Now that the manic Christmas season is over I’m glad to be out and about in Burngreave again. But, you’ll never guess what has happened? I’ve got lost!
I’m touching an object of black painted steel about six metres high, weighing about five tons. Thousands of cars pass it every day one way on a busy A road. It bears the name of its manufacturer named after a local place about a mile away from where this object now stands near to where it spent its working life from 1947.
Its renovation began in 1994. Many of our local people from Spital Hill to Page Hall and from a long way beyond will remember hearing this powerful object pounding away incessantly through the night.
