    Fish and Chips in Sheffield thread

    According to The Chip Diaries, Codrophenia has closed, which is a shame, as it was a good chippy. http://thechipdiaries.blogspot.com/

    Do you feel safe in Sheffield?

    I feel far safer here than in Leeds. And I’m from Leeds! The only time I ever feel a threat is the West St/Dev St area on a Friday or Saturday night, or down near Tank or Howard St. - all the drunk Lads and Blokes ready to get aggressive with anyone they don’t like. Most of Leeds is like that but in Sheffield it’s very localised and easy to avoid. Doesn’t stop me going into town though.

    Simon Yates wins Vuelta 2018

    He reminded me very much of Contador when he attacked. Chapeau to him.

    Warminster Road Allotments

    It's hard to say who the owners re. I own one which I use as an orchard for cider making, but I rent the one next door. It belongs to a woman who lives in Oxfordshire who inherited it from her husband. It had belonged to his father many years ago. I pay her £35 a year for its use but there's no water supply. However, I have a well on my own plot so I get water from there. Several users have just occupied overgrown plots and used them. Those plots are owned by someone, somewhere, but unless the owner turns up and chucks them off, there's nothing to stop them. Some of the overgrown plots do have local owners however, so be unwise to occupy them. When I say 'overgrown' I am talking forest, in some cases. My rented plot was covered in 12 year-old ash trees up to 10" in diameter! Not to mention brambles as thick as broom handles, nettles, bindweed etc.
  5. I live at Norton Lees. Along a lot of the roads here, the old orange sodium street lamps used to be supported on the rather decorative 19th century cast iron gas lamp standards, complete with T-bar for the lamplighter’s ladder. When Andy replaced them all with the new LED street lamps on their plastic poles, all the venerable old standards were taken out, except for the sewer gas lamps. Anyone know what happened to them? I’d imagine their resale value would be considerable.

    Real ale pubs showing world cup matches

    Watching it at Church in Rutland Road. Interesting beers and the best vegan food in Sheffield!

    Vegan visitor in Sheffield?

    Yes they are all vegan. ---------- Post added 11-07-2018 at 08:02 ---------- The MNB team now do the food at Church. Lovely stuff.
  8. I ride over there daily but I wait for the change or if it's busy, use the cycle path. If you go through on red you have to stop at the Matilda St lights anyway; the St Mary's lights are timed so if you wait for green there, then ride at a moderate speed on to the Matilda St junction, those lightschangetogreen just as you arrive at the head of the traffic, so you can carry on without stopping. Seems some of my fellow riders haven't worked that out. Riders in both directions have independent cycle traffic lights to indicate when it's safe tocross St Mary's. I think some people take that as meaning carry on through, as long as there's nobody on the crossing. I'm not sure if that's right or not. However you interpret it, you should always stop for pedestrians.

    Winter weather thread 2017/2018

    It was lovely cycling to work this morning with no traffic on the roads.

    New LED street lights

    I was disappointed they missed the opportunity to install colour-changing LEDs. Imagine.
  11. 'Please: 'metre'. Other than that, I like the cut of your jib.
  12. Glad the 19 is coming back. However, I do hope that the 18/19 will have more pre-9 a.m. services than the current 0749 number 18, which is the only option for commuters. Add to that the ludicrous 1640 and 1740 on the reverse route, which are no use to the majority of people who finish at 5.00: I do hope First see sense and put some sensible timings on the service. A late service to Woodseats might be helpful too. The last number 20 is now at 2315 from Moorfoot, and there used to be various services running to Woodseats after that time, which were lifesavers for me living at Norton Lees, just up the hill. It's like First don't want to cater for people out to see bands or regular pub goers. You'd think it was all about money.

    Sheffield Arena noise Wincobank

    The only real noise you may get, and all night at that, is the deep boom of the big hammer at Forgemasters. Personally, I find it beautiful.
  14. Try here https://www.shu.ac.uk/study-here/accommodation/find-somewhere-to-live/properties/charlotte-court Charlotte is nice, perhaps a little basic compared to some of the modern private sector blocks in town but it's cheap, all bills included, with a cleaner too, and is in a secure compound. Someone mentioned fines and yes, there are some, but you have to be pretty badly behaved for that - setting fire extinguishers off, breaking furniture, setting fire to your room, and the rules are clearly set out in the tenancy agreement. SHU Accommodation Services are also very straightforward to deal with, unlike many private landlords!
  15. Meersbrook Garage are where I went last. Good job and not badly priced.
