  1. http://www.signalboxes.com/tinsley-south-signalbox-and-station.php He doesn't say what exactly the building was, i think its on the right on this picture if so looks more canal than railway. https://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=zoomWindow&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s26907&prevUrl= same buildings i think. https://www.sheffieldtelegraph.co.uk/news/tinsley-looks-back-sheffields-transport-heritage-471175
  2. In 1863 it was shown as "Hallam gate road" which now exists near by, the road seemed to have a real identity issue, probably due to the speed at which the area developed https://www.picturesheffield.com/maps.php?file=031 The block of houses are there then which to me indicates annie is spot on.
  3. Quite an enigma developing here, there is quite a few historical sites about the broomhall / broomhill area, they may be interested in this puzzle and perhaps offer some help. Annies suggestion seemed strange to me, it being on such a major road hard to see why houses built right on the side had the designation "terrace" so i had to have a look, even in the 1850's whitham road was classed as undefined and the houses weren't there. https://maps.nls.uk/view/102345217 So perhaps the houses were built in the 1860's whilst the road was undefined and the builder picked his own name "Windsor terrace" for his block - after all they had to be called something , this getting changed when the road was officially named some time before 1873.
  4. They used to have wood for sale in them.
  5. Another visit, it does seem a strange place to use, presumably for NGH - would it be able to land across from the childrens if the destination was over that end? It would be my luck to get picked of the top of a mountain (not very likely really) flown within half a mile of the hospital and end up in an ambulance stuck in the mud. Has the helipad gone from by the palliative care? Is there no where nearer a new pad could be set up with hard standing access, if not and this is the only place for it to land then we should be at least putting a tarmac road up to the pad. Best wishes to the passenger hope all's ok.
  6. Because it was so ridiculous i wouldn't have believed some one telling me and don't expect any one else to believe me without video evidence. Some thing that had to be seen to be believed.
  7. Just had the unfortunate experience of this ludicrous setup, all the way into town along it and back again only one cyclist was spotted and unbelievably he was riding on the footpath! All those bollards must have confused him. Never got car camera on when needed. The "not in touch with reality peeps" in charge of Sheffields roads need to realise many of us travel along Penistone road to get to the parkway and onward's, not to just go into the city centre. Like many I avoid Sheffield at all costs and wouldn't dream of taking a car there.
  8. If the link works this should show it. https://global.adsbexchange.com/?icao=407637 Right click the "k" on the right and it will give the altitudes and times. 750 feet over Shirecliffe.
  9. These are the two plane types Diamond DA42[9] and one Diamond DA62 of DEA aviation based out at Retford, flew up to Huddersield and back. Interestingly for whatever reason they were flying at half the altitude of the police plane circulating out at Treeton who i presume was looking for some one. I really must get a hobby or a life or something.
  10. I see you also use the metrinch measurement system, 5mm seems rather thin are you sure? they are some advertised at 10mm, i could measure ours tomorrow, sure its thicker than that. As it is to carry public footpath traffic there is probably a regulation/spec for it. Definitely try Switfy's , always worth a look around. If unable to get one to fit existing frame 2 possible options - dig out old frame and cement in new frame c/w grate or stainless fabrication to fit existing grate (secure well). They are often covered over but its good to keep open as ventilation for the cellar, perhaps not necessarily to the same degree as original so a drilled plate could suffice. Some put in a vertical vent and fill the hole in to stop water going in, something i have considered myself although the rate water comes in at through the walls its not going to achieve much. I doubt we will be going back to coal fires so don't need the shoot.
  11. I'll second that, i've tried several sprayers including electric, water based just doesn't like soaking into a vertical piece of wood. Also you still have to brush about 4 inches around the edge or it will end up covering what ever is on the other side of the fence, it took me a full day to polish the paint of my car my neighbour spayed it with, it still has some red spots on its matt surfaces. Another beauty of using the sprayer to put the treatment on the fence is it isn't dripping off the brush after dipping in the paint, I have thought about drilling a hole down the middle of a brush and connecting the spay pipe to it.
  12. My Dad lived on a farm at Bradfield during the war, he said they used to have an Italian POW that used to come and work on the farm. He was dropped off in the morning an would start walking back in the evening getting picked up on the way. One day on being dropped off they could see he wasn't very happy, asking him what was the matter he told them the the evening before the guards never came and he had to walk all the way back to the camp. Despite all the anti Britishness we keep getting we must have been doing something right in those days, - as a society i mean, obviously not pow guarding.
  13. Why does the SAR / Coastguard helicopter land at Parkwood springs still? Is it too big for the hospital landing pads?
  14. Other parts of country will be different transmitters so not really applicable to your case. Do you know which transmitter you are on- where abouts are you and which way is your Ariel pointing? This is an excellent site for information; https://www.aerialsandtv.com/knowledge/transmitters and their shop is here in Hillsborough. Do you have just the one TV fed from the one Ariel? if not are other TV's ok? are your neighbours receiving terrestrial tv ok ? (obviously if there are only using sky or cable or internet tv then not applicable) , Are you using a splitter to get the signal from one Ariel to more than one tv. If you identify your transmitter you can look for issues with that transmitter. If you go into your TVs setup menu you should find some where it shows the signal strength and quality, you may have strong signal but poor quality indicating interference. Check on all muxes being used especially the one carrying ITV channels. How modern is your Ariel and cabling, is it from the old analogue days in which case often not good enough for modern digital signal and the transmitted frequencys have changed so your ariel may struggle for some of the frequencies now being used and a more appropriate ariel needed (wider bandwidth) We have a TV in the kitchen which has a dodgy connection from its ariel socket to its circuit board which effects its reception ( i will get a round tuit one of these days, just keep wiggling it for now) it can be one or more of so many things.
  15. History will remember it all started in Llandudno.
