Just for a bit of fun when you have a spare 10 minutes or so

See if you can find Sheffield related places, buidings etc on Google Street View

No rules except it can not be Sheffield South Yorkshire its got to be somewhere else.

I will start you off with the following posts.

Not on Street View,

but one that seems to crop up a lot in a search and on ebay books & postcards etc, is ..

Sheffield Park, East Sussex.

Link to Flash Earth

Yes Steve,

Search for Sheffield on the Internet and it comes back with either Sheffield Park Sussex or some American imposter of a City.

...and its really annoying when you want to find stuff about THIS Sheffield.

Another thing that has become even more annoying, especially on Google is when you search for things like "Gleadless" or "Arbourthorne"

It comes back with a lot of hits, you find some that look like just the sort of info you are looking for so you click on it...

...and it returns me to my own postings on Sheffield History :(

Indeed, is their another Manor Top out there. :huh:

Should add that if you Google "Norfolk School" or "Norfolk Park" you get lots of stuff from other places called Norfolk, - not just the ones in East Anglia and the USA.

WARNING

Googling "Norfolk School" also comes back with a lot of DaveH posts on this very site.

USA Streetview is terrible compared to UK

Sheffield, Warren, PA, USA

Sheffield, Pecos, TX, USA

The first settler, a man named John Cannon moved into the area and bought the spring.

Another early settler was Will Sheffield. He had a slight advantage in having the town named

after him since he was the town's first postmaster (1898).

Sheffield, Beadle, SD 57350, USA

Sheffield, Franklin, IA, USA

Sheffield, Spartanburg, SC 29301, USA

Sheffield, Lorain, OH, USA

Sheffield, Lynchburg, VA 24502, USA

Sheffield, Greenwood, SC 29646, USA

Sheffield, Bureau, IL, USA

Edit:

Well That way worked at last.

Back to using Firefox (though I still can't embed them.)

Downtown Sheffield, Alabam - Problems

"Sheffield, Alabama is a small Southern city that, like so many towns has fallen onto hard times because of poor management by Government coupled with indifference on the part of its Citizens. We produced this documentary in 2003, and here three years later, the City is in even deeper peril. We guess the Civic Leaders still don't get it."

It's long but interesting
