Granville Lane-Park Area.

Recommended Posts

Any one recall where Granville Lane (if it existed) was, perhaps in the South Street area till mid/late 1950s ?

My Sheffield Street Guide gives the location of Granville Lane as, 34, Bungay Street, Park to Shrewsbury Road.

This could be pre 1939. Hope this is of some help.

Here is a link to an early-1900s map showing the location of Granville Lane behind the railway station. https://i.postimg.cc/DyTc14Jg/001a.jpg   The "picturesheffield" website has some 1940s/50s photos of Granville Lane - here is a link to one of them. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s02658&pos=7&action=zoom&id=6299

Still exists, according to Google maps.

I also noticed that it is still shown on Google maps (though higher up the hill than its 1950s location) but I couldn't find any street-level views of Granville Lane. Also. the Royal Mail website doesn't list any postcodes for Granville Lane. Maybe a mistake by Google?

It looks like its still technically there but its now just serves as the tram route at the back of the Station.

Would explain why theres no streetview on Google maps.

The tram route is actually along what was Granville Street. The answer seems to be that what appear on Google maps as Bungay Street and Granville Lane are actually paths in "South Street Open Space". Here is a link to an aerial view from www.bing.com: https://i.postimg.cc/Bb3H1WT3/011.jpg
