  1. It may be worth taking a look at the photos of "Christadelphians Meeting House" on picturesheffield and any old maps you have access to, I'm not stating it is the same building, just that it could have been, the building also has a date mark of 1838. http://www.picturesheffield.com/

    St Elizabeth's Home, Olive Grove.

    I believe there was well situated just outside the main door(s) into the building, think it can be seen on some of the old photos, but recalling what others have said it was an ornamental well that was placed for visitors to make donations to the trust, bit like a wishing well. I am in no way stating that there was never a real functioning well within the grounds, but I have not seen any marked on any of the old maps I have access to.

    The Catholic chapel was incorporated in the main building, no there was no cemetery.

    Something Weird.

    Doubt it was anything to worry about, I would say that the image was a panorama, you can drag/move the cursor around to view the image from different angles.

    Old Maps from 'Ordnance Survey'.

    And I often get the impression that the person(s) who own sheffieldhistory could not run a **** up in a brewery
