Who remembers Penistone Road

Recommended Posts

Try a view from Neepsend Power Station, there's one looking down the valley 1932.

 

Found it.Cheers for that.Would you know it's position in regards to the Mills? The power station doesn't seem to be on the 1903 map.

the cafe was definately next to the baracks pub in 1982 cos I started work at Presto tools and I always went there for my lunch.
no it was on the corner of Burton St and Penistone Rd

Picture 4, Neepsend Power Station, would say top right of picture, the power station didn't open till 1904.

Silver mills centre top, ABC streets to the left opposite the sharp bend in Club Mill Road.

 

If you join Britain from above you will be able to expand the photo's.

I lived on High House Road early 60's. Cuthbert Bank was at the top and Bamforth St at the bottom. The top of High House Rd also led to what we called "the tip" Had pigeon coops and a scrap yard which all led down to Penistone Rd.

 

did you know my brother peter and jenny clarke lived high house at that time??

A clearer view, if you click on picture 4 Neepsend Power Station, then on the top pic of nearby views, it shows a view from Hattersley & Ridge towards ABC streets.

Can anyone remember the ' Don Inn' at the corner of Penistone Rd and Bedford St ?

 

Well , that's where my club Sheffield United Harriers ( walking section) met weekly for training every Wednesday evening .You'll remember the Harriers walking in their famous

red and white hooped vests, pounding the streets of Hillsborough, Walkley, Foxhill, Grenoside,

Parson Cross, Ecclesfield.Firth Park , Lane Top, Shirecliffe and many more places.

 

It was the training on these Wednesday evenings that led me

to win the famous Sheffield ' Star Walk' setting the record time,

of which I am very proud to have been the record holder. :thumbsup: Owl.

:thumbsup: Hiya dobby, I knew John Eddershaw, very well .John was a distance walker.I've

walked with and against John in many , many long distance races .

The famous Manchester to Blackpool' race 52 miles of which John and myself along

with Norman Hopkinson won the team event and of which I myself just missed out

on breaking the record. John by the way was affectionally known by us team-mates

as " nid nod " because of the way he walked nodding his head. :thumbsup: Owl.
