Hi,

New to this forum but have been dappling in the sepia arts for a while. Been wondering if there was some kind of community in Sheffield so delighted to find this one!

I take it you still meet at the Queen's Head, ie that this has not moved anywhere else? If so I hope to see you on Thursday!

Nope. Still there, every thursday from 6 (although tbh me and lientie are both usually there a bit before). I look forwards to seeing you. Even though I shall be most likely be slightly more polychromatic than usual.
I made a note in my diary on the way over here. Simply says; "Bugger!"

Well, nice to meet you all last night - or should I say 5 of you? But then small gatherings are better for remembering names...

We talked about a possible outing to Bakewell - here are some links to bus timetables:

http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&ItemID=4497&libID=4494 (via Broomill/ Crosspool)

http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&ItemID=4298&libID=4295 (via Hunter's Bar/ Ecclesall - also includes services to Matlock)


Apologies to lientie for talking about cars too much - I know they're not very steampunk (and they'll never catch on!). I'll try and get some pictures together of my various projects and post them on here.

Until then I'll see you next Thursday!

Was nice to meet you too :) haha it's fine it was interesting, it's not like we ONLY have to talk about steampunk things. And cool thanks for the links, will look in to planning an outing there in the new year, see what else is about in the area first..

We were talking before about doing the ghost walk around Sheffield city centre, who here would be interested in doing that? Just posted on the Facebook group about it as well. Sounds like an excellent tour for the history of the city.
Mr Peter Harrow: how much does the ghost walk cost, do you remember?

From memory £5.00 but I can speak to Darren and Jo see if they have increased their fees. They are good value for money, better than other professional ghost walkers.

They actually have three different tours, so I will ask for the most Victorian of the three.

Thought I posted this already but apparently not-
If anyone fancies coming along on the ghost walk, we're now going to it on the Thursday 24th next week. Meet at the Old Queen's Head for the usual at 6pm then wander up to the town hall for the walk at 7.30pm, and it costs £5 :)

Weather permitting!

I probably won't be along tomorrow, too icy and snowy! Brrrr!
