  5. Holmebank Chert Mine What an end to a day exploring some underground stuff, been here before but didnt really get any photos so was nice to spend enough time down there to get a set and get to play with some lazers and s**t Explored wit @-Raz- @Hydro3xploric and 2 non members History Early 19th-century extraction at Holme Bank was from quarries but commercial mining was in place by 1867, when the site was known as Bakewell Chert Mine. Later it was also referred to as Smith's Mine, after the owner. The workings consisted of an extensive system of passages with eight entrances. In 1925, 41 men were employed but 20 years later only 21 were at work. Approximately half worked underground. Between the two World Wars, mining broke out on the surface, enabling the chert to be quarried alongside limestone. In its later years Holme Bank met a considerable demand for poultry grit. The mine closed between 1959 and 1961 but a block-making plant, trading as Smith’s Runners, remained in operation, using existing supplies of chert. Enjoy guys thanks guys

  7. Hello all Had a fun explore today with @-Raz- and a couple of non members not very many pictures for you unfortunatley but a nice little video i put together to substitute History Construction began in 1957.The City Council published a brochure on the scheme which was in several languages, including Russian.To maintain a strong sense of community, neighbours were re-homed next door to each other and old street names from the area were re-used (e.g. Gilbert Row, Long Henry Row). Cobbles from the terraced streets surrounded the flats and paved the pathways down the hill to Sheffield station and tramlines. Park Hill was previously the site of back to back, a mixture of 2–3-storey tenement buildings, waste ground, quarries and steep alleyways. Facilities were poor, with one standpipe supporting up to 100 people. It was colloquially known as "Little Chicago" in the 1930s, due to the incidence of violent crime there. clearance of the area began during the 1930s but was halted due to WWII Enjoy
