What Type Of Houses Were On The Old Talbot Road Woodhouse

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what type of houses stood on Tilford Road (Formerly Talbot Road) in Woodhouse before they were demolished in the 1960's?

 

Also where was Buck Croft in Woodhouse?

 

My ancestors moved up from Staffordshire in the late 1880's to Buck Croft and later moved into Talbot Road which I believe is now Tilford Road.

 

I would love to know how the road developed.

 

Help Appreciated     PopT

They look like terraced houses in 1956, probably similar to the existing ones on the other side of the road.

hi pop, are you ready? to the best of my memory the houses were terraced back to backs. the name tilford i am not sure where this came from, ata guess it would have arrived when sheffield did a land grab, maybe 1930s.talbot road was named for the talbot family, earl of shrewsbury who owned vast amounts of land in the area. remember mary, queen of scots being held at sheffield? the manor park belonging them was massive and the outer edge reached handsworth. going further back there was a cottage that housed the esate deer keeper, hence buck croft
