Episode Two: A priest walks into a Starbucks…

It’s Halloween and much like Terminator 2, our second podcast is better than our first. We talk to Adam, who has a lifelong fascination with Carbrook Hall, one of Sheffield’s most haunted buildings. Handy then, that’s he is working in John Bright’s former gaff as a barista in the revamped Starbucks. We ask, has Adam always been there? Seeing as we recorded it in the plotting room in eyrie silence, why are there so many voices in the background?


Notes: John Bright was famously the man who laid siege to Sheffield Castle. He is known to have hosted roundheads in the plotting room.

Carbrook Hall is in Attercliffe Common Sheffield and is well worth a visit, regardless of the spook factor.

Episode one: Two Rivers

our first podcast was appropriately recorded where the city first began, on the confluence of the River Don and the River Sheaf. This was where the Sheaf Field emerged and gave Sheff its name. Many years later, in 1912, the Blonk Street toilets were appropriate placed right in the heart of the River Don. They survived world war bombs and a century of were before becoming derelict. But now the Blonk Street bogs have a glorious future in the hands of Chris, who has turned it into a fantastic cafe bar called Two Rivers. What better place to start a new part of Sheffield history?
