Hi I'm new to the forum... and it's lockdown.... and..  OK.. so I found this thread - and I was curious... which dates were missing - which stones / buildings had been photographed... where

Remember that at that period older people would still be able to recall when streets weren't paved and drained.  To us a drain cover may be utilitarian and faintly a "bit dirty", but to Victorians the

1898 - Parkwood View - Shop on the corner of Walkley Lane and Kirkstone Rd

1890 - Ebenezer Primitive Methodists - South Rd walkley

1871 - St Mary's School - South Road Walkley

1904 - Walkley Library - South Rd and Walkley Rd

I've been driving round at work today and seen loads. These are the only ones I could stop and write down.

There's a big one on the Penistone Rd bridge over the Porter at Sheff. Wednesday ground. On your right driving into town. It's partly obscured by a fence and difficult to read at 30 mph. Could be 1915. Perhaps a walker could read it.

1912 Park Baths and Library, Duke Street,

says 1902 on the front of the building.

Round the side, like you say it looks to be 1912.

or is it an optical illusion?

Found one for 1828, but does it count if that's all that's left of the building???

The old Grouse & Trout Pub at redmires.

Can't make my mind up on that one mike142sl

Quote DaveH ..

"There must be many buildings in or around Sheffield with stones like this, for example that funny little arcade between Leopold Street and Fargate that opened in 1987 has a fairly high and prominent dated stone saying, well, 1987.

The Challenge,

Can we find dated stones in the area for every year from the present back as far as goodness knows when?We don't particularly need pictures for this, just a list by year of the building name and location"

As DaveH is having computer problems at the moment,

may be Stuart0742 can help us with this one.

The original challenge was to find date stones on Sheffield buildings, this was on the back of the "Mystery Location" topic. The idea is to get people to look at buildings as a whole rather than just the modern bits.

I think the final decision should be Planetalker's she is overseeing the list.

Well, looks like I'm in with a shout of having the earliest so far then. Would be useful to have a definitive list on the OP.

St. Gabriel's Church Greystones 1936. The stone is in the original outside wall, but a new entrance porch means it's now inside the entrance hall, but it's still visible from outside.

Are we using the word 'building' in a looser sense here Sando? <_<

Yes,very loosly, the stones are part of the base to stanage pole.
