One Gate post in an oddly shaped recess at the corner of Endcliffe Park.

It isn't anything to do with The Peace Guesthouse because it is outside the border of it's garden.

EDIT: or maybe it was, at some point in the past"

I suppose it is what's left of a redundant entrance to the park.

Shown as an alternative entrance to the park on the 1905 OS map.

Just remembered another set of gate-posts near the entrance to Longley Park opposite the top of Stubbin Lane. These formerly belonged to the drive to Crowder/Crowther house. The house was demolished around 1935 and I believe most of the grounds to the house became Longley Park.

As requested by Gramps - the former gates to Crowder House

I always thought these were the gate posts to the Stubbing?

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.

Those post were originally the Intake Gate to Sheffield Park. The house where they originally stood alongside belonged to a chap called Burrowe Trippett, the posts were far too grand far the house that he built. And indeed someone at the Handsworth Historical Society told me that they had a bill of sale or something on those lines to say that he had purchased them from the Duke of Norfolk after Sheffield Park was diss-parked. They hadn't been up very long for a survey in 1685 describes them as the "new Intacke Yate" on the private road that ran up hill from Park Hill. These were the gates that were locked up to stop people using the road and feature in the 1692 dispute. They would have stood where the Asda Car Park is at Manor Top.

On Woodhouse Road are two paths leading to the Woodthorpe Estate. The following photos were taken by me in the 1980's. They both have gateposts to buildings long gone. The first picture shows more simple gateposts these lead up to Cottage Farm which would have been at the end of the path, now replaced with the Woodthorpe Estate. The next picture is located just a bit further down the road and these are more grander for they were on the original path to the Woodthorpe Hall itself. At the top of the path it turned a sharp right to a driveway that brought you out at the Hall and Woodthorpe Farm. Two close ups of the posts show the carvings.
