Have your say An old graveyard in Sheffield has been put up for sale by church leaders. The overgrown burial ground in Attercliffe, which has been unused for many years, must rank as one of the strangest offerings on the property market. A map showing the extent of the plot for sale Walker Singleton The sqm plot, which lies off Lawrence Street and is surrounded by commercial and industrial units, is being sold by the United Reformed Church URC.
There is no guide price listed for the land and it is not known what use any potential buyer may have in mind, though there are strict regulations surrounding the conversion of old burial grounds. The graveyard formerly belonged to Zion Congregational Church, and it is understood the church building at the site was demolished many years ago, after being sold in The church itself has since been part of the Church of Christ in Darnall, which is jointly run by the Anglican, Methodist and United Reformed churches.
A URC spokesperson said: It is not known how many people are buried on the grounds, or when the last burial took place, according to a URC spokesperson. Graveyards elsewhere have been used for a variety of purposes following their sale, including as an extension to the buyer’s garden, pasture for sheep and a car park. The plot in Attercliffe is being marketed by Walker Singleton, and the closing date for offers is Friday, February Prospective buyers can call for more information.

This farm forms the background for several pictures from this Divisional Camp, most notably the Brigade Church Parade and Inspections. The surrounding area of Derbyshire provided a variety of different landscapes and proved to be ideal for manoeuvres, indeed many of the training exercises were based close to Earl Sterndale, a small village about 4 miles march away.

The last pole lathe turner in England An interview with England’s last full-time pole lathe wood turner, Robin Wood. So, we were thrilled to have had the pleasure of meeting Robin at his workshop in Edale, to understand his craft, where he draws his inspiration from, and his thoughts on wood turning and, as Chairman of The Heritage Crafts Association, the future of traditional British craft in general. About Robin Wood Based in the Derbyshire Peak District, Robin Wood is an internationally respected wood worker who creates one-of-a-kind bowls and platters by hand, using local timbers and traditional techniques but with a distinctive modern twist.
Whilst working in woodland conservation for the National Trust, clearing and replanting woodlands in Kent after the storm, Robin became fascinated by the craft, and inspired by British and Scandinavian techniques, set about reviving the technique of bowl making using a pole lathe, first learning the blacksmithing skills required to forge the specialised turning tools.
Rather than merely making bowls as ornaments for the sole purpose of displaying spectacular colours and grain patterns in wood, Robin makes pieces that are down-to-earth and unpretentious, created to be cherished for generations, intended to develop a patina that can only be formed by regular use and handling. Image courtesy of Robin Wood Robin is passionate about traditional British crafts, and is currently the Chairman of the Heritage Crafts Association, a body set up to provide a focus for all people who care about the loss of traditional skills to provide a sustainable framework for the future.

We lost many footballs and tennis balls that year, as the blanket ban on disturbing the archaeology remained in force. Looking back nearly 20 years later as a professional archaeologist, the significance of the those excavations remains strong, Anyone who studies Anglo-Saxon archaeology or church archaeology will have heard of Repton, Martin Biddle and Birthe Kjolbye-Biddle.
This is not a site report on the Repton excavations. It is to show to my generation of Reptonians what was going on under those covers and sheets, and hopefully explain why we could never retrieve our tennis balls. To those not of our generation this article is intended to demonstrate the archaeological significance of Repton School, and what the discoveries there have meant. There are many aspects of Repton School that imply some antiquity. The church of St Wystan is visibly mediaeval in date, and the village itself has a market cross of similar date outside the school grounds.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Police believe they may have thwarted a Christmas terror attack plot with the arrest of four men, it was reported. The men were arrested on suspicion of plotting an Islamist terror attack as armed police carried out a series of dramatic pre-dawn raids and a bomb squad inspected a residence over fears it contained explosives.
Anti-terror police worked with MI5 as they detained three men aged 22, 36 and 41, at different addresses in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, while a year-old man was arrested in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The arrests – on the one-year anniversary of the Berlin Christmas market attack – come after the terror group ISIS urged its supporters to kill innocent people at Christmas markets and other tourist attractions in Europe and the US.

Rock of ages, cleft for me An insight into the history, craft and splendour of dry stone walling. Dry stone wall near Askrigg, Yorkshire Dales. My earliest memory of dry stone walls comes from when I was about 8 years old, when on holiday in the Yorkshire Dales; I found a baby shrew sat on a stone protruding out of one of the dry stone walls near to where we were having a picnic. I was told by my mother that it probably lived in the wall, and I was puzzled and transfixed as to how an animal could actually live in the middle of a wall.
Many birds too, such as the robin, wheatear and redstart, and the occasional small owl, have been known to occupy larger gaps, with mosses, lichens and ferns favouring the outside of the walls. I vaguely recollect asking my mother lots of other related questions, such as how the walls managed to stand up what with all the gaps in them, where all the stone came from to build them, who built them, and why they were built in the first place.
The fact they were built a long, long time ago, and the animals and plants made the wall their home, or used them as hiding places from predators, was about all I remember from my early questions. Brown hare on dry stone wall, Peak District. Image courtesy of Benjamin Andrews via Flickr.

I first became interested in workhouses while researching my family history. I discovered that my great-great-grandfather had died in a workhouse and that his death had been registered by the matron. I also became fascinated by the buildings after seeing an old Victorian Ordnance Survey map of the town where I then lived. At the edge of town was a huge hexagonal shape which dwarfed everything in the area.
Eager to discover more, I visited the local libraries but found that they had precious little information about the large and fearsome building which had stood there for the best part of a century.
