Waterside Echo

Somewhere near the canal, not quite sure at the moment, but there are some distinctive roof shapes in the background.

Go down High Hoe Road [b6041] and its on the left at the side of the canal just before the traffic lights.

Might have changed my mind about being nr the canal, still reckon the roofs in the background are a clue

Thanks for that,

I remember fishing the canal in Worksop near to a chimney, sounds like the same one.

Your right Stewart it's no where near the canal,

but it's very near to water; in more ways than one.

Yes you got it Waterside Echo :)

Heeley Baths on Broadfield Rd, just across the road flows the river Sheaf,

and the the building that stands behind is the rear of Abbeydale Picture House

with it's distinctive domed roof.

Right Steve can see it from his upstairs window, I wonder how many people drive past everyday or even ride on the tram past, (not sure if you can see it from the tram, though not to far away)

Steve lives Heeley/Arbourthorne and high enough for a view.

The nearest Supertram gets is Park Grange.

I think the bottom of Park Grange will be hidden, from most places in that area, behind trees. .

So process of elimination and evidence says it's got to be somewhere between East Bank road and Park Grange Road near the bottom on the left going up hill, below the big pub.

Or not as the case may be.

I'm sure I have seen them fighting Dr. Who, - they are certainly ugly enough!

Are they part of a chuch perhaps?

I was going to go there today for a look, just to make certain.

Beat me to it Bayleaf.

Did you know there are virtually no pictures of it (not that I can find) on line.

Just a couple of very small ones with no detail.

Where is this very distinctive entrance?

What stood in the window untill roughly 15 years ago.

Steve should get this instantly.

Where is the easy bit, but no idea what stood in the window, used to be Express Dairy, so guess it was something to do with that :)
