  1. They seem to have started around 1878 by Halifax born Joseph Dean as Dean and Henry, by 1885 the company had become Dean & Dawson at 31 High Street and 218 West Street. Within a short time they had branches in the Haymarket, Rotherham, Manchester Victoria Station plus others. By 1920 they were running Battlefield pilgrimages to WW1 battlefields. Joseph Dean died in 1932.
  2. The Snake Inn was there from at least 1826, but there are no references in the newspaper archives to the road being called Snake Pass until the late 1880's. The Roman Road mentioned above was known in later times as Doctor's Gate and went from a Roman Entrenchment known as Melandra Castle at Wooley Bridge, although this is disputed in some sources, it was mentioned as early as 1843.
  3. Don't waste your time Carbuncle...it really isn't worth the effort.
  4. That must be a very large Independent...the largest ones in the general South Yorks area are Thornbridge, Abbeydale and Acorn, and the latter two, who we dealt with didn't run HGV's, although I could imagine Thornbridge using them. I've been in the industry for more than 30 years as a small brewer and to be honest I've never met a small brewer who needs an HGV...unless perhaps they are in with a brewer or wholesaler who is prepared to take a bulk drop occasionally and will manage the distribution to individual outlets themselves. The vast bulk of Independents couldn't fill an HGV unless with a few weeks production We dealt with Whitbread for a while and they would pick up in bulk , as would the larger wholesalers, Wetherspoons would take a bulk drop to a central depot or you could do the individual pubs yourself. SIBA's Direct delivery Scheme was on the same basis. Small brewers generally supply free trade outlets dropping odd 9 gallon barrels ( or very small multiples) of cask ale off at multiple accounts spread over a fairly wide area using a 1 man as driver/drayman, 10 -20 drops in a day is a lot of work...but not a lot of weight...most people don't need more than a twin wheel transit or Mercedes sprinter type van or pickup. The large brewers of course supply tied houses or loan tied freehouses with multiple products, Lagers, ciders, keg ales, nitrokeg stouts and smooth beers, bottles and cans, wines and spirits etc... often in relatively compact areas, they are the ones that need HGV's.
  5. Wetherspoons like most free houses certainly won't run out of real ales, most small independents can deliver direct and very few run HGV's.
  6. No Carling,Coors or Bud lite.....hmmm, might be a price worth paying.
  7. A few Foers bits and pieces. A very strange suicide case from 1909. Courtesy of the British Newspaper Archive A George Roland Foers, hairdresser of Lister St, Rotherham died in 1950. In 1938 this Foers family was saved by the fire brigade. In 1923 a Sheffield teacher called Harry Foers died...his service in WW1 was a contributing factor in his death. In 1908, a lady named Emily Cortis Foers of Jackson's Farm, Treeton died of drowning off St. Anne's on Sea. Albert Foers b1882, Treeton was wounded in France on 23rd May 1917 serving with the Northumberland Fusiliers . ...almost a year to the day later he was wounded again whilst serving in Italy. Wilfred Foers of Cromwell Street, Walkley served with the York & Lancaster Rgt in WW1.
  8. I was attempting to be humorous...no more...I thought it was quite obvious, sorry you haven't taken it that way.
  9. Over 75 miles from your most direct route?
  10. In Mexborough, which is set to lose up to 200 homes and businesses, they consistently undervalued properties but kept it secret via non disclosure gagging orders that prevented neighbours from knowing what others had accepted, when the prices were finally shown by The Land Registry , neighbours in identical homes had been pressured to accept differences of over 10k on a 95k townhouse.
  11. Turkey is not in the European Customs Union! Turkey has a separate customs union arrangement with the EU, that is distinctly different. Quite correct, it is in 'a' Customs Union. Goods entering the EU from Turkey *are* subject to tariffs. Sorry but you are wrong. There are no tariffs on motor vehicles from Turkey. Most Ford Transit's sold in the EU are built in Turkey, Hyundai, Fiat, Renault and Toyota all build there. Germany and France alone import $7b worth of Turkish built cars. The only reason Honda Turkey didn't bother with EU sales was that it was a very small plant that barely coped with it's domestic market...Swindon coped easily. Honda just decided the European manufacturing operations were no longer worth it with their small volumes.
  12. Looks like his Brother George was also a Sheffield City Police Officer...I noticed another PC Hoult retired in 1923...Father/Uncle/elder Brother?
  13. Honda also closed it's european other factory in Turkey.... which is in the European Customs Union.
  14. You may not know...on the other hand it can do even the young some serious damage, a friend's son, a 6'6'' University rower caught it in Italy in the first wave...it put him in hospital for 10 weeks and he still is not fully fit. Another lad we know, 21 years old had 5 months off work and is still not over it, unfortunately he lost his job offer for the Royal Navy due to the damage done to his heart. You're wasting your time and energy Sibon.
