Kieth and Trevor Lemm lived with their mother who ran 'Lemm's' shop, which was at the corner of Upwell St and Carlisle St. As far as I am aware, when the shop was demolished, they moved to the bottem of Wincobank Lane.

Hi fleetwood, geotom and all,

 

I've just looked back over the last two or three pages and am now unsure whether Plum is part of a double barrelled surname for Keith Lemm or a nickname :huh:

Hi Peter, This 1st picture, what did they call this rd that led

to Carlisle rd, i never spent much time down this end when i lived

in Grimesthorpe. i'am not sure if it brought you out near the Wellington

pub.

Then as you crossed the rd it went straight up Moss St.

 

Next picture, Was this Rd Bland St and i think it met up at top left on Carlisle Rd.

I think both photos are taken from what was Adsetts Street (now Petre Street extention). The top one has Grimesthorpe school at the back. The older 'brown looking' building in both pictures is what was the old English Steel Corp's laboratory, then (1960's) corner Adsetts Street and Bland Street. The street that was opposite the bottom of Moss Street was Clevedon Street, I don't think in pictures.

Hi brian1941 and stpetre,

 

On your first pic Brian, Adsetts Street ran from the junction with Carlisle Road and in a straight line through the right hand metal fence and ended here in this pic where the camera man is on Grimesthorpe Road with the police box behind him. The school is to his right on where Carlisle Road becomes Earl Marshall Road....

On your second pic Brian, Bland Street was the first junction on the left of Adsetts Street shown here....

 

http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=zoomWindow&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s13578&prevUrl=

 

and came out at the junctions of Hunsley Street and Carlisle Road.

 

The second left on Adsetts Street was Draper Street and the third and last left was Clevedon Street which is shown here....

 

http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=zoomWindow&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s14446&prevUrl=

 

There is a pathway now on what was Clevedon Street. At the bottom of the street the steelworks wall can be seen where Clevedon Street has crossed Adsetts Street to a dead end. Today rough brickwork can be seen where ends of the houses either side of the street were attached to this wall.

At the top of Clevedon Street is the Wellington which is left of the pic.

A right and immediate left across Carlisle Road would take you to Moss Street as shown here...

The present Petre Street curves across this area.

 

I've tried to be brief at the risk of confusion. Please let me know if you get lost :hihi:

 

Peter.
