sure if there is any connection.

There is a bit about the area here that mentions Lamb Hill being a hamlet.

Maybe you should leave it for a while - see if anyone works it out.

Vox! When I saw your post on this topic "Only the Gateposts are left" I thought this was it. I thought your tyreman from Hackenthorpe village had come up with the goods. What happened? Where are our promised pictures?

Like I said Thylacine.

I'll believe it when it happens. <_<

Mom's been away for a while but she's back soon. That'll give me an opportunity to call in at his place in the village and ask about them.

Thanks for pointing that out joepeacockblade and welcome to SheffieldHistory,

I'm sure that more information will appear regarding these gate posts.
