But the real Bradway was clustered round the top of the Lane, just a tiny chunk of the area greyed (sorry - pinked) in the above map. Here was a shop ...
There was a school ...
The Bradway Inn (once the Miners Arms) has changed a bit ...
And at "Lower Bradway", the lodge of the Beauchief Hall estate ...
Sheffield Tramways and Motors (i.e. Sheffield Transport) bought out the business of Mr Glossop which included a bus service via Millhouses and owler Bar to the village pf Holmesfield. It gained route number 46 but was soon abandonned in favour of a route via Meadowhead and Bradway. (Service 22).
Service 22 adopted its familiar route via Abbeydale Road, Archer Road, Hutcliffe Wod Road, Bocking Lane and Bradway; but remember (how could you forget) that this was the real bradway as expounded by fbb above.
A new service began (numbered 86) via Bradway to Dronfield Woodhouse continuing via Stubley and back to Sheffield via Chesterfield Road. This operated 9 journeys each day (5 on Sunday) but in both directions. By this date, extra 22s were running to Bradway (Golf House), i.e.opposite the Bradway Hotel.
A new service (59) began to serve developing housing at Greenhill, terminating on Reney Avenue ...
This brief and somewhat expurgated history takes us the the point (early sixties) when a keen and alert student who later became f and a bb arrived in Sheffield. One small piece of the jigsaw needs to be added. A new "council" estate was developed on the southern edge of the city called Low Edges.
This estate was given its very own bus route (38) via Chesterfield Road which started in 1954.
We will summarise all this in a simple (?) fbb map, drawn in the style of later Sheffield Transport bus maps ...
Tim Dodds from Go North East said: "It's a simple fact that the local authorities simply can't afford to run this bus contract scheme. Inside 10 years this scheme will bankrupt the bus system."
· Nexus failed to comply with the statutory requirements on consultation
· the proposed scheme cannot demonstrate that it would increase use of bus services because its affordability is not demonstrated
· the proposed scheme does not provide value for money
· the proposed scheme imposes disproportionate adverse effects on operators
In the voluntary partnership agreement, Nexus can be proud that it has led 3 bus companies to put forward a proposal that is in itself novel and groundbreaking, with the makings of potentially effective governance allowing local citizens real influence over their bus services.
