  5. An interesting tale.... I will shortly be back in Sheffield. My third visit back home to see the family. I can't wait to catch up with my old mates and also show my new ozzie bf around the town that I grew up in.
  6. Isn't the Marples haunted (I know it isn't there anymore) - but I heard strange stories and in fact worked there and had a few spooky shocks
  7. Yes I remember that place. I used to start off at Marples, then round to the Claymore, across to the Mulberry Tavern, Blue Bell, Dove and Rainbow, then the pub at the back of the Cathedral (wig and Pen?) and then across to the Golden Ball (?) and then up to the Stonehouse, back down to the Blue Bell and back to marples for last orders....OMG I don't know how I drunk so much nor how I paid for it...
  8. I don't think so - the school ia all but derelict and most of it has been demolished - the old junior buildings are still in use though

  12. I recall Rebina shoes - my sister bought a pair of wicked black ankle boots with suede animal skin turn downs!!! She wouldn't let me borrow them so I nicked them and put them in a bag, got on the 64 bus into Pond st. changed in the toilets and did my make-up (I was 16 and not allowed into pubs) then trotted off to the Marples in fitzallen square - had agood old dance around with Mick the P**** DJ and then across to the mobile food van for onion Bhaji's. Running for the last bus at 11.15 :-) those were the days;)

  14. I will ask my Gran - she lives on Craddock road and may know/have some pics. she is 90 now so she should be able to remember. Sarah
  15. sounds like the old building on the fileds behind where the pub is (wasn't before then) I wonder when the pub was built? I recall it always being there but I can only remember back to 1972.

  17. Do you mean close to the Vulcan pub? At the very top of Craddock where Northern Avenue meets it??
  18. I have been there many times - the last time was April 07. My family go there regularly for meals. I have friends who go out on Thursday/Friday evenings there for a good night. When I was back there in 07 I bumped into an old flame who was working behind the bar there. Rob. so if anyone who goes in the Sherwood and knows him - please ay a big 'hello' from me . Sarah
