Hi All, Came Over To Sheffield From Lancashire

Recommended Posts

Guest mr_arc

Hi all

My first visit to Sheffield was on the only day that I had to find somewhere to live here, I knew little about Sheffield and despite living here for 6months now, I still have loads of questions.

Recently made time to visit the museum in Weston Park, and but couldn't stay long in the end. I do want to go back, I loved looking at the old photos of the streets around where I live.

I live near Trippets Lane, and would love to know what industry used to be found round here - when were the new buildings put up (west point / mandale house) and what used to be here. I've been looking into anglo works, as that's easy to find as it still retains the signage on the building!

I often walk through Leopold Square, and recently noticed a door saying "Infants" about it in the stone. Made me realise that the Leopold Hotel used to be a school. So i looked that up and found it to be Central Technical School. Anyone have any photos of the parts that are now Leopold Square? I see that Leopold Square was 'converted' in 2001 and it was educational offices before that, again - any photos of what it was like?

I've noticed that Urban Exploration has been mentioned on here, that too is something that interests me and i've got a few of my adventures up on my site if you'd like to take a look (nothing local yet.. I think the nearest place i've been in to here is High Royds up in Menston).

I live near Trippets Lane

Trippet Lane - should be lots on here, Sheffield Town Hall number 1 (of four) was real near where you live; check pubs also, tons on there - very historic area you have chosen to live in.

Welcome to the site. Hope we can point you in the right direction(s).
