  1. I volunteer on the canal, and as 'drolnhoj' says, if you walk from Worksop Road, up the steps, along the canal towards Sheffield, just before the bridge, on the right is the remains of the old Attercliffe Station.
  2. Sorry to hear that Gaz, wasn't he a relative of yours?

    Empire garage Sheffield

    Bought my first Lambretta, a Series 2 TV175, from there 1967, £60. 2years later traded it in, with them, for a SX200, both lovely machines, wish I still had them. Got a DL150 now. The 2 men that ran it were both very friendly and helpful, both were in their 60's.

  14. Hi Peter, what name did you work under when you were a driving instructor? I worked for Martin Woodward SOM from 1996 to 2015. Roxy School of Motoring was owned by Bill Barton later his son became a HGV instructor. Martin Woodward also worked for Roxy many years ago. geotom.
  15. Hi all, I feel sure that the shop by the side of Bagley Dyke and what was Owlet Lane (opposite The Reform Chapel) was owned by a distant relative of mine a chap called Charlie( Wag) Smith he had it as a grocery shop, and then I believe it became Pearsons used car spares. I am told that the old toilets is an extension to the garage to make it a bigger shop.
