I also noticed a 17-something date stone (1784?) on a former Charity School on St James' Row, beside the Anglican Cathedral this afternoon.

There was a Boy's Charity School built in about 1706 by the cathedral. Apparently there used to be a headstone nearby that the boys called 'Tally' or "t-Alley" (the alley) that they would leapfrog over. I'm trying to find out more about this school (which was supposedly rebuilt in 1826), as my great great grand uncle William Wheelhouse studied there in 1901.

In A Layman's Look at the History, Industry, People and Places of Oughtibridge, Worrall and Wharncliffe Side, Doug Sanderson says that there is a date stone over the door of Burton Farm, Oughtibridge, near the cemetery showing 1685. I think this is Burton/Birtin House where my Dickinson and Ashforth ancestors lived in the 18th century, so I would love to know if it is still there.

Hi Judith,

am I in the right area with this Link ?

Can you pinpoint the farm or the area that it stood/stands ?

If not we could always 'Ask The Audience' :)

It's still here but known as Burton House these days. We drive through it regularly he he

I say drive 'through' it because Burton lane starts just past the junction of Church street and Haggstones road and coming round a blind bend you find yourself in what looks like a farmyard !! I've seen people so convinced they're in a farmyard they have turned round and headed back down Church street.

Worth a trip to look at the house, you would need to park a bit further up the hill outside the cemetery,— it's been modernised a bit but is still obviously very old.

True, but I am indeed in France and have been known to sign "Judith in France". Would really love to nip across and have a look and hopefully will one day.

Hi Judith, - you're very welcome. I will try and get a photo of the house for you, if the owner doesn't mind,...and the date-stone. Can't promise when though so if you let me have your email address via PM I'll be in touch.

Meanwhile here are a couple of sections of the 1850s 6inch scale map of the area. As you can see comparing the house then with the the link Steve gave you the place hasn't changed much in 150 years.

Handsworth Water Works, 1887

I was going to use this one as a mystery location post as Handsworth Water works is NOT at Handsworth.

It is on Hurlfield Road Arbourthorne / Gleadless and is the water works building labelled on old maps as "Hagg Lane" or the water tanks as "Hagg Lane Tanks"

Don't know why they called it Handsworth but we do have a problem with the Noah's Ark pub, not far away on Mansfield Road, also being referred to as Handsworth in some old records.

Could it be within the old parish of Handsworth which was much larger before the 19th. century carve up of parishes ?

The school on Mansfield Rd has an inscription

"Handsworth School Board" or something like that
