Mystery Location

Is it some sort of water standpipe? Some where near the fat cat?

Item - maybe open to suggestions

Location - Quite away off

It is some sort of manual pump, the handle is still there.

Yes you're spot on 'plain talker'

Have a Christmas Pudding lol

What year did it become a pub please?

now, I know that my husband and I were newly married when the fight was going on to prevent it from becoming a pub. so that would have been 1993/4 so judging on the need to do any works on the building (like stripping the pews and stuff) would have taken it to about 1995 ish

You need to travel south east a few miles

When you walk about in Sheffield and any other town or city there is usually more to be seen historicaly if you look upwards at the upper floors of older buildings.

For example what my be a "Costa Coffe" at street level could actually be quite old, this is what I am trying to demonstrate with some of these "Mystery Locations"

So to contiue, where is this guy to be found

Apologies for the quality, it was taken on my phone

The guy in question is reputed to be Judge Hugh McCalmont Cairns (1819-1985) once Lord chancellor who now overlooks Church Street.

I like the wall dial on the corner of the building, nearly always right, no moving parts.

Back in the 60's I'm sure it used to be a bank

Old manual petrol pump, in the car park of Birley Wood Golf Course/ Fairways pub

I suppose it is a leftover from the sites farming history
