  1. Every time I drive down this road, I am astonished as to how wide it is when you include the grass verges … does anybody know why it is like this? I realise it’s been around for a long time … and originally a Lane … but that doesn’t explain anything to me.
  2. Cheers guys ... much appreciated. I’ll contact Grenoside History Society when the ‘lockdown’ lifts.
  3. Cheers Hillsboro ... ... since entering my post, I’ve realised that I knew that Roselle Street, in Hillsborough, was re-named from Rose Street. I have also ‘learned’ that the catalyst for these changes is when the area of Hillsborough was absorbed into Sheffield City ... from the West Riding Council. Sounds feasible.
  4. Does anybody have any information or pictures of the MUNITIONS SCRAP YARD at Grenoside. This was located on the same ‘footprint’ as the ‘new’ Crematorium ... well it was new in 1999. Old maps show the site had a number of buildings / huts linked by, what looks like, curved trenches.
  5. Whilst looking at some old maps of the Wadsley area ... specifically those behind the Church ... I’ve noticed that most of their names changed. On an OS map dated 1888 - 1913 compared to current, the situation is Airedale Road ... was Argyle Road Milden Road ... was Miller Road Marlcliffe Road ... was Marlborough Avenue ** Vainor Road ... was Vicarage Road ** This road was the only one showing actual houses ... a small terrace near to the Langsett Road end. No sign of the School. Grove Avenue and Don Avenue didn’t change. Worral Road is shown as Church Lane Laird Road is shown as Crabtree Lane. Any ideas ?
  6. I'm wanting to update some Geograph information about an old house on Skew Hill in Grenoside ... and have been told that a Frank Goddard lived there with his wife, and was a Coalman. Does anybody have any memories or history of Frank Goddard ?
  7. Good story Arfer … certainly the 1905 map shows the CCDH site to be undeveloped.
  8. Looking at the Picture Sheffield examples of Jessop Hospital on the Leavygreave Road site ... There are some which show a Covered Bridge between the original buildings and a more modern mystery building to the left. The bridge is at first floor level. The clearest picture is dated 1994 ref s23436 The plasticky looking Jessop West building is now on the site of the mystery building. Does anybody know what this building was? Another picture shows an Ante-Natal Clinic on this site but this looks to have been an earlier building. This picture is dated 1971 ref s23424 Thanks
  9. I test that the Sewer Gas Destructor Lamp on Leavygreave Road, next to the original Jessop Hospital building will remain ... ... Forever 'cocking a snook' at the new Engineering Block.
  10. Thanks H ... Interesting stuff ... Especially about The Star nams
  11. Brilliant, says it all ... Thanks you ... And regards to pippo! PS I like your 'footer' ... Makes me smile every time I see it.
  12. Hi ... I can't find any information about Charles Clifford ... I suspect he was a Dentist of sorts!
  13. Thanks Hillsbro … Herbiegrass … yes, the building is on that corner … and as Hillsbro describes, Craven Street is behind it.
