Another video containing some of the work of my friend Adrian Wynn, who died in August, 2019. This was largely prompted by viewing some changes which are taking place in one of the few remaining areas in Sheffield to be untouched by redevelopment, but close enough to the Kelham Island area not be overly confident that it would never happen; it has. The area, indicated in the first, map, view in the video is located a short distance to the east of Kelham and close to the River Don at Millsands where the old derelict buildings next to it were centred on Love Street & Water Street. I noticed the ongoing work a couple of months ago but didn’t get round to having a look until the end of August, by which time things had ‘progressed’ a great deal.
Of course I always feel that any change like this is a great shame as it sees the old stuff ‘removed’ and there can be no quarter as the ‘new ‘ is ‘rung in’, and this, amongst other like-styled developments, destroys what Adrian described in his book, ‘Spurn Photographs 2005 – 2009’, as ‘a drift’-
‘…I’m a city photographer used to logging the drift in a landscape of elusive
utopias, picturing blocked sightlines and the erasure of industrial memory;
trying to wrest a visual metaphor from a derelict building or a plastering
whereas, for one reason or another, I’m a photographer who has spent a life ignoring the obvious, an elusive aspect overlooked, for the sake of expedience…
It’s to my regret that I haven’t given as much attention to what passes me by, all the time knowing there was probably ‘a visual metaphor to be wrested’ which was by-an-large, singularly ignored. To a large extent I have, over the last 10-12 years, attempted to remedy this and as part of that process have produced several landscape videos, available on Flickr and several thousand pictures related to the changing industrial/rail scene, in this and the somewhat wider area.
The ‘drift’ around the area took place close to midday on Sunday, 29th August, so the area was relatively quiet of traffic and, conveniently, on that day the sky was an overall grey, but bright, grey. I was at once surprised to the extent of which the demolition had already progressed, with all the buildings photographed four years ago on 3rd September, 2017, having been demolished; I should have come here earlier and taken some shots in the early stages of the clearance. The video contains 49 pictures, 37 of which are mine, 32 from August 29th and 5 from 3rd September, 2017, 9 of Adrian’s shots from various times between 1990 and 2019 and 3 additional shots from other sources one of which is a map of the area, at the very beginning.
The background ‘accompaniment’ is one I feel Adrian would have approved of, ‘Micky Moody – Acid Test’. In addition, IU can only, once more, recommend Adrian’s book, ‘A View of Sheffield, 1982-1992’ published by ‘Pickard Communications’ and while it lasts, a visit to the Weston Park Gallery to see the exhibition, ‘The Sheffield Project: Photographs of a Changing City 1981-1991’, with the work shown from 15 photographers who were present at that time, including Adrian; the exhibition was extended to the end of the year, 28th November, 2021, due to the closure of the gallery late last year until Spring this year, due to restrictions imposed from the Covid-19 pandemic. Some information, about the exhibition is here-
A a catalogue of the work is also available.
1. The first is a shot of an OS street map, so the viewer unfamiliar with the area can get an idea where the various parts of Riverside and Millsands are located, the blue square, approx. 400m on a side, highlights the exact location and is centred on the Bridge Street area of Riverside and Millsands; Love Street, Water Street & Plum Lane all featured in the video. This map is however 18 years old and much has happened in this area during that time, particularly with respect to the building of a ring road, stretching through the area at left from West Bar, along what used to be Corporation Street and over the River Don just to the north of Spitalfields; this is the A61 Ring Road. Running diagonally across the map frame from centre right, to upper centre, is the black line marking the ‘Stocksbridge Branch’ line of the old Woodhead route, the line passing through the old old Victoria Station, off the map to the right; many other well-known and notable streets and their contemporary occupants can be seen.
2. A shot from around the 1980s showing two of the most notable buildings at the north-western end of Love Street, in the distance is West Bar and on the right the Britannia Works and the easily identifiable arch and where once, ‘Dixon’s Mint Rock’ was made, the works were on the corner of Love Street and Water Street which passes the building to the lower right. On the other side of Water Street, with the easily identifiable blind on one of its windows, see my own shot later on, was the building occupied by the ‘Century Drill Works’; it is remarkable it survived so long, over 20 years after ‘Britannia Works’ was demolished. The brown building with the red doors in the distance is still extant and in the 1950s was the Police & Fire Station, it continued as such until the late 1970s but ‘Peter House’, as it was called had lost this function by 1983. It is now given over to multi-purpose use, one of which is the ‘National Emergency Services Museum’. The Britannia Works picture is from www.picturesheffield.com, image v02675.
3-5. The next 3 shots show my first views on arrival, after trying to find somewhere to park, with ‘Plum Lane’ still prominent, in the S3 area of Sheffield, the shots looking to the north-west and showing the extent of the now the large area of now historically derelict land with activity on-going to re-develop the site. Standing in the background in these shots, to left, the the Sheffield Magistrates Court and to right, the tall building was once the old Sheffield Workhouse, then ‘The Doss House’ and now, ‘Mayfair Court’, re-developed into flats. The rear of ‘Egginton Brothers Ltd’, see-
cutlery manufacturers on Love Street, was at that stage, pretty much all gutted and as usual on this type of site, the Buddleia is starting to populate the area; at least it makes the site look a little prettier amongst all the ‘carnage’; I think ‘Plum Lane’ is now definitely a ‘dead end’.
6-9. Looking into the site from Bridge Street and its easy to see what kind of accommodation is being erected in the right distance, as expected there will be housing, the whole area is turned over to that in one form or another, some, not acceptable to the early residents who were under the impression it was to have socially well designed spaces; i.e not small, cramped tiny flats for one person! The redeveloped ‘Doss House’ can be seen standing dominant in the background at the corner of Love Street with, on the right, the well-gutted ‘Egginton Bros’ building. Shot 8 shows the view along Bridge Street with Millsands over on the right in the distance. #33, on the nicely designed stone arch of ‘Egginton Bros’ stands defiant and it may just be that the facade of the building is to be retained. One can only hope…
10. A very special shot. Adrian Wynn’s view taken in 1992 at the corner of Love Street and Spring Street which ran parallel to Water St. at the other side of the works. The last two windows of ‘Britannia Works’ can be seen at right with the rendering looking in need of some TLC, which it will never receive. This shot appears in Adrian’s book on Sheffield and I have admired it from the first time I saw it. What a place to have a ‘Cherry Flan’ and a cuppa, amidst all the late 80s and early 90s mayhem which beset Sheffield after Thatcher had destroyed most of the heavy industry, coal, steel and other traditional industries which at that time Sheffield was attempting to recover from. It took a very long time for this process to provide jobs for the many 10s of thousands of displaced workers, and its still not over, 40 years later. ‘TDR Transmission Engineers’ is next door on the left and at the back, again, the tall Sheffield ‘Doss House’, now the ‘Mayfair Court’ flats. I think the board to the right of the ‘Cherry Flan’ is advertising what must have been, a that time, BBC Radio Two FM, I am unaware of any other radio station with ‘Two’ in its name, in the early 1990s in Sheffield. The two complimentary coloured cars in the ‘Private Car Park’, add that little extra to the scene, the red one is an Austin Mini-Metro Panel Van, windows blocked off, and the green one, a Ford Cortina, registration MJX 532W, the ‘W’ being the year the car was 1st registered, 1980 in this case and so is 12 years old.. all now long gone of course, from 30 years ago.
11. My picture taken from the corner of Love Street and Water St. on 3rd September, 2017 with the ‘Britannia Works’ area in front of the camera and the ‘Cherry Flan’ cafe and its surrounding buildings were where the brown fence is located. The corner of the ‘Century Drill Works’ building is seen at right, unfortunately the cast iron ‘Love St.’ nameplate on the wall of the ‘Britannia Works’ building was lost when it was demolished finally between 1999 and 2002, as shown in Google Earth views; if it was now, its something I would have considered having a look around for! The ‘Britannia Works’ was initially an electro-plate manufacturer and latterly, a confectionery maker, famous for ‘Dixons Mint Rock’ and other notable sugary confections of the time. As some kind of recompense for the lost building and the cafe, a poster for ‘The Lady Boys of Bangkok’ has been put on the roller blind of the ‘Century Drill Works’, the blind is also visible in the 2nd of these shots from the 1980s, 20 years before ‘Britannia Works’ was demolished. I had made a slight error here originally in that I had thought Adrian had taken his picture from this exact spot, in fact none of the historic shots seen here matched this location. In fact his shot was taken from the corner of the next street up, ‘Spring Street’, and the building on the corner in his, the last shot, wasn’t the ‘Drill Works’, but the corner of the still extant ‘Britannia Works’. If he had still been around of course, I would simply have asked him! He also states in his Blog that ‘Britannia Works’ was demolished shortly after he had taken his picture from the front of the building in 1992, it can be seen here later on towards the end in shot 42, but in fact it wasn’t demolished soon after, but between 1999, when it appears on the Google Earth view, along with the white, ‘Cherry Flan ‘ cafe and 2002, when it and the cafe have both been demolished and the area cleared….
12-19. Back around the corner on Love Street towards Bridge Street and the limit of exploration is now evident. The Magistrates court stands on the left behind what is yet another small car park in this area but was once a Crane Hire business. The ‘On-line’ special car-parking deal doesn’t seem to be attracting many customs though at this time it was relatively easy to find free parking on a Sunday. The gates were removed at one stage and Adrian states in his Blog that they didn’t reappear, but clearly they did, with the distinctive, ‘CRANES’, wording on the old cast iron gates; a clean and a re-paint would be in order though. The rest of Love Street is now closed off for the redevelopment process.. shame, fancied a climb over the rubble heaps. Sone views through the wire fencing which was relatively easy to do showing, in the background towards Riverside, what’s possible to view whilst in the foreground, past history has been summarily dispensed with. Shot 15 shows at centre, the corner of Love St. where the ‘Century Drill Works’ building was located, extending to the right until recently towards the old site of Britannia Works, between Water Street & Spring Street. The last shot, 19, in this section shows the view back out from the ‘Crane Hire’ yard towards Millsands and the end of the ‘Egginton Bros’ building; in both senses of the word ‘end’; the area is never going to look the same again…
20-22. As there is no longer any access along Love Street, its back towards Bridge Street and now making for ‘Love Square’, the ‘epicentre’, gateway to the once historic area. The red-brick buildings ahead on Bridge Street, are alongside the River Don, the area know as ‘Riverside’, with ‘Millsands’ off to the left along Bridge Street. I think it would have been worthwhile trying to retain the facade of the old ‘Egginton Brothers’ works as it has some rather worthwhile features and the brickwork doesn’t look in a bad state either. Its a quiet Sunday morning and walking along Bridge St. to Love Square reveals two aspects of society one, at left, a guy having opened the skip door, is trying to see if there are any useful ‘pickings’ to be had within the skip; the contents look somewhat ‘electrical’ though. Whilst the other aspect is a small crowd of bemused on-lookers watching what is of interest to the other character, possibly homeless by the look of his attire and hefty backpack, ‘Signs of the Times’?
23. At Love Square in 2018 and a picture by Adrian Wynn. At that time, probably early on in the year when the plantings hadn’t fully come out and the scene around looks a little barren. ‘Love Square’ marked and area known as ‘The Valley of Beer’ due to the close proximity of riverside industries in past and present times related to brewing. The ‘Exchange Brewery’ is on Bridge St. at the far end right next to ‘Lady’s Bridge’ over the River Don, the brewery was originally founded in 1820 and taken over by ‘Tennant Bothers’ in 1840 and subsequently taken over by ‘Whitbread & Co. Ltd.’ in 1961 with 700 tied houses to become ‘Whitbread East Pennines’; they closed the brewery in 1993 and the building is now largely converted into office space. Of note during the Whitbread era-
‘… the head brewer was the well known, Harold Burkinshaw who is remembered for creating the world famous ‘Gold Label Barley Wine’ which had the reputation of being the strongest product of its kind in the world and was in the Guinness book of records. The slogan for this Gold Label was ‘strong as a double scotch and half the price’ it is still sold in cans but in the past was only ever sold in ‘nips’ i.e. a 1/3rd pint bottle…’
24-29. My six shots were all taken at the end of August this year, 3 years after Adrian took his and the area has now ‘blossomed’ into a much more amenable location; though there is some weeding and tidying which wouldn’t go amiss. One of the pieces, the 1st in the sequence, has been graffiti’d, both not very well and completely inappropriate here, and the 2nd shot, No.25, has a piece missing on the right-hand side, compared to the shot taken by Adrian in 2018; bits could be next to the panel on the floor! The wild-flower garden surrounding the ‘Love Square’ name board and ‘totem’ is rather pleasant but in general I can’t help but feel the area has been neglected somewhat. Picture 28, which looks between the buildings on West Bar at left and Bridge St. at right, has a view over to the old ‘Sheffield Ski Slope’ area at Parkwood Springs, in the background. The last time I was up there, in January, 2020, the area was still derelict and accumulating a large amount of fly-tipped rubbish, with no sign of the proposed re-development… but there is this-
‘… An article in the ‘Sheffield Star’ newspaper of Thursday 22 July 2021, stated that two firms had agreed to run the ski slopes, chair lifts. a bobsleigh run and mountain bike trails when the site is eventually rebuilt. A further seven backers are set to sign up as soon as planning has been granted, these include an 80 bed hotel and a cycle shop and hire centre. The project depends on a new £6 million access road to the site with Sheffield City Council, Network Rail and land owners Viridor in negotiations. The project would have a one year build time and could be completed in early 2023….’
And the last shot, a close up of the central garden, name board and ‘totem’ with, in the right background, the ‘Egginton Bros’ building along Love St. undergoing demolition, as has already been seen. The Sheffield Magistrates court stands on the left behind the name board…
30-32. At Riverside again in 2018 and ‘Esteli Square’ at Riverside and the Mark Cooper tribute stone, picture by Adrian Wynn. I see little point in repeating the material which was posted by Adrian on his Blog relating to the circumstances of all this. Suffice it to say, Mark Cooper, was a file cutter who died in the March 1864 flood caused by the dam wall collapse at Dale Dyke on March 12th 1864, further north up the valley. He died some weeks after the flood not actually in it, but his circumstances had deteriorated afterwards and it is likely the flood was the main cause of his death. He is buried in Wardsend Cemetery but neither Adrian, in 2019 on the anniversary of his death on May 4th, nor myself the following year, could find any sign of it. This was even though we both had a good record, a Wardsend Burial and Plot Plan, of who was buried where; the main reason for failing, for both of us, is the extensive overgrown nature of the now derelict site. Mark Cooper’s place of work as a ‘file cutter’, in the Kelham Island area, can be seen on the right in this shot.
Two of my own shots follow Adrian’s showing a wider aspect view of the monument stone with the names of the deceased at the base, followed by a close-up version of the corner stone showing more detail of some of the other names of those who succumbed. It is fitting that this monument is located just here, just a few metres from the River Don’s waters flowing quietly passed on this day… 29th August, 2021.
33-35. Millsands as photographed in 1984/5 with a view of Riverside from 2018 by Adrian Wynn. The first two shots, in black-and-white, show the large ‘Millsands Steelworks’, forge & rolling mills, being demolished in 1984-85 with, in the 1st shot, ‘Holy Trinity Church’ in the background. In the second of the two shots, and in the same period, much of the steelworks demolition has taken place and now in the background over the other side of the River Don, the ‘Aizlewood’s Mill’ can be seen, built in around 1870 and now converted for office use. The smaller building on the left on the corner of Nursery Street & Spitalfields, alongside the River Don, is the former ‘Manchester Hotel’, still extant it is now the ‘The Harlequin’. To the left of Aizlewood’s Mill and the Harlequin, in the background, the mouth of the ‘Spittal Hill Tunnel’, nicknamed ‘Fiery Jack’, can be seen, and to its right the railway bridge carrying the lines out of the old Sheffield Victoria Station site, home to the once electrified ‘Woodhead’ lines to Manchester. The line closed in 1981 and here, almost all the electrification gantries have been removed, though a substantial one, above the railway bridge, can just about be made out. ‘Spittal Hill Tunnel’ connected the GCR’s Woodhead lines at Bridgehouses, down a very steep incline, 1 in 40, with the Midland Lines at Wicker Goods Yard and the old Midland Station site. The large Bridgehouses goods yard was on the left of the pictures and had a connection to the Aizlewood Mill at a high level. All this area was subsequently excavated and space made for the A61 Sheffield ring road, it now dominates the scene from the Kelham Island area, over the river on ‘Corporation Bridge’ and on through the Wicker, to meet the A57, Sheffield Parkway in the Victoria Quays area, the A61 itself is also known as ‘Derek Dooley Way’. The last of the three shots, taken in 2018, in this section shows the view south-eastward along the river with Riverside on the right and ‘The Harlequin’ pub on Nursery St. and Aizlewood’s Mill on the left. The hi-level green painted doorway on the left of the Aizlewood Mill, believe it or not, was where the foot-bridge access to the Bridgehouses Goods Yard once existed and on the railway side a couple of lines passed through what must have been an-loading shed and lift to bring material up and across Spitalfields, and into the Aizlewood Flour Mill.
36-37. My own views to the Riverside area looking north in the opposite direction to the shots from Adrian’s 1984/5 & 2018 pictures. Mine were taken on the 15th October 2017 and 29th August this year, respectively. The green paint scheme on the Aizlewood building is still the same as it was in 2018 and in front of it, ‘Holy Trinity Church’ looking as good as ever. A view of the Mill can be seen from October 2017 when I took more shots in the area with views looking downstream as well. These can be viewed in the ‘Views-in-Camera – II’ video, from 2017 here-
the video will have to be downloaded however, to see the relative section, starting at 3m 58secs from the beginning…
The austere looking ‘Riverside House’ is on the right in the foreground and looking like it needs a new owner and a bit of TLC, something sadly it didn’t get. The second shot, 4 years later, at the end of August this year, shows the view upstream with ‘The Harlequin’, the ‘Aizlewood Mill’, & ‘Holy Trinity Church’ on Nursery St. still there but now with ‘Riverside House’ having been demolished in the intervening period, leaving the area free for… another car park. Running along the scene from right to left in the background, now looking very overgrown at this time of the year, is the railway bridge carrying the singled Stocksbridge Branch line out of the Sheffield Victoria site and through the large plot of land, still for sale, which was the home of Bridgehouses Goods Yard.
38 & 39. A ‘Then & Now’ pair of shots, the first by Adrian again, this time from 2008 and followed by my own which, remarkably, is almost identical, the latter taken on 8th September, 2019. The Sheffield Magistrates Court, the ‘CRANES’ signage on the gate and ‘Mayfair Court’ are all in both pictures with mine also including the ‘Century Drill Works’ and its window roller blind, seen earlier, on the right-hand side of the shot. As was usual with Adrian, he liked his skies grey, producing ‘flat light’, unlike mine which I prefer to have a little ‘drama’ in if possible without detracting from the focus of the image itself. There are _actual_ cranes in both shots, separated by 11 years, and this has continued to the present as the Kelham Island and Shalesmoor areas are still under continual redevelopment, with Love St. now no exception…
40-41. Looking back along Love St. on 8th September, 2019 and the ‘Woollens for Signs & Graphics’ building is still standing though it’s possibly a while since it was last used by them, their current address being on Shepcote Lane at Tinsley. In the background is the old ‘Century Drill Works’ and at left, the old ‘CRANES’ yard is now cheap parking area, as they all are around here.. This is now only 2 years away from redevelopment when all the parking spaces will be taken over and the scene changes here beyond recognition, as these views are attempting to show. Its probably time for a return walk around the area.. The next of these two shots, #41, shows the fences have gone up by the end of August this year and now all the places where a lot of these shots were taken, is off-limits to the camera. Looking at this shot, there must be a very decent view over the site from the upper floor of the Sheffield Magistrates Court on the left… Hmmmmm! In the background, standing tall, the old ‘Sheffield Doss House’, now ‘Mayfair Court. Get yer on-line special all-day parking special from ‘RCP Parking Ltd’, the price having dropped from £5.50 in September 2019 to now £4.00 in August, 2021, perhaps they realise the ‘writing is on the wall’ or gate as it is here.
42-43. The front of the ‘Britannia Works’ building, as photographed by Adrian Wynn in 1992. The front entrance has a very distinctive ‘mustard yellow’ main gate with the works name over the top and the whole thing looking ready for demolition. It didn’t happen for around 10 years though, even though Adrian said in his Blog, it was demolished soon after.. I suspect he just didn’t get around to going back here after this shot was taken in 1992. The Google Earth view for December 1999 shows this building and off to its left on the other side of Spring St., the ‘Cherry Flan’ cafe still present. However, by December 2002, the corresponding Google Earth view shows a derelict site where the Britannia Works once was and a car park on all of the land parallel to Corporation St., the ‘Cherry Flan’ once occupying the near-side corner. I assume Adrian never saw these aerial shoots which confirm the demolition date between 2000 and December 2002…. The next of these two shots shows a view of Britannia Works, once a Metal Plate Works, as it may have looked in the early days after it had been taken over by a confectioner, ‘Maxons’, see-
who produced, amongst other sweets, the well known, ‘Dixons Mint Rock’. The artwork is by Joe Scarborough(b. 1938), and the picture, painted in 1971 I believe, is from Artuk.org, see-
At left, where the policeman is standing is Spring Street and at right is Water Street, on the other side of which is the ‘Century Drill Works’. I like this painting a lot, and it seems to capture those times very well and what’s more, the cast iron ‘Love St.’ name plate is on the wall. and there are two of the old gas lamps standing prominent outside the main works entrance as well…
44-46. And from two of the pictures taken in September, 2017, a composite view over the northern end of the Love St. area, this added at the last minute to include the bright green Co-op van. It is just about to pass behind the fence of a small compound, erected just about where the ‘Cherry Flan’ cafe was situated on the corner of Spring St. and Love St. at far left. In the fenced compound on this side of Spring St. was the building of the ‘Britannia Works’, seen in the earlier shots and at far right, on this side of Water St., was the ‘Century Drill Works’, its roller blind now desporting, temporarily, a poster advertising the ‘Lady Boys of Bangkok’ in ‘Red Hot Kisses’, and were ‘performing’ at the Sabai Pavilion on Devonshire Street in Sheffield, from Sunday 23rd November to Saturday 6th December in 2014, tickets from £18… this item had been awaiting a usage in some picture at some stage… and this was it! Now the ‘Drill Works’ has gone as well and removed the last vestige of the past times and what it looked like here in this quite small area near the River Don, though the adjacent Millsands Steelworks’ were by no means ‘small’. The next two shots show the devastation of the scene now after the removal of the remaining historic buildings along Love St. with what looks like a robust steel girder awaiting the cutters torch. Behind, a caravan which is presumably the security officer for the site with, to its right, another structure waiting for the arrival of the oxyacetylene torch to reduce it to so much scrap… The third shot in this section shows the area where the green Co-op van was passing and now the compound, the car parks and all else have been swept away and the area along the far side of Spring St., fenced off as part of the demolition area; a car park lies beyond on the last piece of land and now all-day parking has been reduced in cost to only £3!
47-48. Back at the Riverside end of the site and a panoramic view of the whole area again, with Plum Lane heading into the centre of the demolition; I suspect this may well be lost once the new construction work starts. Prominent on the left is the Sheffield Magistrates Court with the old ‘Police/Fire Station’ at centre and finally ‘Mayfair Court’ at right with the old steel-framed building waiting for the cutter’s torch. There can’t have been a time over the last.. 20 years or so, when the Sheffield skyline in this, and other areas, hasn’t had a high reach jib crane poking into the sky… I have wondered over this area several times over the last few years, usually on a quiet Sunday morning and have taken pleasure in the memories the place holds from past ‘glories’. Now those will be lost as the ‘new order’ rises and yet another space in Sheffield is, very probably, given over to high-rise living accommodation, in the main, hope there’s going to be somewhere to sit, a garden maybe, with some indications and artifacts of what this place used to be…
49. The final view. One of the old buildings on Nursery St, ‘Riverside House’, further down on the left, has now been demolished but here, on the opposite side of the the River Don on the same side, and near Lady’s Bridge, is a remaining relic from the past. This shot was taken on the 15th October 2017, though thankfully it was still there in September, 2020, with a ‘For Sale’ sign on the front, viewable on Google Earth… it may well be prudent to go back soon, this weekend possibly, and find out what still remains.
This has taken a total of 36 hours to put together, starting just after the last set of photographs were taken on 29th August. With a lot of work on researching the accuracy of the details and checking what was what in terms of geographical location etc.. and bringing this all together into a coherent whole, I hope.! I am indebted to Adrian Wynn’s partner for permission to use his material and where appropriate, I have quoted the sources for other material. One piece of information I have yet to receive, having contacted the museum which it now is, is what is on the emblem above the main, red, doors of the old Police/Fire station building seen in the background in a few of the shots.. Will add this if I find out.. maybe a close up view next Sunday will reveal all.
