I used to catch the number 2 from Malin Bridge through Rivelin and got off at Coldwell Lane, near Crosspool.  I think the number 2 took us to Norton  to see Joe Cocker at the local dance on a Saturday night.

This list of fares from the 1954 bus timetable gives the route of the Nos. 2 & 3 Outer Circle. The complete circle continued until 1970 when the section between Malin Bridge and Coldwell Lane was missed out.

101 - Pond St to Gleadless via Hurlfield Rd

102    Pond st to Gleadless via Gleadless Common

105 - Pond St to Arbourthorne.

61      Southey- City- Nether Edge via Washington Road

The 100's were AEC Bridgemasters if I remember correctly?

Hillsbro, I wonder if you have a similar list for the number 9 circular please, during the 1950's? See my recent post.

Thanks, T.

There were only a handful (five or six at most) in STD's fleet (numbered something like 521-525?)

More likely to have been AEC Regent Vs operating svcs. 101 onwards.

STD were loyal to AEC and Leyland, a brief period running Bristol buses mainly departing from Bridge Street on the 57 Stocksbridge route.

Hi Hillsboro,

Thanks that's exactly what I wanted. Once again you've come up with the goods, as I guessed you would!

Best Wishes, T.

To get to Penistone Road from Moonshine Lane (2 or3) the buses would go down- Herries Road towards Wednesday's ground, was there a regular stop on that stretch?

85 To Gainsborough ran until 1986 and was every 2 hours daily from Sheffield to Gainsborough

The No: 20 that you can't remember was probably the No: 20 that was introduced in 1968 and ran to Southey Green to complement the No:97 but ran through part of Pitsmoor ie: Ellesmere Road-Scott Road. I can't recall where the other end of the route was.
