. . . then and now book
Using over 100 original colour images. I have tried to find the exact locations of some of these now demolished drinking establishments to produce a then and now format book. Places like the Broughton Inn which was sited where the corner of the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena car park now stands – The Hole in the Wall now literally, itself, a hole in the wall just before the Wicker, The Hare and Hounds Nursery Street where, at the time just before going to press, I took an image of the rubble of the demolished pub with just the letter H of the pub sign still on view. The Beehive in Wadsley is now a Tesco supermarket which the last landlady stated was the very reason for the closure, cheap alcohol. Other now defunct old pubs are being used as businesses, turned into apartments, flats and houses. A prime example is the Haychatter Inn in Bradfield which is now a private dwelling known as Haychatter House. The Furnival on Verdon Street has been re-launched as a religious establishment The Methodist Church of Sheffield.
I hope you are reminded of some of the good times you had in these old Sheffield public houses and hopefully go out and take some photographs yourself of the places that are there one minute and gone the next.
The list within the book is in alphabetical order A to L of Sheffield public houses. List M to Y is the in volume two.
