>The Picture Sheffield web site has some interesting photos of what they describe as the Deer Park boundary, that is a dry stone wall that once ran across Black Banks.
I would say there is some doubt to this claim ! The wall appears to be in extremely good condition, considering the passage of time. The Park underwent dramatic changes during the 17th century i.e. tree removal and general landscape change and possible removal of the boundary.
Does anyone have memories of this dry stone wall which I presume would have stood in some sort of form up until the commencement of the construction of the Norfolk Park estate ?
The main contradiction stems from the construction of a 17th century map which shows the boundary following the line of the footpath which runs from the rear of the Ball Inn up to Myrtle Springs and beyond along Hurlfield Hill to Manor Top.
