Danville Mount & Writtle Street.

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I've been trying to find these places as they are where my Great great Grandparents lived in 1891 & 1911. I found Danville Street, just below Burnsgreave cemetery, but not Danville Mount, I assumed they would be close together. Also Writtle Street I've been unable to find, although it is listed on picture sheffield, there is no picture!! If anyone can help, that would be great.

There is a photograph of Danville Street in this Topic

it looks to have been taken from the top of the street next to No.112 on the corner of Sun Street.

The road on the right where the corner shop is looks like Letwell Place to me.
